In terms of personal statment, does it matter if you write about reading the pop-economics books, like Freakonomics, The Undercover Economist? (I'm not talking about those specifically...)
Also, I'm reading books on globalisation and China, and other areas...and I'm really not sure which to mention on my PS...I'm interested in all of them: is it fine if I mention around three different topics which I'm interested in, i.e. Globalisation, Politics and Economics in China, Markets...? Or is it too much?
