Mostly Economics

I came across this paper by IMF economists Shekhar Aiyar and Rodney Ramcharan on the same topic. I have not read the paper but has become top priority. Nothing could be better than to read about cricket and take economics lessons.

I came to know of this paper from this summary of the paper. The paper says:

Using runs per Test to measure consistency in Test matches?

Mostly Economics

It is a constant debate in cricket – who is the best batsman of all time/1990s/2000s etc? Similarly for bowlers as well. Given the question and the interest it generates, how do we measure performance> The standard measure is averages which experts believe is unfair as people sho stay not out tend to have higher averages. This measure is unfair especially to openers who face the most hostile bowling conditions and have much greater possibilities of getting out.  For an economics student, similarity to discussions on GDP is too obvious.

Anantha Narayana looks at the measures and suggests runs per test is a pretty useful indicator as well.

My only experience with secure email networks is pretty pesky filters stopping you from sending confidential material outside the network. The emails bounced.

I do not understand how a secure email server could communicate with one that is not  such as Hillary Clinton’s private email server thin the secure network without a special dispensation.

With hundreds of thousands use secure email servers in the US government, the network administrator would have to have filters that bounce emails with keywords and classifications.

More sensible agencies that handle classified materials do not allowstaff to take work home. If they do, it must be on a secure laptop with no capacity to print or download.
