"The Logic of Life: Uncovering the New Economics of Everything" by Tim Harford

Tegeed medeej Niall Ferguson, Gideon Rachman hoyoriin recommend hiisen nomuudiig (especially the ones by Mazower and Zakaria):

Niall Ferguson
The history book that gave me the most pleasure this year was Simon Schama’s wonderfully exuberant The American Future: A History (The Bodley Head, £20). Each part is a variation on a key American theme: the nation’s ambivalent attitude to war; its tradition of religious toleration; its melting-pot identity; and its creatively destructive economy. A stylistic tour de force, this extraordinary essay also set the scene better than anything else published this year for Barack Obama’s election as president. An honourable mention is also due to Hitler’s Empire: Nazi Rule in Occupied Europe by Mark Mazower (Allen Lane £30), which found new and illuminating things about a subject that I had assumed I knew enough about.

Gideon Rachman
The most timely international affairs book of the year was Fareed Zakaria’s The Post-American World – published before the Wall Street crash, it captured the sense of a shift in global power. A close runner-up in timeliness was Edward Lucas’s The New Cold War – published before the Russian attack on Georgia, it is a well-researched and flamboyant anti-Kremlin polemic.

But my personal favourite was Lawrence Freedman’s A Choice of Enemies: America Confronts the Middle East, a masterly history of recent US foreign policy towards the Middle East since 1979 that traces the twists and turns of policy with clarity, understanding and the occasional hint of exasperation.

P.S: Dulguun-d: "Fanon" by John Edgar Wideman

As I watched, I felt a detached sympathy for those poor people living on a blighted island – until it dawned on me that I was one of them. Recent events had savaged my net worth by 60 per cent and pushed up my cost of living by more than 20 per cent. Iceland’s plight was mine, too. What I failed to appreciate at the time was the emotion of this unprecedented television address, particularly in the way it finished:

“Fellow countrymen ... If there was ever a time when the Icelandic nation needed to stand together and show fortitude in the face of adversity, then this is the moment. I urge you all to guard that which is most important in the life of every one of us, to protect those values which will survive the storm now beginning. I urge families to talk together and not to allow anxiety to get the upper hand, even though the outlook is grim for many. We need to explain to our children that the world is not on the edge of a precipice, and we all need to find an inner courage to look to the future ... Thus with Icelandic optimism, fortitude and solidarity as weapons, we will ride out the storm.

“God bless Iceland.”

Edda, my partner, was in tears on the sofa beside me.

Financial Crisis and Mongolian Economy

David Dollar on current financial crisis and how it could provide an opportunity for reform (?!) in Mongolia:

Much of the discussion among parliamentarians, government, and civil society reflected a sense that the global economic turmoil presents Mongolia with both challenge and opportunity. Gaidar spoke of the current troubles as a "window of opportunity for reform." During the boom, Mongolia’s decision-makers dithered about reaching agreement with the big international mining firms to develop world-class copper and coal deposits that are as yet untapped. Now, the global environment for mining is much less favorable, so to some extent Mongolia missed an opportunity. But Mongolia can still reach agreements that would be highly favorable to the country once prices rise again -- as they inevitably will some day. Cleverly structured contracts can ensure that Mongolia gets a fair share of future windfalls.

Kicking Our Oil Addiction

The falling oil prices - a good news? Ali deer uyed neg bichij baisan yum olov:

Тэгвэл яг энэ хандлагаар одоогийн Монголд тулгараад буй ганц хоёр асуудлыг ойлгох гээд үзье. Өдгөө нэгэнт биднээс шалтгаалахгүйгээр тэнгэрт хадчихаад буй нефтийн үнийг өөрсдөдөө хэрхэн ашигтайгаар эргүүлж болох вэ? Миний бодлоор бензиний өндөр үнэ одоогийн Улаанбаатар хотын метр бүрт шигсэн машинуудыг цэгцлэх цорын ганц арга. Дэлгэрүүлбээс, хэт их зардлаас зайлсхийсэн хүмүүс онцын шаардлагагүй бол машин хэрэглэдгээ багасгана. Энэ нь нэг талаараа бидний толгойны өвчин болоод буй замын түгжрэлийг бага ч атугай хөнгөлөх бол нөгөө талдаа дан ганц өвлийн цаг гэлтгүй зүлэг ногоогоор элбэг урин дулаан цагт хүртэл дийлдэхээ байсан хотын утаа тортгийг багасгахад дөхөм болгох юм (цаашлаад бидний бензинээс хамаарах хамаарлийг ч багасгаж чадна). Гэхдээ энэ нь ард түмнээ бүгдийг нь явгаруул гэж уриалж байгаа хэрэг биш ээ. Нэгэнт хувийн тээвэр ашиггүй тусч байгаа бол хэн хэндээ ашигтай нийтийн тээвэр хэрэглэхийг хөхиүлэн дэмжих хэрэгтэй л гэж байгаа хэрэг.

Ер нь шатахууны үнийн хөөрөгдөл Улаанбаатар хотын нийтийн тээврийн түүхэнд магадгүй цоо шинэ хуудсыг нээж байж болох юм. Урьд өмнө нь өдөр хоногоо дөнгөн данган аргацаадаг байсан нийтийн тээвэр энэ удаад ашигтайгаар ажиллах алтан боломжийн өмнө тулж ирлээ. Нэг үгэндээ өнөөх адлуулаад байдаг автобус, тролейбуснуудад машин унахаас татгалзаж буй асар олон хүний эрэлтийг хангах үүрэг ноогдож байна. Мөн түүнчлэн энэ сиймхийг ашиглаад автопаркаа шинэчлэн хотын өнгө үзэмжийг өөд нь татаж болохыг ч үгүйсгэхгүй.

Гэхдээ хүмүүс нийтийн тээвэр рүү хошуураад ирэхээр өөдөөс нь өрсөөд тасалбарыхаа үнийг нэмээд байвал бас утгагүй. Магадгүй чухам яг тэр үед л өнөөх оролцохгүй юмгүй төрийн үүрэг товойн гарч ирж байж мэдэх. Энэ нөхцөлд төр дээрээс нь татаас олгох замаар үнийг зориуд бага байлгаж нийтийн тээвэр ашиглахыг хүмүүсийг урамшуулах хэрэгтэй мэт. Гэхдээ нэгэнт мөнгө өгч байгаа тул төр оронд нь үйлчилгээнд явж байгаа тээврүүдэд аюулгүй байдлын чанга хатуу шаардлага тавих хэрэгтэй. Адаглаад л автобусанд хүмүүсийг шпротлохгүй, хүнийг 15 минутаас илүү хүлээлгэдэггүй болгохыг шаардах учиртай. Ингэж чадсан цагт түргэн шуурхай, тохилог нийтийн тээвэр хотын одоогийн хөдөлгөөнийг сийрүүлж чадах юм.

WSJ writes:
The good news: Oil prices have fallen. The bad news: Oil prices have fallen.

Thomas Friedman on Denmark's solution:
What was the trick? To be sure, Denmark is much smaller than us and was lucky to discover some oil in the North Sea. But despite that, Danes imposed on themselves a set of gasoline taxes, CO2 taxes and building-and-appliance efficiency standards that allowed them to grow their economy — while barely growing their energy consumption — and gave birth to a Danish clean-power industry that is one of the most competitive in the world today. Denmark today gets nearly 20 percent of its electricity from wind. America? About 1 percent.

The Angel of History

A Klee drawing named “Angelus Novus” shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. His eyes are staring, his mouth is open, his wings are spread. This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe that keeps piling ruin upon ruin and hurls it in front of his feet. The angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what has been smashed. But a storm is blowing from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such violence that the angel can no longer close them. The storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call progress.

Walter Benjamin, "Ninth Thesis on the Philosophy of History"

This and That

Looks like I wasn't the only one who noted the similarities between RFK's and BO's campaigns :D Washington Post's Anne Applebaum saw their striking similarities as well (she even cited the exact same article :P)

The politician-as-rock-star is nothing new, of course. Some of that same celebrity charisma—not so much messianic as pop-iconic—also drew cheering, fainting crowds to Bobby Kennedy's primary campaign in 1968. According to historian Thurston Clarke, after one RFK speech "waves of students rushed the platform, knocking over chairs and raising more dust. They grabbed at him, stroking his hair and ripping his shirtsleeves." Some of the same mix was in the air at that time, too: youth, hope, change, racial progress. The 1968 primary campaign, RFK had even declared, was about "not simply the leadership of our party and even our country. It is [about] our right to the moral leadership of this planet."
