WHO–World Bank tool of medico-economic evaluation. Dr Dholakia soon explained: ‘The whole purpose of this exercise, it is not finding out if it is a question of cost (…) [it was] to compare the two alternatives and what are the benefits and if one is superior to the other, then (…) what is the maximum I can spend to incentivize the people so that this succeeds.’ Thus he restated the report's executive summary, namely that it was not about assessing the feasibility of DOTS following the method central to health economics, i.e. costs

Expertise, flexibility and lifelong learning
Ian Lowrie

3 Becoming a real data scientist: expertise, flexibility and lifelong learning Ian Lowrie ‘How do I spend my time, as a student?’ Kyrill, a graduate student at the new Higher School of Economics (HSE) department of computer science, repeated my question back to me. He seemed not overly impressed at its incisiveness, but probably wanted to be polite and give a real answer. ‘Well, I guess I learn, you know? I also teach, some. And I spend a lot of time with computers.’ He paused, thinking it over for a while as I placed my coffee order with the waitress in what he

and applicability, Prakash argues, helps conceal the many societal factors, from politics to religion to economics that spill over and run into one another in the creation of different knowledge systems. Prakash reminds us of the central role that science has played in the creation of the modern Indian nation-state and the ways in which it has been co-opted and adapted within different spheres and discourses. The Indian government’s India is shining 67 pursuit of its ‘Power for all’ policy, aiming to provide electricity to every corner of the country, from urban

about the temporal, ethical and affective regimes that governance reconfigurations rely on. Austerity and the neoliberal reconfigurations of the welfare state need to be considered not only as the implementation of neoliberal economics or class hegemony (the Marxist argument), or neoliberal technologies of governmentality (the Foucauldian argument), but also as policies and state logics that are enabled by particular temporal regimes that are historically and culturally shaped and interact with global organising logics in historically specific ways. To understand the

they had themselves drawn from the years of post-socialist transformations, as much as they applied their professional knowledge in psychology or business management. So, on the one hand, even if they did not regard themselves as state agents, the trainers had a part in instituting the neoliberal welfare regime and promoting neoliberal morals. On the other hand, they were not working from a neoliberal script. They would mobilise various fields of knowledge (such as economics, business administration, psychology, civil society building or pseudo-scientific approaches

The frayed edges of the spectacle

gained in the spectacle. To achieve its resonant effects, the spectacle, like a mirror, must frame and hence cut out certain features in order to detach itself from the local conditions of its production, and make itself applicable across different spaces and domains. The spectacle that is mobilised, then, is always a partial spectacle; the networks of which it is a part, from local ways of doing, national infrastructures, politics and economics, must be screened out and left behind. Everything beyond the frame of the mirror must be denied its place in the spectacle if
