ジェフリー・サックス本、速読開始

 Jeffrey D. Sachs, The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time, (The Penguin Press)を読み始める。U2ボーカルのBonoが前書きを書いていることが注目されている本だが、興味深い箇所を抜書きしてみる。

 In some ways, today's development economics is like eighteenth-century medicine, when doctors used leeches to draw blood from their patients, often killing them in process. (p. 74)

leechというのは「ヒル」のこと。

 I propose a new method for development economics, one that I call clinical economics and good clinical medicine. (p. 75)

 A graduate student in an American Ph.D. program in economics may very well study the development crisis in Africa without ever setting foot in the country or countries under study. An adviser may hand over a data set, say for Nigerian households, and ask the student to do a statistical analysis without the benefit of context, history, or direct observation. Years later, the student may have the opportunity to show up in Nigeria for the first time. (p. 78)

 In table 1, I describe a seven-part diagnostic checklist that should be part of the "physical exam" of any impoverished country. (p.83)

ということで第4章まで速読。

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.
