WEEKEND READING: 28-29 SEPTEMBER


  1. Greek Golden Dawn leadership arrested. This one comes complete with hilarious photo:
  2. Cato releases its second economic freedom of the world report. All data are two years old. Come on guys.
  3. The sociology of the hipster: one of the best NYT articles I've read, ever. Plus, just substitute 'taste' and 'culture' with 'politics' and you've got an equally valid theory. Also check out the anti-hipster backlash in Berlin.
  4. First the OECD, now the IMF examines how global value chains really work
  5. Apparently someone at the World Bank has access to estimates of income inequality in the Byzantine empire. Read the article though, it's interesting.
  6. The Dutch embassy and the Greek-Dutch business community have invested in Orange Grove, a business incubator in the centre of Athens. We should be more grateful.
  7. Greek readers can have a quick chuckle at this (spoof, I should hope!) chronicle of the rise and fall of a Greek petrolhead: http://www.car.gr/classifieds/cars/view/4099986/
