How to give a nice non-sciencey speech

<t>Here is a good agenda for such speech on crisis and derivatives IMHO:1. Primary reason: Cheap money by Greenspan ('flood' of cheap money). This 'flood' went into housing and created a bubble.2. Additional reason: lack of regulation in mortgages, which caused sub-prime mortgages. It exacerbated th...

Rodrik's "impossibility theorem"

<t>QuoteSometimes simple and bold ideas help us see more clearly a complex reality that requires nuanced approaches. I have an "impossibility theorem" for the global economy that is like that. It says that democracy, national sovereignty and global economic integration are mutually incompatible: we ...

Homo Economicus

<r>QuoteOriginally posted by: PolterI'm not sure we actually disagree. At the outset, there isn't necessarily anything wrong with taking prices mechanism and relating it to a preference relation, especially nothing inconsistent with rationality of thus obtained preferences. It might of course depend...

Homo Economicus

Polter, after some thinking I guess I disagree with you ...We already have a functional that is complete and transitive. And this mechanism is called prices. Why do you still need something more? You can just maximize your wealth at each instant.What do you think?

Homo Economicus

Nice post, Polter ...Here is my big-picture view about Utility function1. Short-term optimization -- utility maximization2. Long-term optimization -- equilibrium3. Technologies shift -- don't know exactly; smth like energy's decrease in a system (in the physical sense, like gravitation)

The most foolish theorem ever...

<t>You, guys, can continue to believe in that M&M nonsense. But as I said before this "foolish" theorem is destroying the very fabric of sound economy. As a rule, companies should be financed through equity and not debt.I am better to finish here. Don't want to continue arguing with "charlatans....
