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.
