Coming soon

I haven't posted anything because I'm working on a paper relating long run Nash equilibrium, altruism and upsetting or maintaining the status-quo and its effects on international relations and policy. Stay tuned.

In the spirit of finals I should say this: The 25 page research paper not started is an infinitely longer task than the 25 page research paper started.

Advisors and Regulators

One has to assume that if economic/financial advisors and regulators really understood what was going on, they wouldn't be advisors or regulators. It's not that they aren't smart enough. It's a lack of confidence in humanity. It's about making money or doing the right thing. If these two always occured in conjunction with each other then our advisors and regulators would be rich and our bank executives poor. Pick your battles but don't tell me somebody getting paid any less than $100k a year actually knows what's going on.
