New Blog on the Triple Crisis

Kevin Gallagher of Boston University / GDAE and Jayati Ghosh of Nehru University in India have just launched a blog on the Triple Crises confronting the world on finance, development and environment called the TripleCrisis.Com. Here' s their opening post:

Crises are not new to the world economy, or to developing countries. Indeed, our current predicament is a convergence of at least three crises: in global finance, development, and environment.  These areas are seemingly disparate but actually interact with each other in forceful ways to reflect major structural imbalances between finance and the real economy; between the higher income and developing economies; between the human economic system and the earth’s ecosystems.  This blog seeks to contribute to a more open and global dialogue around these three crises: about how they interact, and how they can collectively be solved.


Gallagher and Ghosh are both economists and good friends of Public Citizen, and I look forward to seeing what they do with TripleCrisis.Com.
