Little Book of Big Ideas – Economics

with 3 comments

From Aristotle to Amartya Sen, each of the mini essays presents a series of enthusiastic and illuminating insight on people who contributed significantly to the advancement of their fields. Two page entries explain concisely what they did and why it was vital. The essays also include an inset stating when and where the individuals were born and died, and a one-sentence summary of what they accomplished, and often include a second inset defining relevant vocabulary. Moore also sets the scientists within the context of their times.  

Ideas of top 50 economists are discussed; grouped in schools of thought that have fundamentally affected the way we live. I found it way too broad for investing success.  I felt the none of the authors could fully grasp protean dynamic of  inter related and ever changeful world. Nobel prizes were doled out for amateur ideas like Input Output model, inane I feel. How can anybody get a Nobel prize for a brainlessly simple ideas. I guess I am comparing these dudes to wrong class of people. I feel none of the 50 economists of last few hundred years come respectably close to some outstanding thinkers like Einstein, George Soros. A lot of them are unable to think abstract and in metaphysical terms like Yogananda, Vivekananda, Sri Yukteswar, Sri Aurobindo, who are now deemed mystic and religious personalities.

  3. Hi Vikas,

    My email is on “View my complete profile” on the right hand navigation link.

    I read about Suresh in a magazine “fluffmaster” as he is known. His investment in Edserv is already 10 bagger for him. He is know to chase bubbles and successful. I will highly recommend you to read CLSA report on education sector by Vajpayee. Available at this link

    Education is in same space as Microfinance. Better to hold education basket due to volatility rather than one stock in this sector. Govt. ICT is big opportunity but is getting commoditised. Long debtor days are a negative in this sector. Everonn and Educomp are a league ahead in game now.
