Anything but water

  1. China's economic miracle began with 18 farmers who decided to exchange their collective poverty for individual wealth.

  2. This app will reduce junk mail in your mailbox.

  3. How airlines make fat profits from distortions in the EU's carbon emissions scheme (and how the EU is trying to prevent its collapse).

  4. Game theory applied to the US presidential election (and why Romney may not win the nomination).

  5. As I sit in my HUGE new apartment, I am not thinking much about "consume less," but this excellent podcast does a great job of exploring the conundrum of energy efficiency = more energy use. Why? Because the demand curve slopes down (price falls, consumption rises).
