so, when i said google news i made the scope for this tool too big. i was thinking of aldaily.com, which has one page of links to articles, updated once a day. i thought having it automatically archive articles that contain some key phrases would be nice
another thing that would be nice is to be able to archive backarchives for academic journals (like policy review magazines at: policyreview.org/pastissues.html)
my goal is to have a pretty large database of articles/written pieces that i can process into evidence cards that look kinda like this:
I/L - CHINA’S RURAL POLITY IS KEY.
[b]CHINA’S ECONOMIC WELL BEING STILL RELIES ON A RURAL SAFETY NET SET UP BY LAND REFORMS THAT TOOK PLACE UNDER DENG.
Bardhan, 2005[/b] (Pranab Bardhan is Professor of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley, and co-chair of the MacArthur Foundation-funded Network on the Effects of Inequality on Economic Performance. He is Chief Editor of the Journal of Development Economics., “China, India Superpower? Not so Fast!” YaleGlobal, 25 October 2005)
China’s authoritarian system of government will likely be a major economic liability in the long run, regardless of its immediate implications for short-run policy decisions. In the economic reform process, the Chinese leadership has often made bold decisions and implemented them relatively quickly and decisively, whereas in India, reform has been halting and hesitant. This is usually attributed to the inevitably slow processes of democracy in India. And though this may be the case, other factors are involved. For example, the major disruptions and hardships of restructuring in the Chinese economy were rendered somewhat tolerable by a minimum rural safety net – made possible to a large extent by land reforms in 1978. In most parts of India, no similar rural safety net exists for the poor; and the more severe educational inequality in India makes the absorption of shocks in the industrial labor market more difficult. So the resistance to the competitive process of market reform is that much stiffer.
so, it requires a lot of research, organization, which DT has helped me loads with, i just wish i could “up my production.” [/u]
