Science Fiction can do the strangest things to your mind.

In 1976 I read The Screwing of the Average Man by David Hapgood.  That book made so much sense it was scary and I concluded there was something wrong with what I was taught about economics in college.  So I decided to read Samuelson's ECONOMICS to find what was wrong and do it cover to cover if I had to.  What I found is that our economists ignore Demand Side Depreciation.  Throw away lots of cars, they never get subtracted from anywhere.  Who cares?

But in 1977 John Kenneth Galbraith produced a series about economics for the BBC.  When Milton Friedman heard about it then he had to have one.  Galbraith blew Friedman away.  Galbraith was informative, Friedman came across as a propagandist.

But things were different then.  In 77 the world population had only recently passed 4 billion.  Now we are approaching 8 billion.  We are free to be dumb until the planet is totally screwed up.  Neither of them suggested mandatory accounting in our schools.

Do Milton Friedman and John Kenneth Galbraith debate in that great economics department in the sky? Both men died in 2006, after remarkably long and distinguished careers as two of the most widely read economists of the 20th century, yet I can only with great difficulty imagine them ever agreeing.

Thursday Sept 22, 1966

1967 was the first year of Star Trek and it is synchronous with 2017.

This was the 2nd pilot, the 1st did not have William Shatner.

The genetic engineering people should find this interesting:

Who stole the DNA of 14,000 long-lived Italians?

https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/16/who-stole-the-dna-of-14-000-long-lived-italians/

Sounds like Robert Heinlein's Methuselah's Children.

Science Fiction gets real AGAIN! LOL
