American dreaming

Yes, perhaps some older culture had dreams, but the American variety has played top-dollar in the media age of print and broadcast (what about in the new media?).

Well, we do have will which comes into play in the continued resolution of this recurring question (essentially, quasi-empirical at the core): we cannot do it or we do not want to do it. Of course, we could add much more: we do not know how to do it but can learn, we do not know what we do not know, ...

Earlier posts related to financial gaming and its effects which discussions will continue.

As a little comic aside, following Kelly-Bootle, recently, a Money & Happiness article by Laura Rowley tells a little tale that is very much apropos. If only it could be funny.


03/15/2013 -- Some controversy in the way SPR fired some people. See Weagle.

03/15/2011 -- The M & Ms are apropos.

11/30/2009 -- No one climbs above our neuropeptidergic limitations.

09/02/2009 -- The supposedly best-and-brightest have led us on a perdition-directed path through mis-using mathematics and computation.

05/18/2009 -- Oh yes, got us in a mess and still wants the bonus.

07/29/2008 -- Study continues on the etiology of the current mess. As there is much to catch up on, no time line has been established.

06/16/2008 -- Yes, some gimmick always seems to come forward to beat the market. MPT needs to remember about quasi-empiricism and black swans, due, in part, to the unfairness of the game.
