“Irgendwann fällt jede Mauer”

Man has a large capacity for effort. In fact it is so much greater than we think it is that few ever reach this capacity.
– Admiral Rickover, Thoughts on Man’s Purpose in Life, 1982

Haptonomy is neither a method nor a technique but the Art of Being Human!
– Dr. Frans Veldman, Confirming Affectivity, the Dawn of Human Life, 2001

The Agents in Egypt were notified that the First Lifter, Boarded by Lisa, the Hostess and the hawk, would leave and rendezvous with Manta.

His academic research was steeped in the increasingly sophisticated discipline of econometrics, which uses computer models to simulate (and predict) the economy. By contrast, Greenspan often relied on his hunches. The difference is partly generational, but Bernanke is clearly more comfortable working with mathematical formulas than with anecdotal examples. (One looks in vain in his Depression writings for stories of banks that failed or of workers who lost their jobs.)

…Inflation is related to monetary policy. It’s related to the issue of money. The issue of money is a governmental responsibility predominantly, and to use that authority in a way that leads to inflation is a system that fools a lot of people, and to keep fooling them you have to do it more and more; [that] is a moral issue. I put myself in that camp.

…“Contemporary finance” is being exposed as a daisy-chain of interrelated risks and fragilities.
