hard heads soft hearts

a scratch pad for half-formed thoughts by a liberal political junkie who's nobody special. ''Hard Heads, Soft Hearts'' is the title of a book by Princeton economist Alan Blinder, and tends to be a favorite motto of neoliberals, especially liberal economists.

book/paper I want to read: "The life-cycle of corporations and long-term equity/debt returns for the small passive investor". Who has written it? If no one, who has written the best book/paper on "The life-cycle of corporations: historical data and theoretical models"? Also interested in discussions comparing the life-cycle of publicly traded corporations versus the life-cycle of private corporations/proprietorships/partnerships.

I like Deep Thoughts, and probably think one of the big blogs should have an open thread for them, if they don't already. Here are 2 of mine, followed by a (really) deep thought:

Deep Thought: Living off the capital feels a lot like living off the income.

Deep Thought: You can't mix sambar with ketchup.

Deep Thought: "Patriotism is not enough, I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone."


And it seems to me that for "patriotism" you can substitute "ideals" or "dreams".
