Krugman Wins Nobel; Markets Rally

Krugman href="http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/6c61ac54-9922-11dd-9d48-000077b07658.html?nclick_check=1">was
awarded the href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sveriges_Riksbank_Prize_in_Economic_Sciences_in_Memory_of_Alfred_Nobel">Sveriges
Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred
Nobel.  

“It’s been an extremely weird
day, but weird in a positive way,” Mr. Krugman said in an
interview on his way to a Washington meeting for the Group of Thirty,
an international body from the public and private sectors that
discusses international economics. He said he was mostly
“preoccupied with the hassles” of trying to make
all his scheduled meetings today and answer a constantly-ringing cell
phone.

Some allege that the award is politically motivated, in light of
Krugman’s incessant attacks on the policies of the neocons.
 Insiders, however, know that the real reason for the award is
his paper on href="http://www.princeton.edu/%7Epkrugman/interstellar.pdf">The
Theory of Interstellar Trade (PDF).

Krugman was the first to recognize the problem of calculating interest
payments when relativistic speeds are involved in the transfer of goods.

Abstract: This paper extends interplanetary trade
theory to an interstellar setting.  It is chiefly concerned
with the following question: how should interest charges on goods in
transit be computed when the goods travel at close to the speed of
light?  This is a problem because the time taken in transit
will appear less to an observer traveling with the goods than to a
stationary observer.  A solution is derived from economic
theory, and two useless but true theorems are proved.

In response, the Nasdaq rocketed up 106.3 points, a 6.44% increase.
 Apple shares led the increase.  They finally will
stop losing money on shipments of iPods to href="http://www.exoplaneten.de/eridani/english.html">Epsilon
Eridani.

    Ar ôl un diwrnod ar ddeg heb idiot o’r enw Sam, ei fod yn ôl yn y gwaith. Pan fydd y penaethiaid o gwmpas, ei fod yn frown ymyl flaen. Gwneud unrhyw esgus i fynd i mewn i’r ystafell ydynt mewn, fel pe dweud “edrych arna. Wyf yn gweithio”. Roedd ei agwedd at ffrindiau gwaith arall pan nad yw’r meistri yn cael eu gwmpas yn “Yr wyf yn well na chi”. Mae’n tynnu jôc ac mae’n ddoniol (yn ei feddwl). Ond os ydych yn tynnu yn jôc arno. Rydych yn yr isaf o’r holl ffurfiau bywyd ac efe yells ei ben i ffwrdd fel strancio bedair oed. Parc o fewn 6 troedfedd (2 fetr) ar ei gar smart ac rydych yn ei blocio.

    Stellen Sie sich folgende Fragen. (1) In welchem ​​Teil der Vergangenheit würden Sie gerne leben? (2) Warum möchten Sie in dieser Zeit leben? (3) Können Sie in dieser Zeit nur mit den Werkzeugen und Geräten zur Verfügung zu jener Zeit überleben?

    Die Dächer sind aus unterschiedlichen Materialien hergestellt. Holz, Stroh, Schiefer, Stein, Metall, Kunststoff und alles andere, die verwendet werden können. Meistens hängt, wo Sie sind in der Welt und wie viel Sie kaufen können, um welche Art von Dach haben Sie.

    Where are we now on the evolution path ? Are we becoming civilized or still going down the path of increasing destructive powers ? Our medical knowledge increases with leaps and bounds of each war, but not as greatly as our destructive weapons.

    Kuhu me nüüd arengust teed? Me oleme muutumas tsiviliseeritud või ikka läheb teele suurendada hävitava võimu? Meie meditsiiniliste teadmiste suureneb hüppeliselt iga sõda, kuid mitte nii palju kui meie hävitusrelvade. Kui meie meditsiinilisi teadmisi tõusnud nii kiiresti kui meie relvad, suudame elada kaks või enam sajandeid.

    Miks inimesed nälga surema maailmas, mis toodab rohkem toitu kui ta vajab? Veebilehele ta ütles, see oli tingitud logistika liikuvate toitu. Ma ütlen, see on rohkem pistmist kasumit, kui puudub võime liikuda toitu, kus seda vajatakse. Ka mõned kolmanda maailma riikidele ekspordime toit, mida nad vajavad, et nad saavad raha eest muid asju. Kui me kõik isegi poolel teel, mida me nimetame inimkonna keegi oleks nälga. Aga me oleme inimesed ja ei suuda elada upto meie head ideaale.

    Mellakoita kerran repiä läpi useissa kaupungeissa Englannissa. Monet ihmiset kääntyvät jopa heidän työpaikallaan tänään löytää sen tuhonneet tai pahempaa, tuhotaan. Kuinka monet muut ovat menossa menettävät työpaikkansa heidän työpaikoillaan tuhoutui? Tuo armeijassa ja on mitään aiheita käsiteltäessä mellakoijia. He haluavat vahingoittaa muita heittämällä tiili ja muita asioita, niin pitäisi olla sama väkivalta takaisin heille.

    Olen visted mitmeid veebisaite minevikus thirteen nädalat mu töö, nii on igav ja teised mistyfing. On saada mõningaid teadmisi. Like, kui Jaapanis paar aastat tagasi, tulin nii lähedal, bambusest metsa Kyotos. See häirib mind, nagu oleksin soovinud visted ta.

    An elderly couple were having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table, took his wife’s hand in his and said , “Clara, soon we
    will be married 50 years and there’s something I have to know. In all of these 50 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?”
    Clara replied, “Well, Paul, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I’ve been unfaithful to you three times during these 50 years, but always for a good reason.”
    Paul was obviously hurt by his wife’s confession, but said, “I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by ‘good reasons?”
    Clara said, “The first time was shortly after we were married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn’t pay the mortgage. Do you remember that one evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?”
    Paul recalled the visit to the banker and said, “I can forgive you for that. You saved our home, but what about the second time?”
    Clara asked, “And do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn’t have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge.”
    “I recall that,” said Paul. “And you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that. Now tell me about the third time.”
    “All right,” Clara said. “So do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club, and you needed 73 more votes?”

    Doctor Dave had slept with one of his patients and felt guilty all day long.

    No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn’t.

    The guilt and sense of betrayal was overwhelming. But every once in a while he’d hear an internal, reassuring voice that said:

    “Dave, don’t worry about it. You aren’t the first doctor to sleep with one of their patients and you won’t be the last. And you’re single. Just let it go..”

    But invariably the other voice would bring him back to reality, whispering:

    “Dave you’re a vet.”

    I have read this article a number of times and my opinion of it is it is quite civil and courteous. It comes across as being fair minded and dependable, but next time could you please try to add a bit of humour to it. Thank you.

    Your oratory is very soulful and mellow, but at least its in a good way, not depressing. Your eloquent rhetoric is very accomplished and adept, they seem to promote the profound. Brilliant!

    You have taken a respectable guess, and it has turned out a bit of a mess. But at least it has turned out a good mess.

    The country was under attack from overwhelming forces, the leader was giving a speech to rally the people. He told them we are superior, he told them we would overcome anything, he told them we are all in this together untill the last. After he roused them up and sent them into battle, he ordered to be driven to the airport and said “I hope those fools hold back the invaders long enough to let me escape from this country”!
