Writing Development Economics No time for Covid

Sometime back I indicated that with Covid becoming less, I am moving on to my priority of working on development economics. But Covid doesn’t seem to be going away.

I am tempted to write more about Covid. But I just don’t have the time to read to look and listen to videos of those I value.

I am reaching an important phase of writing my next book on Development Economics. So, I find it difficult to detach myself from that book.

I know many of you are interested in knowing the most current update on Covid. Therefore, I thought I’ll share some of the videos I would have watched and shared the information.

There are four that I would like to share with you.

One of the best to get the current information on Covid is Dr John Campbell. I have given the link to one of his videos. If you subscribe to his videos, then you will get them regularly.

The second one is a special online presentation by experts from CMC. The video is entitled as follows: Update on Omicron Variant. This presentation is purely medical looking at different areas. The link is given below.


The third one is also medical but looks at different aspects from time. I have given them according to the order of importance in terms of what you will learn. I have given the link below.

Dr Mike Hansen youtube


The fourth one is research news from Johns Hopkins regarding the ineffectiveness of complete lockdowns. The link is given below

I thought this is the easiest way I can help you keep abreast with Covid as newer information becomes available.

Now coming to development economics. It has been both a challenge and an opportunity as I have been able to link up my lifetime experience with development economics. There are some interesting messages coming out. I will share these in due course of time.

I trust that you find this useful.
