Happy 2014 :)!

Happy New Year to all Environmentally -Responsible (and hoping to be that) citizens of the World!

Times are changing, so is climate…our lives are changing…best way ahead for us, as a human race, is to lead our life in an eco-conscious way (reducing our eco-footprint as much as is practically possible)…

Here’s to a happy and healthy, safe and sound ‘Us’ in the year 2014!

Road is tough; goal is hard to achieve, but is reachable!

For all those who think ‘what actually economists do other than playing with equations and statistics’?

I refer to you, the following link:

Ed Dolan comments on Gernot Wagner’s Book, ‘But Will the Planet Notice?’

Briefly, economists can apply statistical distributions to analyze global phenomenon like ‘climate change’ and suggest corrective course of action; they can measure genetic variance to decide on which endangered species to focus on; can reinforce technically that no matter how difficult a goal is, it is achievable if market (mechanism) supports it.

Basically, pay for what you get – be it the ‘self-proclaimed’ right to pollute!

I particularly like the last proposition, which I can use to convince the polluters, which is technically the ‘There ain’t no such thing like a free lunch’ (TANSTAAFL) principle.

Movie review – Dhoom 3

Film had three definitive ‘Dhoom’ points – Start, Intermission and End…all three belonged to Aamir Khan…He did justice to the role and took it to the next level (admit that I am a big Aamir fan )…Certain stunts were awesome…for instance, bike on a rope.
Jai and Ali were their usual self. Katrina’s dance moves are good. Music is average.
Must watch for Aamir fans & lovers of fun action!
