  • Author’s reply » Trying to look at work of authors on this list periodically when time allows. Was reading Ulysses de la Torre's work this evening.

    Have also added subscription for myself to Ulysses de la Torre's Diverging Markets. The data set he collects is different, and I really like how he puts things into a perspective.

  • Author’s reply » Dear Belgrad,


    Thank you. Will add you to above list presently. I write mainly for Forbes website now. You may find my recent post about the Legatum Center at MIT interesting, as they are sending a lot entrepreneurs and projects to Africa; and today's startup is tomorrow's company.
