someone else's culture consumption

The checkout machines at the library give you a receipt when you're done, listing everything you checked out. It's a pretty useless and wasteful thing, and as far as I know we all throw the receipts out immediately. Today someone left theirs, and it was really interesting.

This isn't light reading for anyone, even a dedicated economics nerd. Keynes and Galbraith are two of the towering figures of 20th-century economics. The General Theory is one of the landmarks of economics for all time: when you make a list, you start with Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, then a few centuries later comes General Theory.

Excellent movies, but pretty intense.

I guess at the end of the day, we all have to relax.
