  1. Systemic - Too cheap to meter

    Trying to calculate the monetary value of distant planets. I’d like to see calculations with a different example at the start, and different measures of inflation.

  2. Welcome To The North » A whole lot of nothing

    A transcript of an interview with Doncaster’s new mayor, whose election manifesto might as well have been written by people who post the BBC’s Have Your Say comments. (via Haddock)

  3. Cambridge University - CamTV - Video and Audio - The Phillips Machine with Allan McRobie

    Video of the machine that simulates the economy using water. A few years back I couldn’t even find a picture of this thing. The internet’s getting better.
