Lowy Institute

Bird flu 'could take 142m lives' -

Do you get the feeling that we are living in the first chapter of a bad science fiction novel?

I don't know anything about the Lowy Institute, (good credentials?) but it is probably fair to say that when a bunch of economist boffins get the larger institute's sanction to write about the economic implications of the bird flu, you just have to sit up and take notice.

I mean, if some level headed economists want to expend resources doing this study, it must be serious!
