O que é este blog?

Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

Project Syndicate - um blog inteligente

Já transcrito aqui, mas a inflação de ideias inteligentes é sempre bem vinda:


Este blog, como dito em seu frontspício (que não é parente de hospício), se ocupa de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. (OK, de vez em quando aparecem aqui também algumas ideias pouco inteligentes, mas isso é para equilibrar e para contrabalançar.)
Pois bem, agora quero apresentar um site, um blog melhor dito, que também está nesse espírito. Não tenho a pretensão de fazer concorrência com ele, apenas de ser um "irmão menor".
