Adam Smith’s Prediction Of The Decline Produced By Unproductive Hands


بالكربون (via الفاتح جبرا)

تبدأ الحكاية كالعادة بالتساؤل المبكر .. رمضان شهر كم؟ (ثم) .. رمضان فضل ليهو كم شهر؟ تكون الإجابة : زي شهرين كده .. (ثم) زى إسبوعين كده .. تبدأ أسعار السلع الضرورية في الإرتفاع ويختفي (السكر) إذ يجد بعض التجار في هذا الشهر الفضيل فرصة لتنظيف جيوب المواطنين (الخالية) ! من أجل إكتناز الأموال (الحرام) ثم يصومون بعد ذلك رمضان إيماناً وإحتسابا تقرباً إلى الله الذى يعلم خائنة الأعين وما تخفي الصدور. وبعد أن يستعد الجميع لمقابلة الشهر الكريم يبدأ السؤال … Read More

Sudan: You’ve Been Intellectually Served (via The Sudanese Optimist)

I have recently stumbled upon a quote by Saul Alinsky, and read it way too many times until I finally decided I should probably share it. I find this quote incredibly succinct for the profoundly complex issues it addresses– “Not at any time. I’ve never joined any organization—not even the ones I’ve organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it’s Christian … Read More

A Greek Tragedy-Farce In Economics (via Grantcoulson’s Blog)

     Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives.     The postal union in Canada is staging rotating strikes. So far, no one has noticed. It’s long past the day of special treatment of government workers.

Adam Smith And Altruism With A Dash Of Cooperation (via Grantcoulson’s Blog)

              Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives.        The world, apparently, will now end on October 21.

To mock or not to mock (via Liam’s Blog)

What matter most not now or what ever happen.Are we ready .To live everyday as a precious and valuable.Work hard to accept our fate as humans and worthy enough to preserve our planet.

So today is judgment day, and I have mixed feelings.

To Mock I truly think that the guys who think they’ve calculated the rapture, and the thousands who have given up their homes, jobs, and wasted thousands of dollars on this are a few sandwiches short of a picnic. And I very much want myself, my chu … Read More

I wonder if they know what snow looks like? (via Stone crumbles…)

I wonder if they know what snow looks like? Look at me not actually writing anything again… but pictures are pretty, right? These are a few shots from the Florida trip I crashed with my friend's family (well, I was invited – to clarify) during 'Reading Week' (AKA the equivalent of Spring Break in February where you are supposed to catch up on homework… or you can go to Disneyland and Hogwarts). A little pink with the skies opening… can you hear the chorus? How f***ing adorable, right … Read More

American Sauce: What's the point in Afghanistan now? (via CNN Political Ticker)

Capitol Hill (CNN) — On Capitol Hill, the end of Osama bin Laden is opening up a new chapter in the debate over the war he sparked. (See what Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Indiana, told CNN over the weekend here.) This week, American Sauce burrows into the basic and slippery question of "what is the mission in Afghanistan?" You'll hear a difference between how Presidents Bush and Obama described the objectives and how the military in Afghanistan outline … Read More
