Germans, the IMF, rockets and the Higgs Boson
I’ve been using Instapaper a lot now since there is way more stuff I want to read than I have time for. Here are some of the interesting links I found last week.
An interesting possible solution to the unemployment problem (it involves Germans…). Not sure if I’m 100% sold on it, though: Why Americans should work less – the way Germans do (The Guardian)
One of the few voices of economic sanity these days, the IMF? I guess I’m not that familiar with the organization but they definitely seem to be one of the few institutions providing rational economic science in these dire times: The IMF Goes All-Out on Balance-Sheet Recessions, Providing Sanity on Economic Policy (The Next New Deal)
I used to build and launce Estes rockets when I was a kid so this Kickstarter project hit home for me: Design for a Cheap, Easy and Safe Amateur rocket. by SMG INDUSTRIES (Kickstarter)
And finally, from the most sophisticated scientific instrument ever created by mankind: Physicists Find Particle That Could Be the Higgs Boson (NYTimes.com)
