Doughnut Economics

I recently came across this interesting TED talk by the Oxford Economist Kate Raworth on the sustainable, regenerative and distributive economies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rhcrbcg8HBw Here is a longer version of her idea "Doughnut Economics" where she beautifully explains constraints or shortcomings of the Economics of the 20th Century. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZnyZuiesMY A few years back I had written a...

Manthan Samvaad 2020

One of the better outcomes of COVID-19 and lockdown is a sudden and sharp rise in online talks, interviews and conferences. Some really good shows have happened since March 2020.

Manu Joseph Columns in Mint

Even today I dabble with many puzzles in my free time and I am in fact working on a book of puzzles (well, I am ashamed of saying so, because it's in the making for last 2+ years). Puzzles, riddles etc, if used... Continue Reading →

Atomic Habits by James Clear

One of the interesting books I read this year is Atomic Habits by James Clear. Actually I am not a big fan of self-help, self-improvement books. Certainly not the TED Talk type preaching. And yet there are few individuals I follow and learn from. I liked Mark Manson's blog and also his book "The Subtle... Continue Reading →
