I've just finished Part One.

Should we organize a discussion thread based on each Part? Maybe even each chapter?

Where is everybody else?

This is precisely the type of senseless, anti-entrepreneurial and innovation killing regulation that Charles Murray contemplates we fight back against in his new book (http://www.amazon.com/People-Rebuilding-Liberty-Without-Permission/dp/0385346514/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1432237315&sr=1-1). 

Also, kudos to editors of The Wall Street Journal's opinion page for the great Homer allusion in the headline of this piece.  
Jim Dyke Jr. writes that his winery aged wine at the bottom of the ocean—then the feds threatened its license.

More on Zappos's holacratic revolution.

I wrote about holacracy last week on my blog (http://somethingireadtoday.blogspot.com/2015/05/holacracy-in-america.html). This corporate libertarianism is certainly very interesting, although I do share some of the concerns of the employees who decided to leave after the introduction of holacracy. Chiefly, I'm confused as to how pay is determined under the system. Traditional management hierarchies are abandoned, I know, but how are wages, salaries and promotions (do they even exist?) apportioned under a holacratic system?

At any rate, it's certainly a story worth following if you're into business and finance. 
After quirky online retailer Zappos adopted a boss-free, no-titles ‘self-management’ system, more than 200 workers decided it wasn’t for them.
