a quick graph..

April 4, 2008

I usually tend to think that the benefits of the mobile revolution are a bit overblown but this is just too striking.

kerala fishing prices

That’s the variation of weekly fish prices in three different costal regions of India where fish is a staple and fishing a major economic activity. Not only a neat graph, this is considerable improvement for the lives of both fishermen and fish consumers. And did I mention that those regions are in Kerala of all places ?

Oh yeah, taken from this paper (pdf).

    This is fascinating. However, I’m not able to access the PDF file you mention because your URL contains your MIT cookie. When I delete the cookie from the URL, MIT Press informs me it does not have the article. Could you perhaps provide us with the article title, the names of its author(s), and the journal in which the article appeared? Sorry to make such a pre-Internet request, but such traditional referencing information will help us find the article when your URL remains recalcitrant. Thankyou.

    the correct link should be: http://www.mitpressjournals.org/doi/pdf/10.1162/qjec.122.3.879

    However if that doesn’t work, here’s the info:

    “THE DIGITAL PROVIDE: INFORMATION (TECHNOLOGY),
    MARKET PERFORMANCE, AND WELFARE IN THE
    SOUTH INDIAN FISHERIES SECTOR” by ROBERT JENSEN published in Vol. CXXII August 2007 Issue 3 of THE QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS
