Sunday Papers

5 books interview with economic historian Michael Lind. America achieved economic hegemony by copying European models. China is doing the same thing to us.

Can buying Pringle save Kelloggs? In the Battle Creek lab; not the Wonka-like setting I had envisioned as a child denied Frosted Flakes and Sugar Smacks.

Review of the new Eisenhower biography. The book's author was my Pol 104 professor at U of T.

Search for the next big technology. The Economist suggests 3D printing. I am betting on ubiquitous artificial intelligence, like Siri and Watson. But predictions are hard, especially about the future.

Speaking of which, apparently today’s technology facilitates being “alone together” and has destroyed conversation.
