Professor Joan Robinson, of University of Cambridge was a friend and well-wisher of CDS. Needless to add, she came to know of the Centre and its activities through her association with Professor K N Raj. She was a frequent visitor to the Centre until January, 1982 and participated in all activities of the Centre and especially student seminars. Professor Robinson donated royalties of two of her books (Selected Economic Writings, Bombay: Oxford University Press, 1974, Introduction to Modern Economics (jointly with John Eatwell), Delhi; Tata McGraw Hill, 1974) to CDS, both for which the copyright is held by the Centre. The original funds thus created out of the accumulated royalties have been supplemented by a generous grant from Professor Ravi Kanbur, Professor of Economics, Cornell University, USA while he was the first K N Raj National Fellow at the Centre during 2013-14, to form the Joan Robinson Endowment. The Joan Robinson Prize is awarded from the annual returns of this endowment.
The M G Kanbur Prize:
Awarded to best performer in the quantitative courses of the MA (Applied Economics) programme. These include three of the core courses on Mathematics, Statistics and Econometrics taught in the first year of the programme. The best performer is the one who obtains the highest Average Grade Point (AGP) in these three courses at the end of two semesters. The AGP will be computed on the basis of grades secured in the first attempt in every course. In the event of a tie, the prize amount will be equally shared among the eligible candidates
Professor M G Kanbur was among the generation of Indian economists who first used quantitative mathematical and econometric methods to analyze the economy of India and other developing countries. Indeed, his Ph.D at the University of Birmingham, UK, was on spatial econometrics methods applied to the rice economy of South India. He was also a close associate of Professor K.N. Raj. He was one of the first economists that Professor Raj invited to visit CDS. He became a regular visitor to the Centre during its early founding days and always spoke warmly of his association with CDS.
The M G Kanbur prize is based on annual returns from the MG Kanbur Endowment instituted at the Centre by his son, Professor Ravi Kanbur, Professor of Economics, Cornell University, USA
Vintage Tricycle Resurrection with Modern Technology I wish I could say that this bike was passed down in our family and I could Cheap NFL Jerseys detail its history but it did not. Once all cheap nfl jerseys the metal was stripped and cleaned it is time to repaint. First step is a high adhesion primer. I could not find replacement pedals that would fit on the trike,all of them were too wide for this small childs bike. When I saw the bike I knew I wanted to do a leather seat. The original seat was full of Bondo to fill a big divot where the support bar was welded. As I stripped away the paint I uncovered the original fender graphics which were in remarkably good shape. Not everything I needed was made new, there is a huge market in vintage bike parts and many things can be found on online shops and eBay. I think this little red tricycle is the perfect example of "Making it Real", without modern technology it would not be worth the investment required t. I am calling this a "Resurrection" not a "Restoration" as I took some liberties with materials and methods in bringing this childs tricycle back to life. But at the end of the day it is true to the spirit of the original and the smile on a little girls face 40 or 50 years ago would look the same as the smile on my god daughters face when she saw her "new" tricycle for the first time. My "Modern Resurrection" involved some very hi tech features: 3D printed pedals; laser etched cut leather seat; computer reproduced cut vinyl fender graphics lastly: laser cut and engraved acrylic "head badge". I personalized most of the custom cheap jerseys from china parts with her initials (she now has her own logo!) and the vinyl graphics were digital reproductions of the original wholesale nhl jerseys graphics found on the fender as I was stripping away the layers of paint. Without technology I would not have had the skills to "Make it Real" and in the process bring this tricycle back for, hopefully, another 50 years of enjoyment.
law. Be prepared emotionally to accept and then overcome the rejection from those who will tell you any one of the following things: You don’t have the necessary track record for funding! Your business is undercapitalized! You have ten competitors in existence already much larger than you will ever be! Your concept is a great idea cheap nhl jerseys china as wholesale jerseys a "lifestyle" company, meaning it will support your lifestyle but not with their money! If you can’t wholesale nfl jerseys face the thought of being humiliated, facing endless self doubt, not sleeping, or being irritable with just about everyone around you that you care about, think real hard about attempting to raise money to start a business. Don’t be astounded at Cheap Jerseys From China what people expect wholesale jerseys to own in return for their investment, cheap jerseys hence, the percentage of your company that they will demand for a seemingly small investment. Most people who start up businesses intend to remain in control of them, otherwise, why would you start one up in the first place. But when it comes to serious money (for example,
