Was never interested in development economics… but recently watched Bill Gates Netflix + finally picking up “Enlightenment Now” + inspired to read more about Poor Economics after MIT professors winning Nobel Prize for tackling poverty.
It seems so distant yet so urgent! Will post some book summaries here later.
There were so many amazing classes in MIT that I didn’t take at all. Urgh! Justice in Harvard that I could cross-register, Development Economics, Philosophy, Aerospace Engineering, Urban Planning… all important pillars in humanity. (Luckily I took Linguistics though, great class!)
Anyway too late to regret. Honestly wouldn’t have such epiphany until today at 30 years old 😑
Back in college I was still a huge Japanese fan. All I care was a good GPA to find a good internship/permanent job!
