Deflation is an increase in the purchasing power of a currency, whereas inflation is a decrease in the purchasing power of a currency.

Domestic/import markets are benefited by deflation in the form of increased purchasing power increased value of savings in the long run, but are hurt by inflation in the form of greater real debt and decreased domestic investment. International/export markets are hurt by deflation by decreased export sales and decreased foreign investment.

Domestic/import markets are hurt by inflation in the form of decreased purchasing power and decreased value of savings in the long run, but are benefited by inflation in the form of less real debt and increased domestic investment. International/export markets are benefited by increased export sales and increased foreign investment.

Of course as always, these impacts depend on closed world (ceteris paribus) conditions which hold all other variables constant.

+Liza Persson A long while ago you asked me to source my claim that Big Pharma was routinely running biased and distorted studies to prove their drugs worked better than they did, overestimating their benefits while underestimating, downplaying or even disregarding harmful side-effects. I was not able to provide you with a good source then, but this book, by Bad Science columnist Ben Goldacre, is precisely that. He is a physician, psychiatrist, academic, science writer, research fellow (at the Institute of Psychiatry in London, at Nuffield College, Oxford, and in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), and founder of the AllTrials campaign to require open science practices in clinical trials. He previously authored the book "Bad Science" (2008), a critique of alternative medicine, so I think you'll find his critique of Big Pharma (2012) to be objective, or at the very least nonpartisan ;)

Here is an excerpt: "Drugs are tested by the people who manufacture them, in poorly designed trials, on hopelessly small numbers of weird, unrepresentative patients, and analysed using techniques which are flawed by design, in such a way that they exaggerate the benefits of treatments. Unsurprisingly, these trials tend to produce results that favour the manufacturer. When trials throw up results that companies don't like, they are perfectly entitled to hide them from doctors and patients, so we only ever see a distorted picture of any drug's true effects. Regulators see most of the trial data, but only from early on in a drug's life, and even then they don't give this data to doctors or patients, or even to other parts of government. This distorted evidence is then communicated and applied in a distorted fashion. In their forty years of practice after leaving medical school, doctors hear about what works through ad hoc oral traditions, from sales reps, colleagues or journals. But those colleagues can be in the pay of drug companies – often undisclosed – and the journals are too. And so are the patient groups. And finally, academic papers, which everyone thinks of as objective, are often covertly planned and written by people who work directly for the companies, without disclosure."

Princess of Zion may quite possibly be my favorite song by Savant ever! Be certain to listen to this song with headphones or speakers with good bass! :D

I don't see why people prefer the unmastered version. It's just like the old one, except thinner.

Standard deviation is a surprisingly easy formula to comprehend and remember. Just find the mean, subtract it from all the numbers in the set, square the results, find the mean of the sum of the squared numbers, and square root it. It sounds a bit complicated but after a couple problems it becomes second nature ;)

If anyone is wondering about my present political philosophy, I'm a left-libertarian, leaning towards Agorism, Mutualism, and market socialism.

If you think you hate poetry, read Aristotle's "Poetics". Depending on why you hate poetry, you will either have a newfound love of poetry, or hate it far more. Aristotle breaks down to it's most basic elements, then explains these elements exhaustively (and by exhaustively I mean I am falling asleep even reading it aloud!)

I have never seen an analysis of poetry as disturbingly comprehensive as this, and hope I won't ever have to again. On one hand, I have gained a great many insights into the structure, form, character, substance, and art of poetry; on the other I have been cursed with an excessively analytical explanation of poetry that, at the very least, makes me despise Aristotle (the pompous prick!) and the hateful breed of poetry he depicts.

Bright side: it's a quick read, I read half the book casually in just under 2 hours)

To all concerned: being resolved in my opinion and passionate in the expressive thereof does not mean I think I know better than others, that I think my opinions are more valid or authoritative, or that I think anyone else's opinions are less correct or important than mine.

I don't see the point in being politically correct and prefacing every statement with "I think" or "in my opinion" or "it is my belief" etc. I should not need to attach these disclaimers to my words to prevent people from wrongfully assuming in their absence that I am arrogant, narcissistic, self-centered, or have a god-complex.

Having a strong opinion and defending that opinion resolutely is not intrinsically characteristic of any of these things, so I would appreciate it if my friends and acquaintances didn't perpetrate such cynical and slanderous assumptions. -

"With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day."

Story

I creatively express myself using any resources at my disposal
Introduction
My interests: philosophy, research, social theory, developmental psychology, alternative medicine, communication technology, computer science/engineering, creative expression, poetry, novelism, journalism, autodidactism, spirituality, world religion, cultural analysis/anthropology, linguistics, mysticism, game theory, macroeconomics, AI theory, fringe science, quantum physics, sex magic, social dynamics, filmmaking, photography, market research, free/open-source software development models, Linux, cloud computing, stock/currency/equities trading, smart houses, self-driving cars, environmentalism, evolution, the societal underworld/black market....just to name a few ;)

I hope to better streamline my Google+ content in the future, but for now, these are some of my interests. You can be certain that the vast majority of the content I have posted, and will post fall under that list, and thus will give you a pretty good idea of whether I'm worth following or not ^_^

I am a free-thinking, life-loving creative expressionist, and there are few things I love more than to inspire and be inspired by the whole of the world. I believe in living a life of Oneness manifested through Selfless Love, and it is my mission to find a way to get rid of all the selfishness in the world, along with the misunderstandings, prejudices, and misled self-righteousness that it fuels. http://about.me/nspyraishn
Bragging rights
I have published over 3500 pages of writing, authored dozens of poems, and drafted two fiction novels. I also have in-depth knowledge of a variety of academic topics (including philosophy, psychology, information technology, Web 2.0, Linux, UI design, futurism, world religion, and the liberal arts). To top it off, I'm an accomplished psychic and diviner, but I won't expect you to take my word for it on that one.

Orange Coast is a decent community college with an impressive faculty, but its quality of education is curtailed by mediocre management, sub-par curricula, and a depressing absence of passion for education. When I first arrived at Orange Coast, it seemed to be one of the best community colleges out there- they had a relatively prestigious history, efficient transfer programs, and were well-connected with higher education and employment institutions. But these benefits have turned out to be mostly fluff, as they lack the robust educational programs to prepare the students for these opportunities. If you are a self-learner and don't need a strong social network to propel your education, Orange Coast is bursting with opportunities. Their textbooks aren't pretty, but the library is rich is academic treasures that can fill the gap of their failing curricula. If you're looking for excellent job-preparation programs, Orange Coast is one of the best-connected and vocationally-oriented colleges I've seen, and will amply prepare you for a $15/hour job to get you by. But if you're looking for a real college that provides a comprehensive and in-depth education, Orange Coast is not the correct choice. This college may be good when it comes to certificates and job training, but it's a bad choice for anyone looking for anything beyond an Associate's degree.

Today I went to Subway to order a BLT foot-long with avocado, and a soft drink. I ordered the sandwich with everything but onions, bell peppers, and cucumbers. My experience there was the best I've ever had of a fast food place: *Their service was extremely efficient, quick, and accurate. *They put in everything I wanted, and asked to verify if I wanted oil/vinegar, salt/pepper (which I did). *They were very courteous and professional *The food was fresh, and the portions (particularly of bacon and avocado) were generous and aesthetically-pleasing. If every person working at that Subway was as good as the man serving me was, This is definitely a Subway you gotta order food from, should you be in the area!
