Weekend reading

Just three items.

Elanah Uretsky has a very nice piece in The National Interest on yingchou (应酬), the merry-go-round of Chinese male bonding culture involving smoking, drinking and sex, and the health and family consequences.

Mohammed Hanif does a reasonable job of explaining the recent Pakistan election featuring Imran Khan (very rich) and Nawaz Sharif (much richer) contesting leadership of their very poor homeland.

And the FT has a nice graphic with click throughs showing the biggest real estate developments in central London.
