Nicholas Stern is currently a chief economist of the world bank.
One day, I've received an email from the bank saying that Stern is coming and he would like to meet the university students, especially in economics.
In a way, a short meeting with him has changed the course of my life in a sense that it ensured me that my thought is quite valid and can be applied to the real world of international political economy.

These comprise a discussion paper entitled ‘What is the Economics of Climate Change?’, Sir Nicholas Stern’s Oxonia Lecture with the same title, and a short Technical Annex on ‘The science of climate change’.
In its opening paragraph, the Lavoisier submission notes that in their treatment of climate science the Oxonia papers contain ‘serious gaps and errors’; and it goes on to say that ‘”The science” of climate change prediction is still in its infancy, and the account of it given in these documents is questionable, misleading and biased’.
Unless Sir Nicholas and his team think again, and redefine their task, their final report will serve only to illustrate, and to reinforce, the present mishandling by governments of issues relating to climate change.

 BBC NEWS | Business | Colonial legacy still weighs on Africa
Professor Sir Nicholas Stern, former director of policy and research at the Commission for Africa, speaks about why Africa's colonial past remains a burden, and about what should be done to secure a prosperous future for this poverty struck continent.
It costs about twice as much to take goods out of Africa relative to other countries - that means taking goods from village to town, town to capital city, capital city to port, and port to ultimate destination.
It's much more costly in Africa for reasons of the weakness of infrastructure and the weakness of the governance, so these basic problems of actually getting business done are much more severe.
