New trend of city going vertical helps save energy
Source: The Times of India Mar 30, 2016
The concept of a vertical city is fascinating and attractive to some people, and may be totally repulsive to others. In principle, living and working in a building of high storeys makes a great deal of sense; it prevents the loss of farmland and natural greenbelts, it reduces air pollution (since all commuting is vertical where the distances are much shorter and the transport mechanism much more efficient) and reduces the need for all the roads that service horizontal cities, so people can just walk out into parkland. ... more

Column: Reckoning with inequality
Source: The Financial Express Mar 29, 2016
When it comes to the rise in economic inequality since the 1970's in the United States and some other advanced economies, it doesnít really matter which measure of income distribution we choose: They all show the increase. And, while many competing explanations have been proposed, we do not need to agree about causes to concur on sensible policies to address the problem. There are many ways to measure inequality. Each can tell us something different. Many Asian countriesí recent economic success has reduced inequality by some measures (for example, a big fall in the poverty rate), but not by others (the high-low range has increased). In the US, however, all measures of inequality have pointed in the same direction since the turn of the century, reflecting the fact that the benefits of economic growth have gone almost exclusively to those at the top. The share of income received by the top 0.5% has reached 14%, where it was in the 1920's. Normally, one would think that diagnosing the cause of such a fundamental shift would be a necessary step in prescribing a cure. In that case, one might be discouraged by the over-abundance of plausible explanations that have been offered and the difficulty in choosing among them. ... more
