Trekonomics · 4:24am Aug 27th, 2015

I figure while I'm plugging one econ crossover, I might as well add another: sci-fi fans might be interested in Trekonomics (introduction and chapters 1 and 8 available at link), a forthcoming book on the economics of Star Trek. Or some of the preview videos on YouTube, like this one on how a post-scarcity society, one of the foundations of the series, relates to the real world,

Billionaires are unethical · 12:48pm September 22nd



Having a lot of money doesn't always equate to happiness. Most of the time, it can make anyone morally corrupt. The gap between the rich and the poor has been getting wider over time and it will continue to widen if there's no solution to economic inequality.

Back to School! · 4:04pm Aug 22nd, 2016

Going back to school for a degree in economics. I've dropped out twice, hopefully third time's the charm! It's weird being surrounded by 18-year-olds again.

I want to bring socialism to America, and I figure people will take me more seriously with a degree.

Video made by me

Well, I honestly don't know what to say for this introduction since I've never read this fic.

This week we have a somewhat popular side fic starring a Unicorn Blacksmith living in the Bayou of the southern wasteland. I'm really not sure what else to say, but I'm really interested to see how this goes.

Bradel's New Economics I – Crowdfunding is Awesome · 12:42pm Aug 27th, 2015

After reading some of the things bookplayer and Applejinx have been posting lately, I wanted to write up a blog on why you should care about networking, and why it's not a dirty word. I wanted to do a whole discussion of new economic ideas. I wanted to talk about

So here we go—I'm back to discuss eco-economics, the Mondragón Cooperative Corporation, and

Bradel's New Economics III – Sharing · 5:19pm Oct 2nd, 2015

So I tried writing this thing once, and I wasn't very happy with how it came out. You know what that means.

...you don't? Well, you should. It means it's time for an old fashioned high school style persuasive essay! (When in doubt, go with the classics!)

Radix-Economy & Monetary Denominations. · 4:21am Oct 22nd, 2015

The most apes use decimal currency. In most currencies, the largest currencies are 100 or 1,000. The smallest denominations is generally .01. One could have these denominations:

1,000.00
0,100.00
0,010.00
0,001.00
0,000.10
0,000.01

The denominations are far apart, thus making change difficult. Most countries use pseudonbinary:

1,000.00
0,500.00
0,250.00
0,100.00
0,050.00
0,025.00
0,010.00
0,005.00
0,002.00
0,001.00
0,000.50
0,000.25
0,000.10
