Daily Thoughts 08/18/2015

I checked the Twitter and Facebook this morning for the library.  This weekend I got a rocking chair and a sofa chair from a garage sale.  It makes for comfortable reading.

I read some more of The Economics of Inequality.  I am learning that the definition of Capital and Labor is changing.  For example if a a person is self employed they produce both labor and capital.  This interesting to me because if you have an employed owned operation it also produces both labor and capital.  Also, I learned that automation can replace labor.  There are situations where labor and capital become fluid.

Today, I went to the mall and walked around.  I went to Barnes and Nobles and bought two paperbacks, Nancy Farmer, The Land of the Silver Appples which is fantasy Proxima by Stephen Baxter which is hard science fiction.  I started reading Proxima today.  The main character has become an involuntary colonist for a far off world.
