Monday morning reads

A few interesting articles I came across this Monday morning:

  1. How to Use Occam’s Razor Without Getting Cut – I had only heard of the term ‘Occam’s Razor’ so far in the context of the popular blog on Digital Marketing and Analytics by Avinash Kaushik (by the way, if there is one blog on Digital Marketing and Analytics that you should follow, it is Avinash’s). This article helped me understand the true meaning behind this term. And it is a very interesting theory.
  2. What the success of rock climbing tells us about economic growth – My daughter is learning rock climbing and I must admit that this is one of the reasons I read through this article. Very interesting thoughts on what this sport tells us about our potential for future economic growth.
  3. USAID, Monsanto and the real reason behind Delhi’s horrific smoke season – The terrible air pollution in Delhi is all over the news (and social media). This article tells us the sad story of how ‘Big Food’ and ‘greedy MNCs’ in collusion with politicians are contributing to this ecological and health disaster.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
