the G20 meeting agenda

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

first, a vocabulary fix: “stand out from the crowd”: this applies only if you belong for the moment to an uneducated the crowd; if the crowd is educated, you want to belong to it; whatever your status is, this expression is a bootstrap proposal. “market knows better”: If A can’t predict B, then of course […]

a social benefit of limiting total individual wealth

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

I was arguing a few days ago that adding to your State’s Constitution a provision which limits the total wealth of a person to the necessary for a human lifetime would naturally limit corruption or criminality.
