This week’s links:
- Are you a Coach or a Player: by Vineet Nayar. “A big mistake happening across corporates around the world. The CEO and managers refuse to give up control because they still think they are Maradonas.”
- The Third Replicator: by Susan Blackmore in the New York Times. “Imitation is not just some new minor ability. It changes everything. It enables a new kind of evolution.”
- ADB Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2010: “The special chapter “The Rise of Asia’s Middle Class” looks at the growth and impacts of the region’s rapidly expanding middle class, and resulting economic and policy implications.
- Contest of the Century: from The Economist.”As China and India rise in tandem, their relationship will shape world politics. Shame they do not get on better.”
- Distinguishing American and Indian democracy: by Atanu Dey. ” Indian democracy is about the citizens choosing who they will obey, while American democracy is about the people choosing who they will employ to carry out the wishes of the people. In the former case, it is servants choosing their masters, and in the latter case, masters choosing their servants.”
