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.
