Op Ed

Mises Daily - A Virtual Weimar: Hyperinflation in a Video Game World.
Two obvious solutions for managers of virtual economies include more vigilant bot restrictions and close — indeed, real-time — monitoring of faucet output, sink absorption, prices, and user behaviors. More critically, though, whether structured as auctions or exchanges, markets must be allowed to operate freely, without caps, floors, or other artificialities. Unrestricted (real) cash auctions would for the most part preempt and obviate black markets.

Out of the Blue

Weird that I mentioned the rain on yesterday, which turned out to be Towel Day: it's funny how things can come together on their own sometimes. But it's a shame I didn't remember it was Towel Day in advance, so I was thinking maybe we need to make more of a thing about Towel Day Eve. Trouble with that is, I think the best way to live up to Douglass Adams' legacy would to have this be arbitrarily obtuse, so Towel Day Eve should probably be in December or something. Well that's no help. Guess I'll just have to consider paying more attention in the future.
