I came to know Edward Hugh when, almost 3 years back, he was working on the “Living In ..” series of Blog aggregators. The project could not survive for long it seems but Barcelona based Edward persisted his tryst with the Internet. Ed is a trained Economist (the correct term is perhaps Macro Economist) and has been involved in consulting and research, even authoring a book. His creative mind does not stop him from dwelling on demography, anthropology, biology and sociology. Now Edward is also fascinated by Bonobos, so much so that he class himself Edward ‘the bonobo’ and has his blog titled “Bonobo Land”.
Recently, while researching on the issue of “Real Estate Bubble” in India for an article that I am co-authoring for the Hindi blogzine Nirantar, I got in touch with Edward again, after a long gap. I don’t really have a penchant for Economics yet I do find myself infrequently visiting the Indian Economy blog, it’s a thought provoking group blog where apart from Edward you would also find known Indian bloggers like Nitin Pai, Amit Varma, Atanu Dey, Arjun Swarup and Prashant Kothari baring their mind.
Ed has informed me about a new group blog he has launched, called Global Economy Matters, if you dabble in the subject do visit the blog. And if you liked the blog, chances are you would appreciate the Global Economy Blog Aggregator too.
