"Indeed, it seems ironic that students in an introductory economics course at Harvard feel that by walking out of their completely optional lecture taught by a famous economist on the theme of income inequality feel that their actions ought to be considered a sign of solidarity with the Occupy movement." Ok, so arguing with the ideas expressed in introductory economics classes is akin to arguing with the ideas expressed in an algebra class, except that you might have more luck proving that algebra is politically biased.

I have a few thoughts about the U.S. hates futbol. Spoiler: It has nothing to do with that Rodney Dangerfield movie.

Oh yeah, I also kind of dislike that there are draws... I understand equal match ups, etc. but if you're not going to fight to win, then why play the game? Like I've heard someone say "you play to win the game"

thanks for the input! I've decided to try blogger again, if only be because I'm more familiar with it.

If: Knowledge = Power, Time = Money, and power = work/time, then knowledge = work/money. So money = work/knowledge. Regardless of how much you work, money approaches infinity as knowledge approaches 0

Does gravity really exist? Or are objects attracted to each other due to economies of agglomeration? Discuss
