Mr. Spock you will be missed. Which is your favorite Spock episode? Mine is Unification from the Next Generation. I miss Star Trek in its various avatars and its positive humanistic vision of the future. Most science fiction that makes it to the screen these days seems to be of a dystopian future, including the J J Abrahams reboot.

Austerity policies during a recession make matters worse, not better. A lesson that the world learnt in the aftermath of the Great Depression but seems to have forgotten in this century. What ails the global economy is the lack of demand, which the austerity policies have only exacerbated, take it away,Prof. Stiglitz.
With the recent elections in Greece, finally, someone with real political power is standing up to the conventional wisdom that austerity is good for the economy. You can keep track of their progress, on the Greek finance minister’s blog. I wish the new the Greek government all the luck, they are going to need it while navigating the shoals of the economy, including the debt and massive unemployment.
