A bit of Dasgupta

I actually got to meet Dasgupta a few years ago.  It was an interesting conversation until he asked, in his perfectly correct English accent, where I had taken my education.  I said something like "I'm an analyst, I got my learning on the streets," and he looked at me with an inscrutable gaze tinged with bafflement and pity.  The conversation faded and drifted away on soft Dutch breeze.

Anyway, Brad DeLong makes his students read this, and you should, too:

DeLong's note on why Dasgupta should be read is here:
