Out of the myriad of topics I have committed myself to write about (either publicly on the blog, or personally), I haven’t really been able to find the concentration to tackle them lately. For that, I apologize.
In this post, I said I had a point about the Amish debate, but then later that night, Robin Hanson made it for me. So I guess I’m off the hook on that one. However, I committed to a few things in this post that I haven’t been able to take the time to really write about. Specifically, a deeper analysis of complementary currencies, and city planning.
A few other topics that I have on my plate include education, financial reform, and the network structure of firms. However, it doesn’t seem like I’ve been taking in enough news to say anything new about these topics (except the last one).
I’m going to make it a point to tackle one of these issues every week until they are done, and I’m starting tonight by re-reading “The Future of Money” and “The Ecology of Money“, and outlining a blog post (for this weekend) that will hopefully shed some light on complementary currencies for people who may not be familiar with them.
