Should aid workers fly business class?; latest on land grabs; dodgy regressions; Chinese carbon emissions; how to set up your own tax dodge and a great climate change youtube: links I liked

Chris Blattman has kicked off a heated debate on whether aid officials should fly business class, see here for example

Over on global dashboard, Mark Weston provides an overview on land grabs

William Easterly applies his tests for dodgy regressions to Paul Collier’s latest book and Chris Blattman (again, when does he work or sleep?) joins in the fun by adding Karl Popper’s guidelines for scientific inquiry

Paul Krugman gets exercised about Chinese carbon emissions

And some youtube fun: watch an intern at a US NGO set up a tax-dodging corporation in Panama

or finally, if all the graphs don’t convince you, watch this youtube on climate change (and send the link to your friends)
