iDoneThis blog: The Most Innovative Employees at Google Aren't Stanford/MIT grads with Perfect SATs -
Google has long had a reputation for being a place that’s near impossible to get a job if you aren’t a Stanford or MIT grad. They not only asked you for your college GPA, they even asked you what you made on your SAT as a pimple-faced high schooler.

Old fashioned Keynesianism, as practiced by the likes of [Paul] Krugman, resembles a set of religious dogmas, not scientific propositions. Austrians view economics as a science, a body of theory and application that helps us understand the world. Keynesians see economics as a set of political tools useful to rationalize and justify an a priori faith in unlimited government. Krugman, like Keynes himself, dislikes businesspeople, consumers, and especially entrepreneurs and investors, and prefers a world in which an elite cadre of intellectuals and bureaucrats controls most investment, production, and consumption decisions. Fine, everyone has a right to his personal belief system. But let’s not pretend there’s anything scientific about the multiplier, the marginal propensity to consume, the liquidity trap, and the other relics and sacraments of the Keynesian religion. — Peter Klein (via laliberty)

In Christian tradition, there’s the concept of “The Original Sin.” It’s believed that human beings, by nature, are bad. Socrates wrote about the body and soul. The soul, due to its origin, is good. The body, due to its origin, is bad. In the Muslim and Jewish traditions, the body and soul aren’t good or bad. It’s what you do with them that matters. — Tariq Ramadan (via tariqramadan)
