Interesting stuff

  1. Read: The Great Resignation is restoring flexibility to America’s economy (and Americans’ lives) — watch this space!
  2. Listen: The bizarre ways in which Big Butter tried to stop margarine
  3. Read: How climate change is causing heavier downpours
  4. Listen: An insightful look into the physical and financial drivers of commodity prices
  5. Read: Workers are rethinking the role of “work” in their lives 
  6. Read: David Graeber died last year, but his last book is coming out soon. The Dawn of Everything looks like a good counterargument to those scholars who propose centralised versions of early human settlement.

  8. Watch: Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, on how climate activists might start a revolution for change. I hope they succeed!
  9. Read (in Dutch): Dutch water boards are not that “democratic” and that’s leading to some serious financial stress.
