The Ratings Revolution

CAMBRIDGE – “Bonjour Monsieur, comment pourrais-je vous aider?” asks the obsequious concierge at my Paris hotel. I immediately wonder what happened to the city’s infamous haughtiness – especially toward American tourists.

In Search of Convergence

CAMBRIDGE – One puzzle of the world economy is that for 200 years, the world’s rich countries grew faster than poorer countries, a process aptly described by Lant Pritchett as “Divergence, Big Time.” When Adam Smith wrote The Wealth of Nations in 1776, per capita income in the world’s richest country – probably the Netherlands – was about four times that of the poorest countries.

On Liberia National Symbols

On February 6, 2014, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of our nation delivered a speech at Paynesville City Hall on “Official Launch of the National Symbols Review Project”. In this speech the President said “. . . gathering the views of Liberians as to what we need to do to unify people, to have a sense of national identity, to feel that we all have shared values, we all have one destiny, one people – some of things identified as not promoting the spirit of unity were some of our National Symbols – the Flag, the Anthem, Awards, among others”.
