When writing about “Capital”, like Piketty, can you just use data about it, without ever having seen it at work?
PS. Avoid the merchants of poverty!
I am a former Executive Director of the World Bank (2002-2004) for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Spain and Venezuela, and I write this blog to try to echo my voice and my noise. Though I know that many will only be able to read it in yellow or blue, I do make an effort to write it in green. The Radical Middle or the Extreme Center is not any wishy-washy place to be, in a world where swimming to any of the ideological shores provides for a much calmer shelter.
