Understanding India's Food Inflation

Rahul Anand & Naresh Kumar

Understanding India's Food Inflation by Rahul Anand & Naresh KumarOver the past decade, India has seen a prolonged period of high inflation, to a large extent driven by persistently-high food inflation. This paper investigates the demand and supply factors behind the contribution of relative food inflation to headline CPI inflation. It concludes that in the absence of a stronger food supply growth response, food inflation may exceed non-food inflation by 2½-3 percentage points per year. The sustainability of a long-term inflation target of 4 percent under India's recently-adopted flexible inflation targeting framework will depend on enhancing food supply,...

The Green and the Black: The Complete Story of the Shale Revolution, the Fight over Fracking, and the Future of Energy

Gary Sernovitz

The Green and the Black: The Complete Story of the Shale Revolution, the Fight over Fracking, and the Future of Energy by Gary Sernovitz

Gary Sernovitz leads a double life. A typical New York liberal, he is also an oilman - a fact his left-leaning friends let slide until the word "fracking" entered popular parlance. "How can you frack?" they suddenly demanded, aghast. But for Sernovitz, the real question is, "What happens if we don't?"

Fracking has become a four-letter word to environmentalists. But most people don't know what it means. In his fast-paced, funny, and lively book, Sernovitz explains the reality of fracking: what it is, how it can be made safer, and how the oil business works.

He also tells the bigger story. Fracking...

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises by John Graves

Today's wind turbines

  • Kill millions of birds worldwide: raptors are threatened with extinction

  • Require significant amounts of CO2 to manufacture

  • Require enormous back up coal and gas fired power plants creating yet more CO2

  • Can be unhealthy or harmful to local residents

  • Are deadly - to core component manufacturers and maintenance personnel

  • Have enormous costs - paid for by the taxpayer


There are many alternative wind turbine choices that do no harm to birds or people. They are far more cost effective, as well.

Become an Event Planner: Secrets for Getting Hired from Employers, Recruiters, and Event Professionals by Matthew James

Wondering why you didn??t get a reply to that resume you sent out?

Most people trying to break into the events industry go about it in entirely the wrong way; you can't just take a course, graduate, and start applying for entry-level positions. Unlike most professions, a career in event planning does not require qualifications. Employers are looking for people with the right skills, personal qualities, and??"above all else??"experience. In this industry, getting hired doesn??t involve blindly sending out resumes to get experience; it's all about networking, contacts, and relationships.

Sustainable Urban Transport Financing from the Sidewalk to the Subway: Capital, Operations, and Maintenance Financing

Arturo Ardila-Gomez & Adriana Orteg?n-S?nchez

Sustainable Urban Transport Financing from the Sidewalk to the Subway: Capital, Operations, and Maintenance Financing by Arturo Ardila-Gomez & Adriana Orteg?n-S?nchezUrban transport systems are essential for economic development and improving citizens' quality of life. To establish high-quality and affordable transport systems, cities must ensure their financial sustainability to fund new investments in infrastructure while also funding maintenance and operation of existing facilities and services. However, many cities in developing countries are stuck in an "underfunding trap" for urban transport, in which large up-front investments are needed for new transport infrastructure that will improve the still small-scale, and perhaps, poor-quality systems, but...
