Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • How Fox News changed the face of journalism: from Washington Post. India needs its own Fox News. “Fox has become a very real force in America’s culture and politics. It has altered the national dialogue with its different sensibilities and given conservatives a platform.”
  • Steve Jobs model for Education Reform: by Rupert Murdoch. “If we can engage a child’s imagination, there’s no limit to what he or she can learn. “
  • Business in India: A special report in The Economist. “Indian businesses are rewriting the rules of capitalism in a distinctive and unexpected way.”
  • Development and Governance: by Atanu Dey. “Good governance is about how government employees — from the minister on down to the clerk at the post office — consider to be their primary objective and function: to serve the citizens. Good governance is distinct from development. Development is about the infrastructure. Good governance precedes development, and is the more important bit.”
  • Redistribution is not inclusive growth: by Arvind Panagariya. “[In India], We tell the marginalised to stay where they are. Indeed, we do everything to bolt them down to their rural location offering employment and free health and education if they would stay where they are.”
