A few months ago a friend sent me the following lines by the Italian comedian Beppe Grillo: ‘For a long time Italians have been in a [political] coma. We are always in search of the lesser evil. In fact, we should construct a monument for the “lesser evil”. A huge monument in the middle of Rome’.

Indeed the principle of the ‘lesser ...
The first known public exhibition of projected sound films took place in Paris in 1900, but decades would pass before sound motion pictures were made commercially practical. Reliable synchronization was difficult to achieve with the early sound-on-disc systems, and amplification and recording quality were also inadequate.

Executives have spoken their minds about the worlds most effective recruitment tool: its money. According to a survey of 677 job seekers in the $100k+ market conducted by executive job search service, 84% would prefer a salary increase to a bump up in title. Marking a departure from the boom time of the late 1990s, when it was common for new employees to be lured with the promise of a fast-track title (however contrived some of those titles may have sounded), executives in todays market are far more interested in tangible compensation. The executives participating in survey were asked: Youve just ... market research, surveys and trends

What happened to comparative advantage? | Ask MetaFilter
is talking about global competition. Maybe it's no surprise that non-economists are concerned with "offshoring" of manufacturing jobs, but even people like Robert Reich who are ostensibly familiar with the issues are talking like nation-states are competing "teams" who are trying to beat one another rather than trading to mutual advantage. So my question is: what's up with that? Has the theory of comparative advantage been generally discredited and/or have conditions changed since its original exposition? Are countries struggling to reduce its effects to conform to some ideal of competition that they can win? It ...
