I have always loved economics and markets. Now that we are a global economy, it makes life even that more interesting. Instead of losing a bunch of money in the markets based on what some stupid US managers are doing, I can now lose it based on what someone in some foriegn land is up to.
Meanwhile, I caught wind of this Professor Marshall Van Alstyne over at Boston University, and what he was saying about solving the spam problem. He put a market forces spin on things, and I just had to listen and comment.
