Where would we be without Ricardo surfing the net for our amusement and edification? Where does he find the time? It takes me long enough to look at all the links he sends...

That's a good watch. Nothing really to do with cars etc. but well worth the time.

Wonderful - thank you 

Lovely to see people learning and understanding from our roots rather than the endless exploitation

That's brilliant RDV. A cross-disciplinarian glimpse into some of the profound places where economic thinking might lead if it were run by actual bright people instead of dimbulb toadies tasked with composing ad hoc “theories” to support whatever policies the ultrarich prefer. The “science” of economics is perhaps dismal not because of the maths or anything inherent to the discipline, but because it is as practiced intellectually stunted and dishonest. Because it is indeed as practiced nothing like a science at all.
