wye.jpg (24997 bytes)Books about following a river from its source to the end. Ideal! I'd been looking for this book for a long time and had almost given up. Isn't that always when you find things you seek? In a second hand bookshop in the hinterland near Noosa in Queensland, on a rainy day when the surf was flat, I found two of Robert Gibbings' books, Coming Down the Wye and Coming Down the Seine.

While the engravings are much of the charm of these books, the love of the local, the small detail and the fundamental interest in the waterway make this worth finding. Here, he describes his first attempt to find the source of the river Wye:

It was mid-winter when I first tried to reach the source of the Wye, on Plynlimon. In the morning, when I left Llangurig, the sun had risen in a clear sky, and was throwing its radiance over the snow-covered hills. To the west the sky was green as olives and the ice-fringed river, reflecting that colour, showed all the lights of an aquamarine. Higher in the hills the water in the tributaries flowed through crystal gorges, It was as if some giant crucibles of molten glass had been spilled along either bank. In sheltered pools, where the water was deep and calm, delicate fern-like plates of ice stretched out to meet each other over mid-stream, but on windier stretches the frozen surface was rippled and polished, and dark as the water flowing beneath. Where there had been a waterfall there were now caverns of ice, festooned with stalactites, the rock faces on either side shining like chandeliers with frozen spray. (2)

Gibbings fails to find the source of the Wye on that journey because the weather turns against him, but later he does find the source as he relates here:

I was at the source of the Wye. After a gently murmuring underground the water welled up, brushing aside the young spring grass to form a pool no bigger than a bowler hat. Then gently it glided between rich tussocks of moss and rushes still bent from their load of winter snow, until it tumbled like a shower of sequins over the black velvet of a peat face. (3)

So the narrative begins, at its original source. I liked the way he wanted to find the source, and his unshakeable confidence he had found it. There is something important about being at 'that place', something I felt when I stood at the junction of the Buchan and Snowy Rivers in Victoria late in 1996. You could point to this place on the map, where two rivers joined, or where, more nebulously, a river began.

thames.jpg (16891 bytes)I also liked the extract from Coming Down the Seine when Gibbings describes his 'coracle' drifting over flooded farmlands away from the river's course. Like Thoreau's axe at the bottom of the pond or the ancient city of Atlantis, Gibbings is able to see into a hidden otherworld:

. . . looking down on submerged grasses as though they were soft corals gently swaying on a tropic reef . . . floating over it I could see field paths and cattle tracks and once an iron plough reminded me or Tir na n-Og and other islands drowned by enchantment. (42)

Like Gilbert White, Robert Gibbings is interested in the small details that make up the local; I suppose they are celebrations too of an England that was already passing, if it hadn't gone already. The book I found in that bookshop in Noosa is a first edition, published in the dark days of 1943 'in complete uniformity with the authorised economy standards'. In 1943 there may have been something of an urgency about celebrating the most English of things.

The Golden Cockerel Press was founded by Harold M. Taylor in 1920. In 1924, Robert Gibbings joined the press and further developed the aim of making finely produced books available to a wider public at a reasonable price. Eminent artists such as Eric Gill, Osbert Lancaster, Blair Hughes-Stanton and Gibbings were commissioned to illustrate the publications. In 1933, Christopher Sandford, along with Owen Rutter and Francis Newbury, acquired the press. Separate bibliographies of the press's output were issued. Pertelote covers the years 1936 to 1943 and features four books illustrated by JBW.

Robert Gibbings (British, 1889-1958)

Robert Gibbings was born in Cork, Ireland. He was educated locally and went on to study medicine for two years at University College, Cork. He later studied art, briefly at the Slade and also at the Central School of Art. He began to experiment with wood engraving, and while on active service in World War I made numerous drawings which he later engraved. After the war he was instrumental in setting up the Society of Wood Engravers. Between 1924 and 1933 Gibbings owned the Golden Cockerel Press at Waltham St Lawrence, near Reading. He directed all aspects of book printing and illustration, decorating many of the publications with wood engravings by himself and other leading artists including Eric Gill. During his time at Waltham he carved a small number of major pieces in stone. The economic slump forced him to sell the press in 1933 and he moved to Cornwall. In 1936 Gibbings became senior lecturer in typography, book production and engraving at Reading University. In 1938 he held a one-man exhibition at Reading Museum titled ‘Twenty Years of Engraving’. His long interest in natural history and his travels resulted in a number of books which he both wrote and illustrated:Sweet Thames Run Softly (1940) was a particular success. In 1955 Gibbings moved from London to Long Wittenham, a village on the banks of the upper Thames. His last book,Till I End My Song, published in 1957, is principally about this village.

Ivica Osim

伊万·“伊维卡”·奥西姆(Ivan "Ivica" Osim 1941年5月6日-),波黑足球教练,现任日本国家足球队主教练。






On November 16, 2007, Osim was struck by a stroke at his residence in Chiba, Japan while watching television[2]. Despite early reports stating his condition as life-threatening,[3][4] Osim has since been heading towards recovery[5] while still remaining unconscious in an intensive care unit at the Juntendo University hospital in Urayasu, Chiba.

In the wake of Osim's declining health, the Japan Football Association has suggested that it was now looking for a replacement manager to be in charge of Japan, who begin their 2010 World Cup qualification campaign in February 2008. As the national team job requires long hours of travel across the Asian continent and working under extremely strenuous conditions, Osim is very unlikely to be able to continue his duty even in the improbable event of making a full recovery from his illness. On November 21, 2007, A Japan Times article reported that Takeshi Okada was a primary contender to replace the incapacitated manager[6] after a news report suggesting the appointment of Holger Osieck by the Nikkan Sports newspaper was later dismissed by Osieck himself.[7]

Pray for Osim to speak words of wisdom again


Ivica Osim, the 66-year-old coach of Japan's national soccer team, has been through painful experiences in his life, such as the breakup of his native Yugoslavia and the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Perhaps for this reason, his words are often filled with deep wisdom.

I should think that the suffering of his compatriots has left indelible marks in the soul of this great soccer coach.

A man of unflagging courage and, with a big heart, Osim has always been open to foreign cultures. According to the book "Oshimu no Kotoba" (Osim's words) by Yukihiko Kimura, Osim was once asked if his personality was shaped by his wartime experiences. "I prefer not to say so," he replied. "If I have learned my life's lessons from my wartime experiences, it would mean that war is necessary."

The civil war claimed more than 200,000 lives and destroyed the capital city of Sarajevo.

Osim was born and raised in the city, which is the setting of the 2006 film "Grbavica." (The Japanese title is Saraebo no Hana, which literally translates as Sarajevo's flower.)

Its Japan premiere is to be held soon at Tokyo's Iwanami Hall. The deeply thought-provoking film deals with the weighty subject of the systematic rape of women during the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Before he suffered a stroke earlier this month, Osim wrote a message recommending this movie. Proudly recalling his beloved hometown, he noted that it was a place where everyone could accept one another, play soccer and music, and speak words of love.

It must have pained him greatly to admit that his native land has also become like none other in world history, a place where human decency and conscience have been wiped out.

His writing is a heart-wrenching combination of deep nostalgia for his homeland and intense loathing of war.

I heard that Osim's condition warrants no optimism. In his active days on the pitch, Osim was said to be an aggressive player who only needed "an opening the size of a handkerchief" to break through defenses on three sides.

I pray that he will pull through the current crisis and speak his words of wisdom to us again. --The Asahi Shimbun, Nov. 26(IHT/Asahi: November 27,2007)


質問者が不用意に「走るサッカー」について質問すると、オシムは「サッカーで走るのは当たり前です」と切り返す。そうした場面が多々見られるよう に、試合後のオシムの記者会見や雑誌、新聞等に語られる彼の言葉は非常にウィットに富んでおり、サッカーが哲学的に語られる。ジェフ千葉時代に、それがサ ポーター間やサッカー界ばかりでなく、一般紙や教育の現場などでも評判を呼んだ。これが「オシム語録」と呼ばれるようになり、クラブの新しい名物として定 着した。

試合後の会見では、単に質問者がからかわれている場面もまま見受けられ、オシムのコメントをストレートに紙面に掲載してしまうと、その真意を伝え切 れないことになる。また、(練習場のある)市原まで取材に出かけた記者が半泣きで帰ってきた、という逸話が時々紙面に掲載されることがあったように、オシ ムは一部マスコミにとっては「インタビュアー泣かせ」の取材相手である。しかし、真摯な質問者に対するオシムの対応は、往々にして丁寧である。

J. Robert Cade, the Inventor of Gatorade


J. Robert Cade, the Inventor of Gatorade, Dies at 80

University of Florida, via Agence France-Presse — Getty Images

Chip Hinton trying J. Robert Cade's invention in 1965.

Published: November 28, 2007

J. Robert Cade, a nephrologist who mixed water, sugar, salt and cunning dashes of whatever to invent Gatorade, of which 12 million bottles are guzzled daily by electrolyte-depleted athletes, post-operative patients and the simply thirsty, died yesterday in Gainesville, Fla. He was 80.

Stephen Orlando, a spokesman for the University of Florida, announced the death.

The sports and energy drink industry — led by Gatorade and worth more than $19 billion last year, according to a British study — began with a question asked in 1965 by Dwayne Douglas, a football coach at the University of Florida: Why didn’t his players urinate after a game?

Part of the answer came quickly: football players lost so much fluid in sweat in swamplike Florida that they had none left to form urine. It took longer to explain how the loss of fluid and electrolytes affected blood pressure, body temperature and the volume of blood.

In a subbasement, Dr. Cade and his researchers then concocted a drink to rehydrate athletes, and to replenish carbohydrates, in the form of the sugars sucrose and glucose, and electrolytes (sodium and potassium salts). There was one problem.

“It didn’t taste like Gatorade,” Dr. Cade said in an interview with Florida Trend in 1988. In fact, a football player who tried it and spat it out more than hinted that it tasted like bodily waste.

Being a student of kidneys and their bodily neighborhood, Dr. Cade did a taste test, comparing his still-unnamed concoction with that golden fluid. His new product was only marginally better. Dr. Cade’s wife, Mary, suggested adding lemon juice, which helped a lot. Jim Free, a research fellow, came up with the name Gatorade.

Florida first used the new product in a game against Louisiana State University in October 1965, in 102-degree heat. The L.S.U. Tigers wilted in the second half.

In 1967, when Florida beat Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl, Bud Carson, Tech’s coach, said his team lost because they did not have Gatorade.

By 1969, Hank Stram, coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, attributed his team’s Super Bowl title to Gatorade.

The stuff became an N.F.L. ritual in 1985 when New York Giants players dumped it on Coach Bill Parcells after his team beat the Washington Redskins. Later, slick marketing gave Gatorade a lightning-bolt logo and a Michael Jordan endorsement.

Off the field, Dr. Cade faced more complicated challenges. When he first approached university officials about marketing the drink, they declined. So he sold the formula to Stokely-Van Camp. The deal gave him and his associates a cut of the royalties. A few years later, when these reached $200,000, Florida Trend said, the university noticed.

“They told me it belonged to them and all the royalties were theirs,” Dr. Cade said. “I told them to go to hell. So they sued us.”

After a 31-month legal battle, the parties settled. The product was later sold to Quaker Oats. which merged with Pepsico, and royalties continued to flow to Dr. Cade’s group and the university. He donated some of his to the university.

James Robert Cade was born in San Antonio on Sept. 26, 1927, and ran a 4:20 mile in high school. He graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and joined the University of Florida as an assistant professor in the medical college’s renal division in 1961. At his death, he was a professor emeritus of nephrology.

His other research interests included investigating a possible link between the inability to break down a specific milk protein and autism and schizophrenia. He collected Studebakers and violins, which he sometimes played with symphonies. He also invented football gear and gadgets to help polio victims.

Dr. Cade is survived by his wife, the former Mary Strasburger; his sons Michael, of Texas, and Stephen, of Gainesville; his daughters, Martha Cade, of Gainesville; Celia Cade Johnson, of Oregon; Emily Morrison of Boston; and Phoebe Miles of Washington; 20 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.

Even if Gatorade was a brilliant idea at the right time, the same cannot be said of all Mr. Cade’s brainstorms, like his fruity, alcoholic Hop’n Gator, a 1970s invention.

By Ken Gewertz

Gazette Staff

Stephen Owen, known for his work on Chinese literature as well as for
his probing and masterful comparative studies, has been named the
James Bryant Conant University Professor.

Owen's specialty is the T'ang Dynasty (618-906 A.D.), the age of the
great lyric poets, Wang Wei and Du Fu. But his scholarly reach extends
to all periods of Chinese literature and into other literatures as
well. Owen has also made his mark as a translator.

"Stephen Owen is a remarkable and versatile scholar, with a truly
exceptional sense of literary quality and an ability to help his
students and readers understand the most distinctive aspects of the
literature he teaches and writes about," said President Neil L.
Rudenstine. "His book Remembrances offers as lucid and sensitive a
reading of Chinese poetry as we are likely ever to find. Harvard is
fortunate to be able to welcome him to the ranks of University

Helen Vendler, the Kingsley Porter University Professor, known for her
criticism of 20th-century poetry, said that Owen is

"a person of indefatigable mental energy and deep poetic sensibility.
In his translations, he neither betrays what is original in the poem
nor imposes anything foreign on it. He conveys the warmth and
personality of the poem as well as its literal meaning."

Chinese History Professor Peter Bol said that Owen, "in terms of his
career and level of accomplishment, is in a class by himself.
Certainly he's the most important person in the study of Chinese
literature in the West."

Owen said that he regards the Conant Professorship as a great honor as
well as a recognition of the importance of the humanities and of East
Asian studies.

"I'm also grateful for the opportunity to think about my field more
broadly," he said. "I will continue to teach in the East Asian
department, but I am also a member of the Comparative Literature
department, and I would like to start thinking about doing more
comparative courses."

Born in St. Louis, Owen, 51, grew up in Arkansas and Maryland. His
interest in Chinese literature took root when he began to explore the
Baltimore public library as an adolescent.

"I became enamored of books of poetry and especially of Chinese poetry
in translation, and I have been ever since. I wrote poetry when I was
younger, but then I discovered that I was better at writing prose,
particularly literary criticism," he said.

Owen earned his bachelor's and doctoral degrees from Yale University.
He taught at Yale from 1972 to 1982, when he joined the Harvard
Faculty of Arts and Sciences as professor of Chinese literature.
Before becoming a University Professor, he was the Irving Babbitt
Professor of Comparative Literature and professor of Chinese.

Owen is the author of numerous articles and books on Chinese
literature and comparative literary subjects. These include:
《初唐詩》The Poetry of the Early T'ang (1977);
《盛唐詩》The Great Age of Chinese Poetry: The High T'ang (1980);
《追憶》Remembrances: The Experience of the Past in Classical Chinese
Literature (1986);
Mi-Lou: Poetry and the Labyrinth of Desire (1989).
Traditional Chinese Poetry and Poetics: An Omen of the World (1985); and

等 著作,表現出這種跨文化的詩歌閱讀,存在多麼豐富的潛力

Owen's most recent book, An Anthology of Chinese Literature (Norton &
Co., 1996), is a 1,200-page tome spanning 2,500 years. Owen translated
the hundreds of selections almost entirely himself, in addition to
writing the notes and critical introductions.

University Professorships are awarded to "individuals of distinction
not definitely attached to any particular department." The special
category of professorships was created in 1935, and today, they are
held by 14 Harvard faculty members.

In 1974, the Harvard Corporation established the James Bryant Conant
University Professorship to honor Harvard's 23rd president, who held

神様仏様、稲尾様私の履歴書 (日経ビジネス人文庫)


  提到稻尾最神的傳說,自然是1958年日本總冠軍賽,接在三連敗後連勝四場的奇蹟 大逆轉!第一戰、第三戰都被三原監督推上火線的稻尾雖然2連敗,但第四戰以後場場出賽,合計共出賽6場,5場先發。稻尾更在第五戰於十局下擊出再見全壘 打,成為日職史上首位打出再見全壘打的投手!
  當西鐵贏了當年日本職棒總冠軍之後,地方新聞遂以"神様 仏様 稲尾様"來讚頌稻尾驚人的表現, 現已成為與稻尾和久本人不可分割的形容詞。過度燃燒手臂,造成漁夫之子,從小體格鍛練得極佳的稻尾職業生涯也只有短暫的8年。退休後歷任西鐵、羅德等隊監 督。後轉任專職棒球評論家,並長期擔任澤村賞選考委員。



 「神様、仏様、稲尾様」と称賛されて鉄腕の異名をとり、プロ野球・西鉄ライオンズの黄金期を担った稲尾和久(いなお・かずひさ)さんが13日午前1時 21分、悪性腫瘍(しゅよう)のため福岡市内の病院で死去した。70歳だった。通夜、密葬は親族のみで行い、告別式は22日午後2時から福岡市中央区古小 烏町70の1の積善社福岡斎場で。喪主は妻律子さん。




 58年には33勝でリーグ3連覇に貢献。この年の巨人との日本シリーズでは、チーム3連敗後、自らが4連勝して逆転優勝の立役者となった。第5戦では打 者として延長10回、日本シリーズ初となるサヨナラ本塁打を放っており、投打の活躍は「神様、仏様、稲尾様」とたたえられた。

 そのほか、プロ14年間で輝かしい実績を残した。1年目から8年連続で20勝以上を挙げ、61年には、戦前のスタルヒン(巨人)に並ぶ シーズン最多42勝をマーク。最多勝を4度、最優秀防御率を5度、獲得した。通算成績は276勝137敗、防御率1.98。93年に野球殿堂入りした。

Professor Ray Dolan

Cognition & emotion

Professor Dolan's research interests include the mechanisms of encoding and retrieval of episodic (autobiographical) memory and the neural organisation of human emotion.

In addition to demonstrating the differential involvement of the right and left prefrontal cortex at encoding and retrieval respectively we have also demonstrated that these applications reflect the engagement of specific executive processes at these stages.

The focus of our present work is to define the sub-processes that are operative during optimal encoding and retrieval of episodic memory. We are also studying the interaction of prefrontal and hippocampal regions, as a function of time, during encoding.

In studies of emotion our focus has been on fear using paradigms that involve processing of facial stimuli. From a theoretical point of view we distinguish between innate and acquired fear. We have shown that innate fear involves activation of the amygdala; acquired fear in response to salient visual stimuli involves an increased connectivity between the visual thalamus and amygdala.

Our on-going work involves exploring the neural mechanisms engaged during the covert and unconscious activation of a fear system.

Daring You to Try This at Home (November 4, 2007)

Jerry Garrett for The New York Times

Chip Foose and the 1954 Ford his crew was rebuilding.

THE clock was rapidly approaching midnight last Monday when 50 members of the Brazilian news media arrived, unannounced, at the “Overhaulin’” television show’s set outside the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association trade show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “We wish to see Chip Foose,” one of the members said to a security officer. The guard went inside the tent that housed the set, and a few minutes later Mr. Foose appeared and politely welcomed them inside. The amiable Mr. Foose admitted to having some trouble telling people no.

“How do you guys know me?” Mr. Foose asked.

“Subtitles,” shouted a man in the back of the scrum. “‘Overhaulin’’ runs on Sao Paolo television with subtitles.”

That’s nothing, said Peter McGillivray, SEMA’s vice president of marketing and communications. In Mexico, he said, the show, on which older cars are picked at random for a full-body makeover, features an actor dramatically over-dubbing Mr. Foose’s voice in Spanish. The program’s network, Discovery Channel, distributes it worldwide.

“Chip Foose, in a lot of ways, is our worldwide ambassador for this industry,” Mr. McGillivray said. “When I met with Emerson Fittipaldi, the Formula One champion, in Rio recently, the first thing he asked me — the very first thing — was, ‘Do you know Chip Foose?’ People ask about him everywhere we go.”

Mr. Foose is, arguably, the closest thing the auto industry has to a design superstar. Increasingly, he plays a major role in setting the tone at this annual extravaganza for aftermarket parts companies, industry executives, dealers, buyers and journalists.

The show has the attention of the mainstream auto industry, which has begun using SEMA to introduce production vehicles — for example, Toyota’s showing of its 2009 Corolla and Matrix models. SEMA officials estimated that more than 100,000 people would attend the show, where auto industry engineers, dreamers and backyard mechanics display new ideas, extreme creations and envelope-pushing customizations.

The SEMA show is an idea farm, and no one seems to have more fertile ideas than Mr. Foose. From a design standpoint, SEMA is very much “The Chip Foose Show.” AutoWeek magazine describes the million-plus square feet of show floor here as “Foosetopia.”

Google the words “Foose” and “SEMA” and you will get more than 193,000 hits.

Last year, Mr. Foose had at least 30 vehicles on display, which SEMA characterized as a record for a single individual. This year, organizers were unsure of the total number of Foose-designed vehicles here, but they conceded he had more than exhibitors with the next highest totals: the Ford Motor Company with 25 and General Motors with 28.

The show opened on Monday, as Mr. Foose and his sleep-deprived band of helpers started a marathon five-day, round-the-clock “live build” of a 1954 Ford in their combination tent, studio and theater. The car started as a dowdy four-door sedan and was destined to end up as a swank two-door convertible by the time the show closed on Friday.

When the show re-opened early Tuesday morning, after his midnight visit from the Brazilians, Mr. Foose presided over the introduction of a 1,000-horsepower propane-powered 1970 Chevelle street rod he had designed. Twenty minutes later, Mr. Foose was at the Ford pavilion showing his design of a Ford Flex concept car. Just a few feet behind Mr. Foose at the Ford display was a long line of life-size models of Hot Wheels toy cars come to life, including a far-out surf van designed by (are you spotting a trend here?) Mr. Foose.

Even vehicles on display here that have not been designed by Mr. Foose tend to look as if he had at least influenced them.

In addition to SEMA, Mr. Foose has also been working on nonautomotive industrial designs, including a Detroit hotel and casino complex.

So when does Mr. Foose sleep?

“I made a New Year’s resolution this year to get at least a little sleep each night,” he said in an interview. “I managed to do pretty well on that resolution, except for a couple of missed nights, until ‘Overhaulin’ ’ went back on the air last month.” He said that when he finally got some sleep last Saturday night, “I had been up since Tuesday.”

Mr. Foose’s “Overhaulin’,” which was a backdrop to the SEMA show, was just the show within the show. A record 2,000 vendors participated this year and more than 2,200 products were introduced.

“It has grown to truly international in scope,” Mr. McGillivray said. “Our first year, back in 1967, we had 98 vendors, and all of them came from the same ZIP code.”

At least 30 countries were represented this year and that includes more than 100 Chinese aftermarket vendors.

Nevertheless, SEMA retains its all-American character.

“I still maintain that our show is the largest collection of U.S. manufacturers you will find in any industry, at any trade show, anywhere in the world,” Mr. McGillivray said.

And, despite a widening presence at SEMA of the major automakers, and superstars like Mr. Foose, Carroll Shelby, and a variety of entertainers, like the rapper 50 Cent, Mr. McGillivray said, “SEMA is still about the little guys.”

Indeed, for a relatively modest amount of money, in some cases a few hundred dollars, just about anyone can rent booth space. Mr. McGillivray told a story about a man he met last year here. “He was down and out. He had lost everything in a divorce. He was living in his car. But then he got this idea, after seeing some motocross riders trying to load their bikes in the back of their pickups. And he built this ladder-type ramp. He rented a booth here last year, and this year he has contracted with Toyota for it, and his ramp is on display at the Toyota booth.”

There were more Horatio Alger stories in this still-young industry. Even Mr. Foose told how, when he was 14 years old, the movie director Ridley Scott saw some of his early sketches for futuristic vehicles.

“Mr. Scott said, ‘I want to use these,’ ” Mr. Foose recalled, “ ‘in a movie I’m making called “Blade Runner.” ’ ”



馬洪氏死去 中国の経済学者

2007年11月8日 13時18分

 馬 洪氏(ば・こう=中国の経済学者)新華社電によると、10月28日、北京で死去、87歳。山西省出身。病気療養中だった。  1980年代に「社会主義商品経済」理論を提唱、中国の進める社会主義市場経済の理論的基礎を築いた。79年に中国政府のシンクタンク、社会科学院副院 長。同院長、国務院(政府)副秘書長、国務院発展研究センター主任などを務め、93年から同センター名誉主任。(北京、共同)

文匯報報道,在中國老一輩經濟學家中,馬洪是為數不多的進行跨學科研究並取得全面成就的學者。他較早提出和支持“社會主義商品經濟”和“社會主義市場經 濟”論點,主張穩健地推動中國經濟發展,在剖析中國經濟結構的弊端、建立合理經濟結構的理論研究與對策研究中做出了重要貢獻,在2005年獲得首屆中國經 濟學獎。

  馬洪還被稱為是朱鎔基的伯樂以及上世紀80年代政府重要的經濟智囊。1977年底,馬洪在參與中國社科院組建工作時,將在河北廊坊石油工廠工 作的朱鎔基調到社科院工業經濟所,並為其恢復中共黨籍;而且在上世紀80年代,馬洪先後在中國社科院、國務院發展研究中心這兩個中國最重要的智囊機構擔任 要職。

河上肇 Kawakami Hajime

前幾天讀 Kawakami Hajime 記一些難忘的人物 (包括如實寫他1941年從東京転居京都時的一位老友之絕交)
他的政經作品半世紀多多之前就有翻譯呢 (1920年,又分别以《贫乏论》和《救贫丛谈》两种中译本,在中国出版。)


另外 gossip:".....一九四三年,李登輝赴日本留學,就讀于日本共產主義思潮最盛行的京都帝國大學。京都帝國大學經濟部有一位在日本經濟學術界非常出名的教授河上肇,經常宣揚共產主義左傾思想,因而孕育了許多日本左派青年。

戰爭時期,日本當局查禁社會主義思潮,壓制共產黨組織活動,可謂不遺餘力。京都帝大的河上肇教授因經常宣揚社會主義思想,引起日本政府當局極度不滿。河上 肇教授于一九三二年間,被日本警察逮捕,日本共產黨組織也在一九三三年前後全部覆滅。雖然河上肇被捕入獄,共產黨組織也全部遭政府當局破獲,但是,他的學 生遍及京都帝大和日本社會各個階層,日本學術圈左派勢力終難完全禁絕。李登輝到京都帝大就讀時,河上肇教授雖已被捕入獄,但是受河上肇影響的青年知識分子 無遠弗屆。在日本知識界,因此殘留了不少早先他所傳播的共產主義思潮。大學課堂上,師生之間盛行議論社會主義理論,盛況歷久不墜。........ 在《台灣的主張》一書末尾,李登輝特意將“日本共產黨台灣民族支部成立”列入年表的內容中(一九二八年項下)。身為台灣的“總統”、台灣國民黨的黨主席,李登輝何以不將國民黨重要節日放在年表當中,反而會將“日本共產黨民族支部”的成立納入他年表大事記中?......"

Wikipedia 英日簡短說明

Kawakami Hajime (Japanese: 河上肇), October 20, 1879 - January 30, 1946, was a Japanese Marxist economist of the Taishō and early Shōwa periods.

Born in Yamaguchi, he graduated from Tokyo University. After writing for Yomiuri shimbun, he earned an economics professorship in Kyoto Imperial University. Increasingly inclined toward Marxism, in 1928, he took part in the March 15 incident, and was expelled from the university as a subversive. The following year, he joined the formation of a political party Shinrōtō. Kawakami went on to publish a Marxist-oriented economics journal, Studies of Social Problems. After joining the then-outlawed Communist Party of Japan, he was arrested in 1933 and sent to prison. Following his release in 1937, he translated Das Kapital from German into Japanese. Kawakami spent the remainder of his life writing essays, novels, poetry, and the autobiography Jijoden.
