Fascinating look at dematerialization - the amount of resources extracted per dollar of GDP decreased by nearly 75% over the past 90 years
Today we use far fewer materials to get the same things done—a phenomenon known as dematerialization. But, paradoxically, this efficiency has only driven up overall consumption.

Odd, traditionally, the Chinese would count this as the first day of Spring, too. Enjoy.
 
Today is Imbloc...the first day of spring in the Celtic calendar. We are halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. When I was in Ireland it was celebrated as the Feast of St. Brigid, not so much here in the states. I made some Brigid's Crosses from the cattails down at the lake on my hike this morning to celebrate and tonight we will definitely have a fire in the fireplace. Hope everyone is enjoying the season.

“I can't believe it lasted this long,” said “US Ambassador to the UN” Susan Rice, laughing, “Who would really believe that there is this magical agency that would, like, be responsible for solving all the problems in the whole world? That nobody else can solve? Or even wants to?” ...

This is awesome. Kevin Vallier blogs the economics of Westros. 
I’ve decided to write a bit about some of the political and economic questions raised in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, which I love and have just finished re-reading. You may be wondering why such a topic would be appropriate for Bleeding Heart Libertarians, but you shouldn’t. If you…
