A Prime Radiant for Krugman

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — m759 @ 6:00 AM

Paul Krugman:
Asimov's Foundation  novels grounded my economics

In the Foundation  novels of Isaac Asimov

"The Prime Radiant can be adjusted to your mind, and all
corrections and additions can be made through mental rapport.
There will be nothing to indicate that the correction or addition
is yours. In all the history of the Plan there has been no
personalization. It is rather a creation of all of us together.
Do you understand?"  

"Yes, Speaker!"

— Isaac Asimov, Second Foundation , Ch. 8: Seldon's Plan

"Before time began, there was the Cube."
