One of the refreshing and creativity-inducing things for me about the Internet is reading well-written essays by people who think about the same kind of issues as I do, but with their own perspective and je ne sais quoi.
I reveled in such a find yesterday, upon reading The Idea Shop. There Andrew David Chamberlain has already discussed such important and interesting issues as water policy, the fable of the bees, why we don’t run out of oil, and the transaction costs facing startup businesses in developing countries. And he does so with a a voice of simultaneous clarity and wonder — clarity from simple, elegant explanation of economic dynamics, wonder at the fantastic complex system of mutually beneficial exchange.
Thanks to Newmark’s Door for the pointer.
