Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Newberry, my brother: "The structure they proposed is out of Plato's Republic." Bwah! That's what I thought about mid-term PoliSci 101. Bwahahahahaha. Incidentally, here is a totally fabulous tool for translating "classics." I discovered it because of a comment DoDo made linking ASTROLOGY and MISSILES. Too funny.

One last leap: Newbury links S-curve to aerospace technology R&D. That's all well and good example of "classic" marketing strategy. I was impressed though by the visual aid below, a NYT reprint published by visualizingeconomics.com, just because it's a collection of predictable "breakthroughs" and market saturation ("plateau") that inevitably precipitates "expansion" into "emerging" markets. Newberry's most excellent polecon observation: "We [G20] are, today, in this inuauguration moment, at a pinnacle of consumption. " That would be the heel of the curve, at the pinnacle of distributing "classic" democracy and innovative, complex financial products. Worldwide. LOL.

Watch Geithner for epic fail.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
