I would expect such a person to at least have a holistic view of what all economics entails. For god’s sake, at least not assume that economics is limited to stocks and GDP growth!! And be so narrow in thinking that anyone using terms like ‘inclusive growth’ must be from an economics background. Or talk about the Human Development Index and not even know its components. It is not 1,2,3, and a few other such components! It is an INDEX – it is defined! And you are working in the social sector, blasting the state and corporates even for their mere existence, quoting dramatic figures from unknown reports, and then do not know your basics!! If I quote some of batchmates here, there will be too many profanities to handle. But I SO wanted to give him a piece of my mind. Maybe he will respond to some emails.
But it is not just him. Majority of the people equate economics with the stock market. Most of these do it out of mere ignorance, but I never understand how people’s worldview is based on so many assumptions and simplistic ideas. I do not assume anything about things I do not know. Or at least am open to what others have to say about those things. People!
Apart from that, please put your hands together for the new official creative brain on the blog. Second ad creative assignment in a row which was much appreciated! Yours truly obviously works only on the copy. Art work is still ART. 😛
Oh, some more people are a major piss-off — those who believe that they can talk all day and get away by not doing any work. Unfortunately, but obviously, I am working closely with a few such people. I cannot believe the kind of fancy shit they produce to impress some more mortals who have a dimmer wit.
Who all are sending me flowers next week?
