Greg Mankiw's Blog: Prof Dan Ariely's Crazy Hypothesis -- BDSM

Pardoned on your wallet – tyranny gasoline - finally we all know we are enslaved by the master, we hate it but we can not live without it. Hoping someday a shining knight with alternative sword rescues us this dependence --- it is not a yogurt matter it is soul matter! Drops of lewdness everyone’s tongue with a crude station!

    Greg Mankiw's Blog: From The Daily Show#links

    Economy all about digging grave yard, who dig more deep who gets the points.There is no right or wrong in economy; everything is right everything is wrong, the point of the view of majority or minority that “only” count. When economy is going well – well no one talk about it. When their wallets on a gate of the graveyard everyone get blood in their eyeballs – bumping Bumper stickers their sockets for the bull terriers barking!! But then that make us so loveable creatures - when you are fighting you are more alive… Economy stupid is stupid stupid economy alalal a mad woman in a mad house.

    Why baby are generally happy? Unless they are sick. Because they have no worries. When they cry because they want to eat and their nappy been changed.
    If you don’t know much about things that probably make you more happy and an optimistic congenial beauty!
    If you know more you would know then you don’t know much about what around you that make you small and unhappy…? Do you think this make you a pessimistic pit-bull?

    Enchanting Butterflies. I love butterflies, I had so many of them in our old houses, best catch them at midday at summer, because they are resting at the flowers and listening summer songs.

    Greg Mankiw's Blog: Rogoff joins the Pigou Club: "Rogoff joins the Pigou Club"

    A while back, Greg Mankiw gave four reasons not to join the Pigou Club:

    1. You deny the existence of these externalities as a type of market failure...

    2. You recognize the externalities but you don’t think the government should try to respond to them. You are such a believer in small government that you are willing to live with inferior economic outcomes, such as pollution and congestion.

    3. You recognize the externalities, think the government should try to correct them, but think the current low taxes we put on gasoline are sufficient...

    4. You recognize the externalities but think the government should try to correct the market failure through regulations (such as CAFE standards) or through market-based solutions that do not raise government revenue (such as cap-and-trade systems)...

    Greg Mankiw's Blog: The Snarkiest - Coolest url of All Time

    Greg Mankiw's Blog: The Coolest url of All Time

    I think it is a great idea for the Chinese image, all culture events are nice touch feeling. What An enchanting invitation!

    Societal psychology is characterised by fifteen key propositions:

    1. Human beings need to be studied in a sociocultural context
    2. The individual and the collective cannot be separated ontologically
    3. The ecology of the environment, its objective characteristics, needs to be studied alongside its mediated reality
    4. People create social organizations - but it is the social organizations that recast people
    5. Innovation is as much an imperative of the social system of relations to the environment as is conformity
    6. The aim of societal psychology is the development of conceptual frameworks or models rather than the forlorn search for invariant laws
    7. The need for theoretical pluralism
    8. There is a need to maintain a historical perspective
    9. Cross-fertilization between societal psychology and the other social sciences is indispensable for the adequate analysis of social phenomena and social systems
    10. There is a need for cross-fertilization among societal, developmental, and personality psychologists
    11. There is also a need for cross-fertilization between basic and applied research
    12. Societal psychology requires a systems approach
    13. The study of a social phenomenon requires a multilevel approach, at the macro as well as the micro level
    14. We need to accept and examine the implication that there is no such thing as value-free social research
    15. We need to adopt a much wider range of research tools

    Everyone gets bargain: Oversea student can study top universities, USA can attract quality of human resource to build knowledge economy(if they decide to stay at the USA after they finish their education, even they return their own coutnry, good for the building a relationship) without any taxpayer cost; the student bring their own money for fee, lodging etc… the old saying goes; you can eat chickens as well as eggs. But heheh becuase of the economy suffer … in a life you can not get everything what you want. Give some take some, but occasionally you can get everything; a such as…. Let me think… Yes eventually the economy picks its belly up then you get both brain and money. Conquer with knowledge and mind not a gun! The knowledge economy is the lasting comparative advantage!
