My Blogroll - First Installment


T
he response to BJ's 15-Minute Learning Rule has been phenomenal, something I did not expect. Thank you!


Some readers suggested that I share the names of Web sites / blogs, which I access to learn. If there is something that I like as much as learning, then it is sharing that learning! 


In the first installment of a multi-post series, I bring you five of my favourite Web sites / blogs:


www.vijaygovindarajan.com 

Prof Vijay Govindarajan is a world renowned authority on strategy and innovation. His articles are full of insight and nuggets of uncommon wisdom.
http://chellaney.net/
Brahma Chellaney is a professor at the New Delhi-based Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi and author of Water: Asia’s New Battleground. One of India's best defence and military strategy experts, you will particularly like his analyses of Indian strategic and foreign policy issues.
www.freakonomicsblog.com
I have read both the works of Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner - the immensely interesting Freakonomics and its poor (at least in IMHO) sequel, Superfreakonomics. Being unconventional in most things I do, I like their unconventional takes on matters conventional.  
www.ritholtz.com/blog
I like economics, particularly global economics. For all matters pertaining to the U.S. economy, there is no portal better than this; trust me, Barry Ritholtz's take on all matters American economy is perspicacious. 
www.bbcnews.com 
Though I do not believe that the BBC is impartial and objective, it still is a very good source on most global current issues, including on technology issues. I suggest that you check out its Special Reports section, which is a treasure trove of backgrounders on crucial global issues.
I hope this first installment helps; there are a large number of sites I follow. But as I said they all will come in an installment series.

Dear Bharat Sir,

Thank you very much. Would lie in waiting for further installments.

"If there is something that I like as much as learning, then it is sharing that learning!" - inspirational statement.

And Happy Teachers' Day to you sir,
Dheep.

Sir,

In your next instalment, please to include a good source/blog on the Indian economy, something on the same lines as Ritholtz's blog.
