On our policy impact and a movie

The World Intellectual Property Organisation's (WIPO, one of Geneva's huge international organisation) new director must have been reading rigotnomics...He just announced that there would not be any life time contracts at WIPO anymore, but 5 year contracts (maximum), renewables. This will give WIPO the opportunity to fire puppets and snakes. It also seems that when you put the right leaders in the right place, things start to be put in order. But it's way too early to say that...

In other news, Easterly's "White man's burden" will become a documentary (so is freakonomics)! According to IMDB, it will be shot in Madagascar! Here's Easterly's epiphany on Youtube.
