FYI

Having a purpose in life and death
Most people have had the experience of being in a pitch-dark environment, one in which it is difficult to see in front of our faces. It is at such times that we appreciate the significance of light. I was impressed during a power outage in the last year just how dark it could be. Looking out the window, there was not a light to be seen, save the cars that were driving around.

Congress dodges world poverty aid
Last year the world's rich countries promised to do something about the debt burden that entrenches poverty in large parts of the world. Developing countries were asked to present ideas on how they would use the resources freed by debt relief to reduce poverty; creditors said they would find the money to make debt write-offs possible.

Word of mouth

The economics behind flightseeing
I can't imagine that there are many economists who would oppose regulating flightseeing operations in Juneau. Aircraft noise imposes costs on people because it reduces the enjoyment of outdoor activities. Economists call this kind of noise an ``external cost'' or ``externality'' because it is outside the market transaction.
