Daily Reading #340

Definitely end-of-an-era behaviors :


Sad world when nobody thinks that the wars we are waging are important enough to think about :


I have read 100s of articles about the structural problems in the economy, predictions of failure.  I don’t read that many as I know the financial system will fail because it has not been designed to be fail-safe. It is a complex, evolving system, so you can’t predict when, although it certainly looks closer to a market collapse than a market recovery or even gentle slow-down. I think the market high is behind us :



More social change. I am not as optimistic about self-driving cars by 2025, but someday that technology will indeed change things. Here is a hypothesis :

Good, another revived species :


Monarchs continue to decline. Very bad, Monsanto is a shit company :


Plasma collection is a big business :


Hollywood’s centralization was a death sentence, no industry survives that. The bad thing about the Hollywood film business imploding is that they will spread through the economy. We don’t deserve that :
