WEEKEND READING 15-16 JUNE 2013


  1. The European Commission publishes proposals for new rules on preparing Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure statistics http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/portal/page/portal/excessive_imbalance_procedure/Documents/1_EN_ACT_part1_v11.pdf
  2. Hey I believe in female directors as much as the next guy, but this is trying too hard (despite the brilliant novel dataset) http://ftalphaville.ft.com/2013/06/10/1529102/a-female-director-purchases-shares-in-her-company-what-happens-next/
  3. A clue to the puzzling (if limited-audience) sex appeal of Golden Dawn gorillas: income inequality determines the relative attractiveness of grotesque masculinity. This is a rich seam to mine by the way -  how the failure of our fake middle class has taken middle-class masculinity with it, leaving some Greek women to hanker after ever more primitive men.
  4. That failed DEPA sale, explained (here, here and here).
  5. The IMF's researchers find that public sector employment crowds out private sector employment in resource rich countries
  6. Turkey's government is becoming increasingly deranged, vowing to treat all protesters as terrorists, and accusing foreign media of conspiracy.
  7. Russia bans 'gay propaganda'

Please remember that I am not notified of any comments and will not respond via comments.

Try to keep your criticism constructive and if you don't like something, do tell me how to fix it. If I use any of your suggestions, you will be duly credited.

Although I'm happy to entertain criticism of myself in the comments section, I will not tolerate hate speech. You will be given a written warning and after that I will delete further offending comments.

I will also delete any comments that are clearly randomly generated by third parties for their own promotion.

Occasionally, your comments may land in the spam box, which may cause them to appear with a slight delay as I have to approve them myself.

Thanks in advance for your kind words... and your trolling, if you are so inclined.
