What we learned this week

  • How to make trillions of dollars – a great piece on consumerism. “I must say that I don’t recommend that you do this” warns David Cain. “Aspiring to trillions is the domain of the wicked alone and we won’t be able to be friends any more.”
  • If current trends continue, next year the number of people in Africa with a mobile phone will overtake the number of people who are literate.
