Cleaning up a few things

I am bit worried that in my earlier posts I may have come across a bit negative of Nordhaus' project. Although I think with the current methodology it will be hard to design a comparable time series, the project of providing some basic economic geography data is long over due. In doing this it is a remarkable achievment. We know surprisingly little about the global economic landscape and His work is a big start that needs to continue

How that data has been used might be a different matter see World Development Report 2009: Reshaping Economic Geography. goto,,menuPK:4231145~pagePK:64167702~piPK:64167676~theSitePK:4231059,00.html

If you want to read an interesting review of this report goto: Transactions of the Institute of Bristish Geographers (April 2009).

Lastly if you know of relevant economic geography blogs please let me know.
