It seems that, like in modern Jazz, a great generation is leaving us. 
The mathematician, who won the Nobel prize for economics in 2012, died on March 12th aged 92.

Excellent interview with a Dutch philosopher, Rob Riemen, director of the Tilburg based Nexus institute. Somehow it improved my view on life, being European etc. I guess I should buy and read the book!

Europeaan zijn is geen kwestie van economie, politiek of geografie, meent de Nederlandse cultuurfilosoof Rob Riemen. Het is een humanistische ingesteldheid. Een gesprek over de grenzeloosheid van ideeën, het verval van onze universiteiten en de gelijkenis tussen een e-boek en een sekspop.

A very good article in The Economist on what the opportunities for energy and cllimate policies offered by the current low oil prices. But no word about what to do with the proceeds from carbon taxation. Put them into research to take away the current technical problems on implementing renewables? And please do not forget economic research here.
MOST of the time, economic policymaking is about tinkering at the edges. Politicians argue furiously about modest changes to taxes or spending. Once in a while,...

Der ewige Streit um eine Lösung der griechischen Schuldenkrise verschleiert den Blick auf die globalen Herausforderungen der EU. Das könnte sich noch rächen.

Auch in Amerika ändert sich die öffentliche Meinung: Die Ablehnung von fossilen Brennstoffen etabliert sich inzwischen sogar in seiner Heimat, stellt der Klimaautor Bill McKibben fest.

Very interesting article of Hans-Werner Sinn on the Varoufakis strategy. A must-read for Germans! Especially the 'economic dwarves' that are attacking him on thinking independently. I also noticed that Sinn wanted to say something about this in Frank Plasberg's ARD program 'Hart aber Fair' but was hindered by left-wing arrogance. Indeed, please, think again.

Another article in The Economist on the German 'Energiewende' and what is so wrong with it. But Germans won't listen. As usual they know better... poor energy consumers.....

FAZ with a very good article on the German Climate Targets... in German though.

Kaum etwas verändert dieses Land so stark wie das Bemühen, etwas Gutes für das Klima zu tun. Das Mantra durchdringt die Wirtschaft und den Alltag der Menschen. Warum Sinn und Irrsinn dabei nah beieinanderliegen.
