Paul Collins | Lapham's Quarterly | 15 September 2011

If you put $1m in a thousand-year trust, it would stand to bring your
  offspring $400 trillion. Which is why governments have tried to outlaw
  "perpetual" trusts: They could bankrupt whole states. Compound interest is a
  powerful thing [8]Comments

[9]Economics For Ethics
    Links:
      9. http://b.rw/psZ1vP

Anonymous | Philosopher's Beard | 16 September 2011

"Because ethicists have so many reasonable complaints about economists, they
  rarely take what economists do and how they think seriously. So this post
  will follow a path less travelled and ask what economics can do for ethics"

Sarah Topol | Businessweek | 15 September 2011

Based in Ramallah. CEO says it's a "shockproof exchange. We could not
  possibly be affected by political chaos, because we are an exchange that was
  born into political chaos. For us, what happened in Cairo is like child’s
  play" [14]Comments

David Menconi | Stanford | 11 September 2011

Super piece on Josh Knobe and rise of x-phi, experimental philosophy that
  seeks out truths using methods borrowed from the social sciences. Challenges
  age old belief that "if anything can be pursued in an armchair, philosophy
  can" [16]Comments
