“Los científicos nos dicen que si la temperatura de la Tierra aumenta en
2ºC —lo que puede ocurrir en el término de 20 a 30 años— ese fenómeno
causará generalizadas situaciones de escasez de alimentos, olas de calor
sin precedentes y ciclones más intensos. A corto plazo, el cambio climático
ya en curso podría golpear aún más intensamente a los barrios de tugurios y
afectar grandemente las vidas y las esperanzas de personas y familias que
poco han contribuido a elevar la temperatura de la Tierra. Se requieren
medidas urgentes, no solo para reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto
invernadero, sino también para ayudar a los países a prepararse para un
mundo de fenómenos climáticos y meteorológicos extremos y dram…

TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB LYRICS

Ocean blue
What have I done to you?
Cut so deep
Yet growing through and through

Drawn apart
New York and London
All I see now
Are distant drumlins
The roads I knew
Became a city
And I wonder
Will you wait for me?

Although
I'm far away
I know I'll stay, I know I'll stay
Right there with you
Though
It might be too late
What would you say? What would you say?
What would you do?

I built a hive
Became one with the bees
But we fell like rain
Got lost into the sea
If I don't know
The wind will carry me
So just hold tight

Though
I'm far away
I know I'll stay, I know I'll stay
Right there with you
And though
It might be too late
What would you say? What would you say?
What would you do?

Over and over
Many setting suns
I have run
I have waited for the rain to come
When through that mist
I see the shape of you
And I know, and I know
That I'm in love with you

Though
I'm far away
I know I'll stay, I know I'll stay
Right there with you
And though
It might be too late
What wo…

Hirschman is the MAN!

Published by: Koldo Echebarría at the IDB

I just finished Jeremy Adelman´s biography of Albert O. Hirschman, Wordly Philosopher. It is a deep and detailed account of the life of a remarkable person. Reading it is a breath of fresh air, in which the values of integrity and consistency stand out in a career full of difficulties. Too original, too bold, too interdisciplinary, too reformist or too liberal. He suffered the mistrust of his enemies, but also from some who were considered friends. This made him wander for many years across occupations and universities, until late in his maturity, he found shelter at Princeton.

The irony is that Hirschman was the antithesis of a radical. His problem was, translated into a political metaphor, being too right-wing to liberals and too left-wing to conservatives. He would reach his convictions combining a very strong theoretical background with an empirical analysis free from bias and strongly anchored in real forces. His only bias was that of hope …
