What to watch as we wait for the double-dip recession

Prieur du Plessis points to an excellent clear summary of why we will NOT have a double dip recession.

And he identifies what I am watching as we hold our breath for the next bubble to burst. I want to know where all the free cash sitting in big companies is going to go.

Where is the next increase in productivity? Which are the vibrant interesting sectors that we want to be in?

Do you need to say more than this poet?

“You learn that you don’t know everything, it’s not your job to save the world and that you can’t teach a pig to sing. You learn that the only cross to bear is the one you choose to carry and that martyrs get burned at the stake.”

Does Google make us stupid?

Is Nicholas Carr right? Does Google make us stupid?

I’ll wait for hard evidence but until we get it, I can explain why some people think so.

And I have a grand link to an explanation why the internet improves our manners!

What do your expletives do for you?

My expletives are better than yours!

Yup, I truly suspect they are. Some expletives encourage a downward spiral of despondency to the pit where we see one negative event as “personal, persistent, and pervasive”.

Others say it like it as, but help us swoop upwards away. We don’t leave the irritating behind. We encourage them to play with this but on more equal terms.
