The law of supply and demand

Last Sunday evening, I suddenly wondered about the law of supply and demand. Also see my blog of Tuesday. Supply will create demand. Demand will result in supply. Once demand and supply reach an equilibrium, a market price emerges. Does this phenomenon extend to the Space and Time dimensions? From an individual's (ie, micro) perspective, a supply of time (eg, a...

The fallacy of control (3)

A friend sent me a comment on my recent blog The fallacy of control (2). She said that it lacked a connection with acceptance (my blogs). I agree.

Decoupling (8): Shell climate verdict

Recently, Royal Dutch a.k.a. Shell Oil was ordered by a Dutch judge to accelerate its climate targets (eg, Axios, FT, WSJ). The judge argued that climate rights are a part of universal human rights. My blog will not discuss those arguments. It is, however, another example of a decoupling (my blogs) between Business (ie, the belief system Money) and Politics (as a...
