There are a lot of interesting reasons but for the purpose of this article the one I would like to highlight is the baggage of X86 backwards compatibility. For the first time power efficiency became more important to the success of a CPU than speed. All of the transistors and all of the millions of lines of x86 code that Intel and Microsoft had invested in the PC became an obstacle to power efficiency. The most important aspect of Microsoft and Intel’s market hegemony became a liability over night.

Cheap money movements are always children of periods of falling prices. Rising prices, by stimulating business activities, by favoring the borrower—the active user of capital—as against the creditor, do not breed general political and social disaffection, even though they may occasion as much economic injustice and in the long run may do as much harm as occurs in periods of falling prices. An ideal monetary system would be that which would give stability in prices. The gold standard, by this test, is far from ideal. Its strongest claim is not that it gives stability in prices, but that it is, one might say, automatic in its operations. If we must have general fluctuations in prices, alternating movements up and down, it is better that these should be governed by the changes in the output of a relatively stable commodity, like gold, than that they should be the outcome of political manipulation or of arbitrary adjustment of any sort whatever. It may be said for the gold standard, not that it is perfect, but that it is measurably “fool-proof.”

What we found was that much of the association between the two variables (spanking and behavior) was attributable to genetic effects that they had in common. The correlation between spanking and behavior appeared to reflect the presence of shared genetic influences cutting across both traits.

Higher ideation rates are correlated with growth and net income, most likely because companies with an innovation culture not only generate better ideas, but are organized and managed to act on them.
