In the US for next two weeks (Washington, New York and Boston). Here’s a list of public events if you want to come and discuss How Change Happens (seems pretty relevant right now, huh?)

What is a Muslim? Funny, smart and very effective 3m video.

Best/Worst charity ads of the year. Rusty Radiator awards now open for voting – get stuck in. Background here

economist-what-ppl-care-aboutattitudes-to-globalizationTwo important Economist charts to mull over (click to expand): What people care about, and attitudes to globalization

Why is the World Bank ‘Doing Business’ flagship promoting a race to the bottom on corporate taxes? José Antonio Ocampo and Valpy Fitzgerald on the warpath.

Some new/potentially helpful angles on the US elections. Poor health was an even better predictor than education i US voting behaviour. And amid all the uncertainty and guesswork, Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi may not be a bad guide to what to expect.

An animated map of 40 years of rising obesity: disturbing animation, especially for all those recovering from Thanksgiving blowouts…..

A perfect illustration of ‘build bridges not walls’. Utterly lovely 5m video where refugees and others are asked to look into each other’s eyes.
