Seperti yang didiskusikan dengan teman-teman saya di sini adalah rencana yang bisa membantu Peremajaan merevitalisasi dan membuatnya lebih relevan bagi lebih banyak pengguna. Aset inti Twitter8217 adalah sifat sesaat dari produk. Twitter adalah platform yang menggulingkan pemerintah. Namun, sifat singkat produk yang sama juga menghambat pertumbuhannya. Misalnya, tidak ada cara yang baik bagi pengguna baru untuk melihat-lihat catatan sejarah dan melihat apa yang membuat Twitter begitu hebat dan mengapa mereka harus peduli. Keluhan yang saya dapatkan dari orang-orang ketika saya berbicara dengan mereka tentang Twitter adalah bahwa tidak ada konteks yang sulit didapat ke8221. Jadi apa yang membuat Twitter berbeda dari jejaring sosial lainnya Menurut pendapat saya itu adalah realtime, melanggar berita sifat produk. Tidak ada jaringan sosial lain yang menawarkan fitur itu dengan sangat baik seperti Twitter. Tapi yang saya pikirkan adalah, karena waktu adalah komponen inti Twitter, mengapa begitu sedikit perhatian di UI. Dan karena kita berbicara tentang waktu8230 Dalam pengalaman umum manusia, adalah waktu vertikal atau horizontal yang akan saya bantah bahwa waktu umumnya dialami sebagai fenomena horisontal. Untuk waktu yang ada, kita perlu melakukan perjalanan melalui ruang angkasa, dan dalam banyak hal merupakan pengalaman horisontal. Di mobil, pesawat, kereta api, dll. Berpikir tentang waktu sebagai horisontal, bukan vertikal, bukanlah ide baru untuk perangkat lunak. Pertimbangkan semua perangkat lunak pengeditan audio dan video yang sebagian besar menjadikan waktu sebagai artefak horisontal. Scrubbing amp Time Zoom Salah satu fitur hebat dari perangkat lunak pengeditan audio dan video adalah kemampuan untuk dengan mudah meraih dan mengurangi waktu garis belakang dan ke depan. Ditambah dengan kemampuan untuk memperbesar dan memperkecil resolusi waktu, sangat mudah untuk menavigasi garis waktu ke bagian yang Anda minati. (Klik untuk memperbesar) Menempatkan semua ini bersama-sama tidak sulit untuk memvisualisasikan cara baru untuk Menggunakan Twitter Sebuah TimeWall yang terus bergerak menyamping pada kecepatan waktu8221. Dengan kemampuan untuk melipatgandakan percakapan dengan membuangnya ke kiri dan kanan. Juga dengan kemampuan zoom-in dan out hingga menit, jam, hari, bulan, tahun. Saat diperbesar ke resolusi waktu, ui dan backend menyoroti percakapan terpenting dari kerangka waktu itu. Pikirkan Laporan Minoritas. TimeWall baru ini akan memberi pengguna kemampuan untuk terhubung ke 8220an pada waktu8221 dan akan membuka semua konten arsip yang tersimpan di Twitter8217s. Selanjutnya, Twitter akhirnya memiliki kemampuan untuk memiliki content8221 8220long. Ini akan jauh lebih bersahabat bagi pengguna baru yang bisa menjelajahi Twitter sepenuhnya menggunakan fitur kalibrasi dan zoom yang baru. Konten jangka panjang juga bisa meningkatkan luas permukaan Google SEO Twitter8217s. Yang berarti isinya adalah jebakan lalat yang jauh lebih besar dan lebih banyak orang akan melihat konten twitter di hasil pencarian lebih sering. Meski TimeWall penuh tidak sesuai untuk ponsel secara lebih potret, alat penggosok waktu dan alat zoom inout waktu masih berfungsi sebagai alat navigasi utama, bahkan dengan daftar tweet vertikal biasa. Tentu saja, bagi banyak perangkat mobile dalam mode landscape, tidak akan ada masalah. Jelas, ini hanya permulaan, tapi dengan lebih banyak pemikiran dan iterasi dari tim inti penguat Twitter8217s ada satu ton utilitas yang bisa dibuka di sini. Siapa tahu, ini mungkin akan memulai sebuah revolusi Twitter. Untuk diskusi lebih lanjut lihat Hacker News. Selamat berlibur. Jika Anda menyukai saya, jaringan kabel Samsung Smart HUB TV Anda berhenti bekerja tanpa alasan yang masuk akal. Namun router Anda bekerja dengan baik, dan perangkat lain di router juga bekerja dengan baik. Hmm. Saya menghabiskan berjam-jam menjelajah internet dan tidak menemukan solusi. Saya tersandung pada perbaikan yang adalah untuk .. 1) Buka pengaturan jaringan. 2) Klik ke pengaturan IP. 3) Klik setel secara manual. 4) Kemudian ubah sedikit pengaturan sekitar sedikit. 5) Kemudian klik set secara otomatis. 6) Lakukan langkah 3 5 sekali lagi. Ini memaksa sistem untuk meminta router untuk menyediakan kembali alamat ip jaringan DHCP, dan saya yakin ini memperbaiki masalahnya. Ini juga menghentikan kebutuhan untuk me-reset ke pengaturan pabrik (yang BTW tidak mengubah pengaturan jaringan) Model saya adalah UN40ES6500F tapi saya pikir PBB akan memiliki masalah serupa. Baru-baru ini, banyak artikel yang ada di Bitcoin. Begitu banyak sehingga, rasanya seperti persekongkolan untuk menyebarkan FUD Dengan pemikiran itu, inilah argumen balasan saya terhadap beberapa pesan anti-bitcoin yang lebih umum. Ingatlah ini hanya pendapat saya, tolong jangan menghabiskan uang berdasarkan renungan saya di bawah FUD: Ahli ekonomi berpendidikan menganggap Bitcoin adalah sampah dan tidak pergi ke mana Sejarah dikotori dengan contoh pemikiran yang mengganggu yang tidak dapat dipahami oleh para ahli dan sebagai Hasilnya membuat prediksi yang benar-benar salah. Misalnya di tahun 2007 Matthew Lynn, seorang jurnalis keuangan, mengumumkan bahwa iPhone itu tidak lebih dari barang mewah yang akan menarik beberapa aneh gadget .8221. Sebenarnya, berkali-kali orang tidak tahu apa yang akan terjadi dengan satu atau lain cara. Lebih jauh lagi, saya berpendapat bahwa sulit bagi para ekonom terdidik untuk memprediksi hasil Bitcoin, karena Bitcoin datang untuk mengikuti spesialisasi yang sama sekali berbeda (yaitu perangkat lunak dan kriptografi). FUD: Bitcoin adalah penipuan jangka pendek untuk menghasilkan uang dengan cepat Sebagian besar pengguna Bitcoin tidak bertindak seperti itu. Sebenarnya, salah satu argumen terbesar melawan Bitcoin yang menjadi mata uang stabil adalah pengguna sebagian besar menimbun Bitcoin untuk keuntungan jangka panjang. Spekulan ini membeli Bitcoin untuk jangka panjang karena mereka yakin Bitcoin akan naik nilainya dalam jangka panjang. Sebagai contoh, si kembar Winklevoss membeli Bitcoin senilai 11 juta, dengan harapan bahwa dalam jangka panjang mereka akan melipatgandakan investasinya secara substansial. FUD: Bitcoin adalah skema Ponzi yang mirip dengan membandingkan apel dengan jeruk. Skema Ponzi membayar kembali kepada investornya dari uang yang dibayarkan oleh investor berikutnya, sampai akhirnya tidak ada investor baru dan semuanya macet. Di sisi lain, Bitcoin adalah mata uang kripto dengan nilai tukar yang berfluktuasi yang mengapung dengan bebas setiap hari 8211 seperti emas, dolar, euro, dll. Bitcoin juga merupakan lapisan transportasi tanpa gesekan yang memungkinkan pembayaran digital melintasi rekan kerja. -to-peer network. FUD: Bitcoin secara inheren deflasi. Jadi kurang uang bagi semua orang untuk dibelanjakan. Ini buruk. Bitcoin membahas masalah ini dengan memiliki 8 tempat desimal. Semakin tinggi nilai Bitcoin naik, semakin kecil ukuran transaksi desimal akan menjadi. Setiap tempat desimal memiliki nama, dengan unit terkecil menjadi Satoshi 1. Jika 1 Bitcoin bernilai sebanyak satu juta dolar 1 Satoshi masih hanya bernilai 1 sen dolar. Dengan kata lain, tidak perlu mencetak mata uang baru, kita bisa menggunakan unit Bitcoin yang lebih kecil. FUD: Bitcoin tidak bisa menjadi mata uang karena orang menimbun Bitcoin dan volume transaksi terlalu rendah. Orang membuat argumen ini karena mereka membandingkan Bitcoin dalam keadaan saat ini dengan mata uang modern. Namun, saya berpendapat bahwa Bitcoin belum berkembang jauh melampaui titik emas menjadi toko nilai. Pada periode awal emas itu tidak persis gesek, volume tinggi, transaksi tinggi, komoditas. Itu terjadi setelah emas-buru-buru emas berakhir di saku rata-rata Joe. Bahkan saat itu, emas tidak pernah menjadi mata uang modern yang benar-benar tanpa gesekan sampai kertas mewakili emas dalam sistem moneter standar emas. Kami sudah memiliki ATM Bitcoin. Coinbase. Dan banyak usaha Bitcoin lainnya. Sekarang ingatlah pikiran Anda lima tahun ke depan dan pertimbangkan semua perangkat lunak dan perangkat keras lainnya yang bisa membuat Bitcoin lebih mudah digunakan. Begitu perangkat ini dikerahkan ke pasar konsumen, masuk akal bahwa likuiditas Bitcoin akan meningkat. Pertimbangan lainnya adalah likuiditas sejati tidak akan terjadi pada tingkat BtC penuh, kemungkinan konsumen akan memperdagangkan pecahan Bitcoin daripada seluruh Bitcoin. FUD: Bitcoin akan mendevaluasi atau merosot karena penjahat menggunakan botnet untuk menambang koin dengan listrik gratis. Jika Bitcoin bergerak menuju adopsi konsumen massal, hasil ini menjadi kurang dari probabilitas. Coinbase sudah memiliki 650k pengguna sah yang diverifikasi dan tentu saja ini hanyalah puncak gunung es. Teknologi Bitcoin memungkinkan transaksi berbasis nilai gesek tanpa batas. Ide ini sangat berguna dan virus. Efek virus mungkin diperkuat saat penyedia perangkat lunak dan perangkat keras mulai mengintegrasikan Bitcoin ke dalam arus kerja dan produk setiap hari. Dengan cukup banyak pengguna, argumen ini menjadi lemah karena penggunaan Bitcoin oleh jaringan kriminal hanya akan mewakili sebagian kecil pasar. FUD: Bitcoin dirancang untuk menghindari pajak. Itu seperti mengatakan bahwa uang tunai USD dirancang untuk menghindari pajak. Ya, sangat mungkin menggunakan uang tunai untuk menghindari pajak dengan melewatkannya di bawah meja dan tidak mengumumkannya ke pemerintah. Namun, jika Anda menggunakan uang tunai dalam konstruksi normal masyarakat (misalnya toko), itu akan dilalui melalui berbagai sistem (seperti cash register) yang akan mencatat transaksi. Saya berpendapat bahwa pada saat Bitcoin menjadi konsumen dengan volume tinggi yang diperdagangkan kebanyakan transaksi akan melewati beberapa bentuk cash register. FUD: Bitcoin jahat Mengingat kecepatan teknologi modern, dengan satu atau lain cara, mata uang digital murni ada di masa depan kita. Bahkan jika Bitcoin gagal, sesuatu yang sangat mirip akan menggantikannya. Bitcoin bisa dibilang salah satu representasi kejahatan digital yang kurang baik karena dianggap de-terpusat. Setelah wahyu NSA baru-baru ini, tampaknya sangat bodoh untuk mempercayai pemerintah dengan sesuatu yang sehebat mata uang digital yang diatur sepenuhnya sehingga mereka bisa memanfaatkan 100 kekayaan siapa pun dengan satu klik tombol. FUD: Kurangnya peraturan untuk memfasilitasi pasar ilegal Perlu dicatat bahwa pemerintah dan aparat penegak hukum kita sama sekali tidak berguna. Misalnya FBI benar-benar mampu menutup Silk Road. Jaring obat terlarang pasar gelap. Ada juga argumen kontra bahwa dengan mempermudah penjahat untuk terhubung dan bertransaksi melalui situs web pasar terpusat, akan memudahkan lembaga penegak hukum untuk melacak komunitas kriminal, yang jika tidak bertindak dengan cara yang jauh lebih terdispersi dan tidak dapat dilacak . FUD: Satu persen teratas pengguna Bitcoin memiliki 40 persen Bitcoin yang saya sebut bahwa 1 persen teratas orang Amerika memiliki 40 persen kekayaan negara. Ternyata jenis distribusi kekayaan inilah yang menjadi norma. Saya tidak mengatakan bahwa saya menyukainya, saya tidak mengerti bagaimana argumen ini mengandung bobot mengenai Bitcoin. FUD: Bitcoin mempermudah penjahat untuk berbisnis satu sama lain. Ya, tapi juga mempermudah pelaku kriminal untuk berbisnis satu sama lain. Karena ada lebih banyak penjahat selain penjahat, orang dapat dengan mudah berdebat bahwa sifat lamban Bitcoin dapat menawarkan manfaat bagi masyarakat pada umumnya yang melebihi kelemahan ini. Misalnya, Bitcoin mempermudah pemilik bisnis independen di negara-negara dunia ketiga untuk berdagang dengan negara-negara lain di dunia. FUD: Pengadopsi awal cenderung menghasilkan keuntungan, kemudian pengadopsinya sama dengan usaha terkait bisnis mana pun yang pertama melibatkan orang-orang yang mengambil semua risiko sosial dan finansial. Ada banyak usaha pada mata uang virtual yang dihasilkan tanpa adopsi dan investor awal kehilangan 100. Bitcoin mungkin saja dengan mudah melakukannya. Namun, Bitcoin nampaknya adalah versi mata uang virtual yang akhirnya menyerang akord. Pergantian kejadian ini sama seperti waktu dan keberuntungan karena ini adalah hal lain. Mengapa kita harus menganiaya batch pengadopsi awal untuk teknologi khusus ini? Apa perbedaan antara ini dan yang membeli saham Google di 85 yang sekarang 1000 Jika seseorang saat ini membeli Google di 1000 adalah mereka pengisap, atau hanya investor yang melewatkan kesempatan awal FUD: Bitcoin akan gagal saat uang 8220real8221 sepenuhnya didigitalkan Ini jauh lebih mudah untuk menciptakan mata uang digital yang berdiri sendiri dan mandiri daripada mencoba untuk mengikat uang ke mekanisme transportasi digital yang terintegrasi penuh dengan segala sesuatu di dunia ini. Sebagai contoh, misalnya, federasi tersebut memutuskan untuk membuat sistem transportasi digital yang serupa dengan Bitcoin yang bisa membawa uang 8282real18221 sekitar8230, ini akan menjadi usaha besar bagi mereka untuk benar-benar mengintegrasikannya ke semua toko, bank dan infrastruktur keuangan yang ada. Perlu waktu bertahun-tahun, pada saat itu Bitcoin mungkin tertanam dalam budaya komersial kita sehingga terbukti sulit atau tidak mungkin untuk dihapus. FUD: Perangkat lunak penambangan Bitcoin didistribusikan sebagai perangkat lunak perusak Jika komputer Anda rentan terhadap perangkat lunak perusak yang dapat menambang Bitcoin, komputer Anda juga rentan terhadap perangkat lunak perusak yang dapat mencuri informasi kartu kredit Anda, membajak kamera video Anda, dsb. Dengan kata lain, Anda harus Amankan komputermu FUD: Penambangan Bitcoin memiliki jejak karbon yang mengerikan Tidak mencetak uang, stamping bullion, dan koin minting juga memiliki jejak karbon Jika Anda mengukur semua komputer bank di seluruh dunia, jejak karbon seperti apa yang akan Anda temukan Bitcoin tidak berbeda dengan yang lain. Industri yang menggunakan listrik untuk menciptakan suatu produk atau jasa. Sama sekali tidak ada yang menghentikan penambang Bitcoin menggunakan mesin yang bertenaga surya atau bertenaga angin. Sebenarnya saya bisa membayangkan itu akan menjadi titik penjualan bagi para penambang Bitcoin untuk menjual koin dengan harga premium yang telah disurvei.8221. Meski begitu, secara pribadi saya ingin melihat masalah ini ditangani oleh yayasan Bitcoin. Tampaknya sangat mungkin ada pendekatan teknis untuk mengatasi kelemahan ini. Poin sebenarnya di sini adalah Bitcoin adalah teknologi yang sangat mengganggu yang berpotensi mengubah hidup kita pada tingkat fundamental dan mungkin alasan utama mengapa hal itu menimbulkan banyak kontroversi. Semoga artikel ini bisa membantu beberapa orang mengkaji ulang asumsi mereka tentang Bitcoin. Bagaimanapun, seperti yang saya nyatakan di bagian atas artikel ini, ini hanya pendapat saya, tolong jangan menghabiskan uang berdasarkan renungan saya. Yang mengatakan, jika Anda telah menemukan artikel ini berguna dan memiliki beberapa satoshi8217s untuk cadangan, pertimbangkan untuk mempertimbangkan sumbangan Bitcoin ke: 19rN88GkWwLfKBn6Kue5wGrWWq2KnqDQRk nSpeed ​​kecepatan di mana startup mampu membangun dan melepaskan fitur baru. Untuk menjadi jelas, estimasi nSpeed ​​di bawah adalah perkiraan pribadi saya dan bukan fakta ilmiah. Namun, saya harap mereka menggambarkan poin utama saya yaitu kerumitan perangkat lunak dan bisnis yang sangat memperlambat tingkat di mana tim teknis dapat merilis fitur baru. Fakta bahwa banyak orang non-teknis sulit dipahami. Tahap 1 Bergerak dari ide ke prototipe nSpeed ​​1 Kemungkinan nSpeed ​​maksimum adalah selama fase prototipe. Salah satu pengembang mampu membangun petak produk dengan kecepatan patah. Tidak ada yang menghalangi pengembang untuk memikirkan dan membangun fitur baru. Tidak ada pengguna, tidak ada perawatan, tidak ada sysops, dll. 100 upaya menghasilkan fitur baru. Tahap 2 Melepaskan versi alfa ke teman dan keluarga nSpeed ​​0.75 Kelompok pertama yang menggunakan produk perangkat lunak biasanya adalah sekelompok kecil teman dan keluarga. Pada titik ini pengembang tidak bisa lagi mencurahkan 100 usaha untuk membangun fitur baru. Mereka perlu mulai memperbaiki bug, mendukung pengguna dan mengingat tidak melanggar produk kerja. Tahap 3 Melepaskan versi beta ke pengadopsi awal nSpeed ​​0.5 Selama fase ini, basis pengguna biasanya akan tumbuh dari puluhan hingga ratusan pengguna. Pengembang sekarang perlu mulai berpikir untuk membangun lingkungan produksi yang stabil. Kode harus dikontrol dengan lebih ketat, server pengujian perlu digunakan, lebih banyak waktu diambil oleh sysops, lebih banyak bug dilaporkan dan permintaan dukungan lebih banyak dimulai. Tahap 4 Melepaskan versi v1.0 ke masyarakat umum nSpeed ​​0.25 Dengan adopsi pengguna yang sukses, banyak tantangan. Pengembang perlu memulai pengkodean dengan skala dalam pikiran. Mereka perlu mulai menambahkan hal-hal seperti job queueing, asynchronous code, load balancing, database sharding dan sub sistem terkait lainnya. Dari sini, semua kode baru perlu bekerja dalam konteks arsitektur terdistribusi tinggi. Selain itu, kenaikan biaya overhead bisnis selama fase ini adalah lebih banyak lagi pertemuan produk dll. Tahap 5 1 tahun setelah merilis V1.0 nSpeed ​​0.125 Setelah 1 tahun, basis kode dapat berkembang menjadi 100 k baris kode. Prosedur pengujian dan penyebaran sekarang jauh lebih kompleks. Ada ratusan bug di backlog. Sistem pendukung kini telah mengambil hidup mereka sendiri. Operasi sistem adalah pekerjaan penuh waktu. Menambahkan kode baru sekarang membutuhkan jumlah pemikiran, diskusi dan perhatian detail yang belum pernah terjadi sebelumnya. Tahap 6 Menjadi perusahaan menengah sampai besar 8211 nSpeed ​​Sebuah perusahaan dengan 50-100 karyawan menderita semua biaya overhead di atas dengan faktor resistensi tambahan untuk bekerja dengan banyak orang. Yang menjadi pekerjaan satu orang sekarang menjadi keseluruhan departemen. Hambatan antar departemen, tape merah dan pertemuan memperlambat semua orang secara besar-besaran. Efek molase begitu hebat, saya bahkan tidak sempat menebak nSpeed. Mari kita bayangkan bahwa Mark Zuckerberg adalah satu-satunya pengembang yang pernah bekerja di Facebook. Jika Anda menganggapnya sebagai pengembang tunggal, berpindah dari satu fase ke tahap berikutnya, tidak sulit membayangkan bagaimana nSpeed ​​setiap fase baru menjadi lebih lambat. Misalnya, jika dia sendiri mengerjakan produk untuk membawanya ke tahap 5 (dengan jutaan pengguna, arsitektur terdistribusi, dll.), Nampaknya sangat mungkin dia akan mendorong fitur baru yang jauh lebih lambat daripada selama nol Fase prototyping tanggung jawab I8217m akan menebak setidaknya 10x lebih lambat. Saya pikir banyak orang mengerti bahwa jauh lebih lambat untuk berkembang dalam sistem yang kompleks daripada mengembangkannya dengan mudah. Namun, saya tidak yakin dengan pengetahuan umumnya, seberapa lambat hal itu bisa terjadi seiring berjalannya waktu. Jika Anda seorang pengembang, saya akan sangat tertarik untuk mendengar dugaan Anda tentang fase nSpeeds dari fase apa yang mungkin terjadi. Paling tidak, saya harap artikel ini membantu menggambarkan mengapa tim teknologi Anda secara bertahap semakin lambat Ruben Gamez (Bidsketch) Meliputi seluruh spektrum perjalanan Rubens dari proyek sampingan ke perusahaan bootstrap mandiri yang baru dicetak.

Masalah utama (yang dirasakan) adalah aplikasi HTML5 tidak berfungsi saat Anda mengklik. Namun, saya berpendapat bahwa Anda dapat membangun aplikasi perasaan asli yang indah dengan HTML5, namun memerlukan perhatian terhadap detail. Caranya adalah dengan menguji dan mengoptimalkan setiap interaksi UI pada perangkat saat Anda membangun aplikasi. Jika ada sesuatu yang tidak beres, maka hentikan bangunan sampai Anda membuatnya merasa asli, dengan kail atau penjahat. Saya telah menggembar-gemborkan kemungkinan ini ke sejumlah klien selama setahun terakhir, namun mereka terlalu menghindari risiko dan memilih untuk menjadi pribumi sampai sekarang. Syukurlah, UberMedia membiarkan saya memiliki sebuah tusukan dalam membangun sebuah aplikasi kecil untuk mereka dalam HTML5 murni. Aplikasi ini disebut Splitsville (aplikasi pemecah cek), yang tersedia di toko aplikasi agar Anda dapat melihatnya. Sejauh ini, kebanyakan orang yang menggunakannya menganggapnya asli. Meskipun aplikasinya kecil, mudah membayangkan bahwa aplikasi yang lebih besar yang dibuat dari beberapa komponen seperti ini juga bisa dibuat untuk dirasakan seperti asli. Saya suka Twitter. Saya telah mencoba membangun bisnis di platform Twitter8217 selama 3 tahun terakhir. Namun, pengumuman terbaru peraturan baru mereka telah mengejutkan saya. Twitter memiliki kekuatan untuk menggulingkan rezim, namun dengan mengikuti dolar periklanan mereka membangun kebun berdinding dan membuat keputusan anti-persaingan. Itu bukan pertanda baik bagi dunia kita bahwa perusahaan yang digerakkan secara komersial harus memiliki begitu banyak kekuatan dan menjadi pusat percakapan global. Dengan cara yang sama, Wikipedia adalah demokratisasi nirlaba pengetahuan, kita memerlukan demokratisasi nirlaba tentang pesan real-time global. Dalton Caldwell punya ide yang menarik. Tapi kurasa itu akan mengakhiri monopoli Twitter karena dibayar untuk bermain. Sebagai contoh, saya meragukan aplikasi akan membawa free-for-all freedom-of-speech ke dunia ketiga. Menurut pendapat saya, skenario terbaik adalah untuk sebuah organisasi nirlaba baru yang tidak disensor untuk menawarkan API gratis, global, kuat, untuk pesan real-time. Demi artikel ini, mari kita panggil layanan baru ini, langit dan menganggapnya memiliki jutaan sumbangan untuk membuatnya tetap berjalan (pikirkan Wikipedia). Langit bisa dengan cepat memenangkan sejumlah besar pengguna karena kekuatan aneh dari orang-orang aneh dan influencer yang membicarakannya, blogging tentang hal itu, membangun perangkat lunak yang hebat, dan membiarkan semua orang tahu bahwa langit adalah pilihan terbaik untuk streaming obrolan global gratis. Segmentasi pasar bisa terlihat seperti Android dan iOS. Terutama karena langit bebas digunakan, tanpa pembatasan pengembang, streaming obrolan global baru, aplikasi freepaid tersedia di semua perangkat. Tidak ada batasan Fakta yang menyedihkan adalah saat ini Twitter memiliki hak, kekuatan, untuk membentuk percakapan global dan mengubah dunia kita. Sayangnya kepentingan komersial mereka tidak benar-benar selaras dengan tanggung jawab yang mereka percayakan. Kami membutuhkan perusahaan nirlaba yang tidak memihak untuk mengambil tempat Twitter8217s dan menjadi tulang punggung real-time-messaging sejati di internet. Situasi saat ini, dengan Twitter yang memiliki pesan real-time seperti mengatakan ATT memiliki email, atau Facebook memiliki internet. Dengan jelas, Twitter menciptakan sebuah protokol gratis di mana-mana untuk digunakan semua, dan kemudian mereka menarik akses ke sana dan mengklaimnya untuk mereka sendiri. Dengan kata lain, mereka menciptakan satu protokol dan mengundang pasar terbuka untuk membuat klien multi-varian untuk menggunakannya (seperti email, atau http). Bagaimana satu perusahaan komersial diizinkan memiliki protokol seperti http atau email Selanjutnya, syarat dan ketentuan baru Twitter8217 telah membuat beberapa tuntutan dan peraturan yang menakjubkan yang tampaknya menunjukkan warna sebenarnya dari pimpinan perusahaan. Misalnya mereka melarang bercampur antara Twitter dan jejaring sosial lainnya di layar yang sama. Geeks Have The Power Jika kita, sebagai geek, bisa membangun aplikasi yang mengagumkan dan menggunakan pengaruhnya untuk mempromosikan dan mendapatkan massa kritis ke langit, ini bisa menjadi momen yang menentukan bagi internet saat cita rasa taman bebas dan anti-berdinding menang . Menariknya, langkah keributan Twitter8217 sendiri membatasi klien pihak ke-3 hingga maksimal 100.000 pengguna memastikan bahwa pengembang klien (dan baru) yang ada akan berusaha semaksimal mungkin untuk beralih ke sistem seperti langit. Setelah mencapai critical mass (dari pengguna 100m), akan mudah bagi langit untuk menjaga donasi dan pendanaan. Bagaimanapun, jika pengembang API menghasilkan jutaan keuntungan (pikirkan Hootsuite, Datasift) mereka akan memiliki motivasi yang sangat tinggi untuk secara teratur menyumbang ke langit untuk memastikan perawatannya. Namun, mereka tidak akan bisa mengubah manifesto nirlaba dari langit. Para dermawan mungkin juga mempertimbangkan untuk menyumbang ke langit atas nama kebebasan berpendapat dan bebas terbuka. Ini juga perlu disebutkan bahwa dengan teknologi penskalaan open source baru, langit mungkin relatif murah untuk dijalankan. Investasi Ekosistem Amp Jika langit benar-benar ada maka akan menjadi pilihan yang lebih aman bagi setiap perusahaan atau investor yang sedang melakukan bisnis dengan Twitter hari ini. Manifesto langit akan kokoh dan akan memastikan bahwa pasar bebas yang tidak bias menang. Ini juga akan memastikan bahwa kemampuan API tidak akan ditarik dari bawah kaki pengembang yang bertanggung jawab. Lonjakan investasi yang terjadi pada hari-hari Twitter awal bisa bebas dipicu kembali karena kepercayaan investor baru dalam platform yang tidak tergoyahkan. Langit tidak berkewajiban selain membuat API hebat bagi vendor lain untuk memanfaatkannya, dan tidak akan merugikan pengguna atau pengembang apa pun. Pernahkah Anda melakukan hubungan bisnis dengan seseorang yang memperlakukan Anda tanpa kehormatan Saya pribadi yakin bahwa seseorang tidak perlu menginjak orang lain agar bisa maju dalam bisnis. Saya sendiri, dan teman-teman saya, telah menerima akhir dari urusan bisnis yang tidak terhormat pada satu saat dalam karir kami. Pada akhirnya, bagaimana Anda memutuskan untuk memperlakukan orang yang Anda berbisnis dengan terserah Anda. Tapi ingat, saat Anda berlayar bersama, Anda akan tersandung dalam riak Anda baik kehormatan maupun penghinaan.

Ikhtisar Ikhtisar Podcast Episode Intro. Tanggal rekaman: 9 September 2016. Russ Roberts: Casey, selamat datang kembali ke EconTalk. Casey Mulligan: Baiklah, saya sangat senang karena kami memiliki kebebasan untuk menikmati program seperti Anda. Russ Roberts: Ada sesuatu yang spesial dari Amerika Serikat. Dan saya mengatakan bahwa karena topik kami untuk hari ini adalah perjalanan terakhir Anda ke Kuba. Yang saya temukan menarik - Anda menuliskannya di blog, Supply and Demand Anda, dan juga memasang tautan ke pos itu. Bagaimana kabarmu Anda pergi ke Kuba Bagaimana Anda sampai di sana Karena meskipun ada beberapa pembatasan, tidak mudah untuk sampai ke sana, benar - adalah pemahaman saya. Casey Mulligan: Maksud saya, ada beberapa latar belakangnya. Saya telah mengajar ekonomi sektor publik di Chicago hampir sepanjang karir saya. Dan beberapa aspek yang menurut saya penting untuk dilihat - salah satunya, aspek demokrasi atau non-demokrasi sektor publik - apakah pemilihan mereka kompetitif atau tidak, dan aspek peraturan dan perencanaan. Dan, saya mengajar banyak dari mereka di kelas saya, tapi sebagian besar dari buku. Dan aku ingin melihatnya. Dan istri saya dan saya, belum lama ini, pergi ke China, mungkin ini adalah sebuah negara komunis dan kami dapat melihat beberapa hal tersebut dan mereka pasti memiliki aspek non-demokrasi. Tapi aspek perencanaannya sudah lama berlalu. Jadi kita bilang, mungkin kita harus pergi ke Kuba atau Korea Utara atau semacamnya. Pada saat itu belum jelas bagaimana mencapainya - apakah boleh diijinkan. Russ Roberts: Apakah istrimu seorang ekonom, Casey Casey Mulligan: Tidak. Russ Roberts: Konsep liburannya tidak biasa bagi beberapa orang: Hei, sayang, mari pergi ke kediktatoran yang mengerikan untuk liburan. Anda memiliki istri yang sangat pengertian, menurut saya. Casey Mulligan: Baiklah, kita jelas sudah bisa pulang ke rumah, jadi itu penting. Russ Roberts: Anda seorang suami yang baik. Jadi, bagaimanapun, Anda seharusnya sudah mencoba Korea Utara atau Kuba. Dan bagaimana Anda masuk ke Kuba Casey Mulligan: Baiklah, sepertinya pemerintah kita benar-benar membuka kesempatan bagi orang Amerika untuk pergi ke sana. Saya pikir orang-orang Kanada dan Jerman telah pergi ke sana lebih lama lagi. Bagaimanapun, mereka mulai muncul dalam kelompok tur sebagai tujuan yang mungkin. Jadi, jenis kalender kami berbaris, jadi kami pun pergi. We signed up to go. And in the next week we heard that our Mayor of Chicago was also going with his family and the Obamas were going as well. So, it must have been something that happened in terms of Americans getting access there--my understanding. Russ Roberts: Its party time. Mulligans, Obamas, and Emanuels head to Cuba and paradise. How long did you go for How long were you there for Casey Mulligan: We were there a week. Russ Roberts: And, just in terms of planning--can you get on the Internet and explore things about Cuba from the United States Can you do things like, I wonder what it would be interesting to look at. Where should I stay Where can I eat Or do you kind of have to arrange that on the fly once you got there Casey Mulligan: Well, both of those approaches can be taken, but I used a tour group that Id used before, and they really handle everything. And they had explained to me that--of course, they are very sensitive to their customers and what their customers like. Tend to, I guess, be older people. Americans. But the Cuban government presents them with, really a menu of things that they can do with the tour group: places they can go, people they can interview. And the tour group chooses from that menu. Russ Roberts: So, in that experience, how much freedom did you have to explore things or talk to people who were sort of not pre-approved by the tour group, through the government Casey Mulligan: We would have several hours--I would say, a day--that the tour, they didnt schedule things for us and therefore we could--we were free to wander off. You know, the police wouldnt stop us if we took a taxi into the middle of the country or just walked down the street and talked to people. Which we did, for sure: went in some stores. That was one of our main goals, was to try to see it unscripted. Russ Roberts: And, before we talk about what you saw, presumably you went to Cuba with some preconceived notions about their economy. You might call them biases. You could call them priors. How much do you think that colored what you saw when you were there and how you saw it Do you think, did you have, were you conscious of that when you were there And did you try to push back against that and look for things that might not agree with your priors Casey Mulligan: Well, um, I guess one of the priors I had with the Cuban people was to not like the Castros or the regime or the Party. And I learned that--maybe I dont like them but not quite in the way that I thought. I had thought--I know Che Guevara is very popular around the United States in certain circles, college students and so on. I had thought that maybe they wouldnt like guy. But they actually liked him, in various ways they thought he was a good example. He would roll up his sleeves and do the dirty work. That they were fortunate as citizens to do as well. So, I guess that was the biggest surprise that I had. And I started to understand that, you know, the Cuban Americans and the Cuban Cubans, they are different on this. And most of the exposure that I had had in terms of meeting people who were Cuban or reading what Cubans had to write about Cuba, they were from the Cuban America. And they are more angry toward the regime and the people living there. Russ Roberts: You know, part of that is selection bias, obviously. Some of it could be--by the angers people being more likely to leave, perhaps. It could be the fact that--once you are there, you want to make the best of it. Or it could be just that those people who are left behind have better lives for a variety of reasons, care about different things and are somewhat content. So, what you wrote is that you sensed a reasonable or quite a bit of pride in the Cuban system, from the people, at least, that you talked to. Is that accurate Casey Mulligan: Um, its a little bit exaggerated. I witnessed some proud moments for them. They--in particular, an episode that I read about and that people talk about was, in the early 1960s, I guess it was Che Guevaras idea but certainly Castro supported it--that illiteracy program for the country. And so they took kids that were not really high school in the cities--and they were illiterate, because they were in high school and they were in the city. And they sent them out to the country, to help with the farm work during the day. Which Im sure the farmers appreciated. And then teach the farmers to read at night. And then that--that was , a 9-month program or something like that. And then at the end each of the farmers wrote a letter to Castro, you know, with their new skills. And the--teenage--people who--the teenagers are proud of that today. Of course, they are not teenagers any more. And the rural people, I think, look favorably on that. And it was really the governments idea. So, that I thought people were genuinely proud of. There was other talk about things like, Well, we, the Cubans participated in this International Congress and that International Congress. I dont perceive that they were all that proud of it. They were all just parroting some of the bullet points that I think the State Newspaper puts out. Russ Roberts: You do hear--well talk later about health care. But you hear that--when I debate or discuss Cuban economics with sympathizers, they always mention the high literacy rates and the great health care. Well talk about health care in a minute. But lets just start with some basics of just walking around the street. One thing you remarked on is that many of the buildings you saw were not doing very well. Tell us what you saw. And why you think--what explains it. Casey Mulligan: Yeah. Right out of the airport, I noticed--the very first thing I noticed was the complete lack of advertisements. Thats the first thing I saw. And we can come back to that. But then, within a few minutes after that, I was amazed at how crumbling the buildings were. At first, you know, the airport, you land, and first thought, Okay, maybe were in a rough neighborhood, or whatever. And of course the buildings arent going to be that great. Russ Roberts: Yeah. The buildings near OHare or Midway in Chicago sometimes dont look so healthy, either. But, go ahead. Casey Mulligan: So, then, but when we got to the waterfront it was like the same story: the buildings were, you know, falling down. They were--and sometimes they were half a pile of rubble, sometimes a whole pile of rubble. And paint was long gone--they were last painted in 1958, maybe. They were really in bad shape. Very little new stuff. There were some renovated things, especially around where they took the Pope. But people were living in these buildings that were falling apart. And if it rained--and it did rain a number of times when we were there, especially in the afternoon--you know, it would fall apart even more. And some people would hit the point where they had to be moved out, because it was no longer safe by any stretch of the word to live in those premises any more. Russ Roberts: So, thats hard to believe. Right For someone who hasnt been there. Ive never been to Cuba. I wrote a book that had a Cuban element in it and I did a lot of reading for that. Ive seen a lot of pictures, which tend to show colorful cars and interesting-looking buildings. The impression you are giving is that its, the city, say, Havana, is in literal disrepair. Its not like, Oh, I saw a building that was falling apart. Its like, common. Is that correct Casey Mulligan: Yes, its common. And the other thing that came to my mind, I had read this book on rent control, a number of people contributing: Milton Friedman, Ed Olsen was one of the main editors I think maybe Walter Block was, as well. And that book, on kind of alternating pages, they would show a picture of a bombed-out part of a city of that had been bombed and then theyd show a picture, part of a city, that had been subject to rent control. And they were trying to--they asked the reader: Can you guess which is which And it was hard. And I actually know Ed Olsen a little bit. I thought, Boy, you guys are really exaggerating. I was a little surprised that Ed would do that. But thats the first thing I thought of when I got there, is like, Wow. These places kind of look like theyve been bombed. But there have been no bombs. Its been an economic system that acted like a bomb. Russ Roberts: I think--part of the reason--I owned that book. I dont know if I can put my hands on it, but I used to have that, I had that book at one point in my life. And being a free market guy and a big anti-price-control guy, I always loved that book. But you have to face the fact that in San Francisco and in New York City and Im sure, maybe Chicago, I dont know, there is rent control. Now, its not rent control the way it was originally implemented in some cities. They put a lot of exceptions in, and a lot of ways to create some incentives while trying to keep the rent low for certain tenants. So I think part of the reason that book seems so provocative is that its hard for us to relate to it if we dont know the historical examples that those are capturing. Right Where there were--the exceptions. You are suggesting, though, that in Cuba, there is zero incentive to take care of the buildings. Who owns them, and why arent they being repaired Why arent people fixing them Casey Mulligan: Well, ownership is a little blurry. For most of the regime, the State owned it, but the people who lived there, they had the right to live there. So, when the time came for them to move, they would receive some kind of payment from the government. So, you could say they were selling it to the government. Or you could say it was a bonus for vacating their property, either way. But they couldnt sell it to a third party. And the payment wasnt based on how well they maintained it, or anything. Then, pretty recently--Id say in the last 5 years--they, people are allowed to sell and buy property: I think you can have a maximum of 2 or 3 or something like that. So there is a resale market now. So that is one aspect of the property rights. For most of the time it wasnt really owned by people. The other aspect of it is that property rights in the apartment buildings, I learned, was unclear. Of course, the inside of your apartment would be yours. But, what about the common areas What about the roof Did that belong to the people who live on the top floor Or everybody It wasnt clear. So not much got done about keeping rooves under repair. And actually some of these buildings, as they start to fall apart, you get new common areas that are--its hard to--you know, the property lines arent so clear when the building is splitting apart and crumbling. And so you have areas of these buildings, its not clear who owns them. But people are using them. Russ Roberts: And you talk about this phenomenon of dividing the story of a building essentially into two stories, creating apartments--I dont know how to describe it exactly. You want to try The Barbecue phenomenon Casey Mulligan: Yeah. So, the buildings there were really--most of them were built either in the 1920s or the 1950s. There were kind of two building booms. And in terms of the size and structure, it was pretty similar to what we would build here. People kind of like kind of large rooms. Maybe a little bit taller: so what you would have due to the heat and everything. But now, people dont live in that kind of luxury. They really want a smaller place. And so they divide these places up. You can imagine putting in a wall. But then they also put in a new ceiling between the old floor and the old ceiling. And they call that upper floor, if you will, or they might call it a loft: They call that a Barbecue, because it gets hotter up there in that top half of the room. And then they will have, there will be a little hole in the new floorceiling, and a ladder up the wall that people would climb up there. And they tend to do their sleeping up there, and their, maybe some storage. So theyve expanded the square footage by really a factor of 2. Not the cubic footage, of course, but the square footage. Russ Roberts: I was--I found it poignant when you talked about there are some special regulations for boats. Tell us what those are and how you found out--fishing boats--how you found out about them. Casey Mulligan: Well, they--Im actually quite interested in boats just as recreation, and so I wanted to see what the boating situation there. Id heard something about, well, its not easy to get a boat, if you are a Cuban citizen. And so there, I looked around. And also I asked about the fishing. And theres not a whole lot of fishing. And the fisherman that I saw were in very small boats. Smaller that what I would call a rowboat. They kind of operated like a rowboat, but it was a very small boat. I was amazed that you could fish without getting swamped. But, yeah, I would see guys out there in the morning in these very small boats. And I would presume that the reason they were allowed to have a boat like that was because you cant take it anywhere off shore. For example, to Miami. So, thats what they were doing. And as a result, the fishing industry is not very productive. I mean, how much fish can you catch in a little boat like that And so, amazingly, a country like that imports its fish. To the extent fish is eaten in Cuba, its going to be--the vast majority is going to be imported. I mean, even while I saw a fishing tournament there, that was all foreigners. So, they held a tournament and that looked like fun and people brought their boats from Miami or maybe Europeans who happened to be in the area. And these were nice fishing boats. And they caught a lot of fish. Recreationally. But the Cubans dont have things like that. Russ Roberts: What did you eat while you were there And how did you eat it I know there are restaurants in peoples homes. What kind of--how did that work on the tour Casey Mulligan: It was--I really liked the tour company: they took care of us well--so, we were not eating like the locals. And a number of the stops were in private restaurants, that were maybe part of somebodys house. Theyve recently allowed, in the last 3-4 years theyve allowed restaurants to be in an actual business, you know, with the boss and a payroll. So we met employees who worked for the restaurant and where were an official employee. And their customers were tourists. They are nice restaurants. They--every once in a while they would apologize that they wouldnt have this flavor or that flavor because it is hard to find the ingredients. So, even in the fancy places we saw an element of that. And even an idea of the pricing was about what it would cost in Chicago to go to a nice restaurant, so that would be--you would be talking a months wages for the Cubans. So you can imagine if they have trouble finding ingredients at that level, that, how hard it is for Cubans in general to find ingredients to make dishes that they might like. Russ Roberts: Did you see any black market cash transactions Kind of a personal question. Maybe you dont want to answer that. Casey Mulligan: Well, Yeah I am just trying to think in my mind how much of it was tourist-specific versus locals. Um-- Russ Roberts: I assume if you want to buy something in Cuba, you can use dollars--American dollars. Is that correct Casey Mulligan: No--not literally. They have a currency there that is only used by the tourists that--1-1 with the U.S. dollar, it is pegged to the U.S. dollar--theres a hefty fee that comes out. So, but its-- Russ Roberts: Hmm. Casey Mulligan: So, but its designed to be 1-to-1 with the U.S. dollar. I understand that there are stores--I didnt go in any of these stores but there are stores that the locals can use dollars. So--and they would be getting--I understand they can use regular U.S. dollars and they are getting those U.S. dollars from relatives in the United States. Russ Roberts: Did you get any beef Casey Mulligan: Yes--yes, we had beef. All the beef is imported. I think its--100 of the beef is imported because the to a cow. Russ Roberts: So, why is that They have cows. Right Casey Mulligan: They do. Russ Roberts: A small number. Not a big number. But there are cows . Casey Mulligan: They do have cows. They are government-owned. And they are for milk--which there is quite a shortage of milk. But they are for milk. And they wouldnt want a non-owner of the cow to kill it and use it for the beef. Russ Roberts: Listeners recently complained I dont quite Hayek, my favorite Hayek quote, enough but it does remind me: The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they can imagine they can design. There you have this bizarre world of state ownership, worrying about milk. These strange consequences: cant get beef. When I read your account of this, I was thinking back to a story--I actually found it on the web, from 2004, from the Chicago Tribune . It says, In communist Cuba, only the state is allowed to slaughter cattle and sell the meat. Citizens who kill a cow--even if they raised it themselves--can get a 10-year prison sentence. Anyone who transports or sells a poached animal can get locked up for 8 years. My brother-in-law got a 12-year prison sentence for killing 12 cows, said an accountant who lives in the cattle-raising region. But its not Russ:--this is the crazy part-- unheard of for Cubans to sneak into a pasture at night and butcher a cow on the spot. Residents have been known to descend on a cow struck by lightning, carving it up in minutes even though the meat often is charred and they risk a fine if caught by police.. The same thing can happen if a cow is hit by a car or dies of illness or malnutrition, in giving birth or of old age, even though residents admit the law requires them to leave the carcass alone and notify local officials. Then--it talks about someone who works for a large dairy farm who recounted, scores of people scrambled to a nearby railway with knives and machetes when word spread that more than a dozen cattle had been struck by a passing train. So, at least then . some of the--I dont, that just is a crazy story. There was some cattle, I assume, raised for some kind of beef, maybe, not just for milk. Not just cows for milk. Do you think Casey Mulligan: Um, I saw a number of cows. They didnt have a lot of beef on them. But it could be that theyre doing that. The types of regulations that you mention from that story--the Cubans volunteered those sort of rules. Even when we were there they were saying they were tough on the cows and accounting for them, and when they died and why they died. They are more interested in the circumstances of a dead cow than a dead person. Russ Roberts: Thats unusual. Russ Roberts: Lets talk about grocery stores. Did you go in some Could you go in some Casey Mulligan: We were discouraged from that. Its what our tour company told us. And then, I did go in some and when I would go in there would be Cubans who discouraged us. But we went in. Now, you called it a grocery store. They are on a rationing system, so the families get a book even to this day: they get a ration book that gives them permission to buy a certain number of units at the State price. And so these stores that I went into, we can call them a grocery store: they just had grocery items that the government was distributing with the ration books. I believe you could also buy over and above your ration at another, higher price. There wasnt a whole lot in these stores. Maybe a dozen or two dozen distinct items. They came in very large packages--so, a big can of mangoes was one of items I saw. Russ Roberts: Just like Costco. Casey Mulligan: Cuban bakery. (Photo courtesy of C. Rooks. See his comment in the comment section below.) Note tall soda bottles in upper right corner. Its the same principle as Costco, I think, because they want it to be cheap. So, minimum of packaging and so on. Eggs, they were in trays they were very large trays Ive never seen such big trays. I think they were 30 or 40 to a tray. Three liter bottles of soda, tall bottles. Items like that. And they would be--and I think milk. I didnt see milk, but I understand that the milk was rationed to the members of the family who were less than 7 years old: they get a certain number of units. Not enough for that child to use for the entire month, but there are a certain number of units theyd buy at the state price. And the state price was--I dont know--like an eighth, lets say and eighth of what it would be in the United States, say, for an egg, on a per-egg basis. Of course, you are not getting refrigeration you are not getting packaging. You are not getting helpful store hours or even a place to park or anything like that. But, that was about the pricing. Russ Roberts: So, I once hosted a Russian family when they had first arrived in the United States and our family was assigned to them through the Jewish Federation. A lot of Soviet Jews and Russian Jews came out at various times and to ease their transition to American life, sometimes there would be a family assigned to help them. We volunteered to do that. And one of the more interesting parts of that was taking them to the grocery store. And I may have told th story before, but there were two things that were fun about it. One was the produce section just was a source of tremendous fascination and amazement to them. And then the second part was that, though we didnt speak Russian and they didnt speak English, the mother of the family communicated she wanted to make bread, and she wanted to buy yeast. So, yeast is a very small item: its physically small its hard to find in a store. A couple of obvious places to look. We looked and we couldnt see it. So we asked a person, one of the employees, to help if there was any extra yeast in the back. And they went in the back and found some and brought it out to me. And the Russian woman looked at me with like a new sense of respect. Like, Ah. Hes important. He gets the yeast. And I tried to explain to her that really anyone could get the yeast. They just hadnt put it out, and they would now put it out for everybody. And I just wonder, when I think about your experience of those primitive groceries, whatever you want to call them: Do the people of Cuba know that their relatives, say, in Miami or just anywhere in America or lots of other more developed countries, theres plenty of food to buy all the time to buy when you want Casey Mulligan: Oh, yeah. They know that. I also noted--I guess I could have figured it out before I got there--but I also noted that the very large fraction of people who have family just in the United States, or certainly abroad, and almost all of them would volunteer why they werent gone yet. And they would give an explanation. And when they were going: Im a few years from retirement then Im going to go to my daughters house. So they know. They have immediate family there: thats one way that they know. Recently, the immediate family has been allowed to visit a fair bit, and they come back with suitcases full of stuff. You cant put liquid milk in a suitcase, but a lot of powdered milk goes in a suitcase. Television sets. You can bring anything--5 bags in. And so a lot of the things that they have came from an American store. Russ Roberts: I think when the, in the Cold War when you would tell Russians, Communists, that--I should mention, by the way for those listening at home if you dont know: Cuba is a Communist country, and its run by a dictator who kind of through the bureaucracy who owns what where, prices, etc. availability. But when youd say to people during the Cold War, to Russians, that Americans live better, I think--or when Khrushchev came here--I think in the 1950s, maybe early 1960s, it was early 1960s--I think he assumed that the profusion of material wellbeing that he saw was a stage show. There was a thing in the Soviet Union called Potemkin Village, where visitors would come and be shown a thriving place that was a sham, a theater, to deceive people about how easy life was there. Potemkin backwards--I had to write it down, but its Nikmetop--I wonder if people thought, Soviets who came to the United States thought they were getting a Nikmetop Village: a sort of anti-Potemkin-Village of fake prosperity but in fact was real. Is there--its hard to know, of course, you probably didnt talk in detail with people--but I wonder, when they see things on TV or when they hear from their relatives, that they think its exaggerated Of course, immigrants to the United States, in the late 19th century, were told the streets were paved with gold. They were told how fabulous it was. And of course it wasnt true. It was exaggerated. But it wasnt so exaggerated compared to, say, rural Poland, where many of those immigrants came from. And similarly I would think it would be hard to exaggerate the difference between a thriving American city in Florida, anywhere in Florida, versus Savannah. Casey Mulligan: I didnt sense that kind of attitude. Like I said, a lot of them were holding American goods. They had put their own hands on them. So I dont know that there was any ground to be skeptical. Russ Roberts: Im just thinking--I think if you took--you know, if you went to Costco or a modern, giant, Safeway, standard, Walmart, supermarket in the United States, and you took someone from Havana there, I think that gap between the profusion and the reality they live under would be shocking. Casey Mulligan: Yeah. Theres no doubt about that. Its not in their face, the difference. They may be aware of it intellectually, but its not in their face. Thats true. Russ Roberts: So, lets talk philosophically for a minute. When Elix00E1n Gonzx00E1lez was taken to Florida, out of Cuba, and, if I remember correctly--I think his mother may have died on the trip Or anyway, he was with relatives in Florida. And his father requested that he be returned. We never knew or couldnt know whether his father was under pressure from Castro to just say that--this was in the 1990s. And the U.S. government made the decision to return Elian to his father. And this was a cause for a lot of conversation. Ill never forget, though, that one pundit said he was lucky to have the opportunity to grow up in a country that was not as materialistic as the United States, not as focused on money, more egalitarian, more equal distribution of income. And so, he was fortunate. I found that to be a bizarre thing to say, for a lot of reasons. One of them being that the material wellbeing in the United States, which is what we are talking about right now, relative to Cuba is only one of the many reasons that I think most people would prefer to stay here than live in Cuba. And the guards face south. They keep people from leaving. They dont stop people from coming in to Cuba. There arent--theres not a line. The line is to get out, not to get in. But, did you have any reflections on that, in terms of just the wellbeing There are certainly things about a free market system that can be tough on ones emotional wellbeing. It is competitive it tends to, can emphasize material things unnecessarily, overly. Did you have any thoughts on that while you were there Casey Mulligan: Yeah I was interested in that. I was looking hard and asking about, you know, Are there people who came back Are there people who, they came from another Latin American country and chose to come to Cuba I had trouble finding those people. So thats one aspect, is, they are voting with their feet and like you said, the feet, oars, and the boats seem to go in one direction. The other thing that I wasnt so aware of: I was always aware you had really incomprehensibly large famines under Stalin and under Mao. But not really in Cuba. But I heard a lot of people talking about this Special Period, which they described as starving. They didnt starve to death. But they talked about the malnutrition that they endured, the lengths that they would go to, to get food. The father may have walked 20 miles out in the country to tend a little garden that he had put together because there was just no food to find for the family in the city. And they vividly remember: Anyone my age or even younger vividly remembered what they considered--being very hungry. Literally hungry. And worried about survival. Most of them did survive in the sense of not dropping dead from starvation. But they were very worried about surviving. And thats not something that you run into in America too often. Russ Roberts: Yeah I dont want to--well, I just think its important to make clear that--especially as an economist--that money isnt everything. And material wellbeing isnt everything. But its--you dont want to be hungry. And you do like a roof over your head, especially if its raining. But when I was thinking about Elian Gonzalez, I was thinking that--its not so much that hed have more stuff --hed have more pairs of shoes if had stayed in Miami--which he would have, I suspect. And he would have had more video games and more toys--and more food, more beef, etc. But thats not really what makes life better . It is part of why people leave poor countries to come to a richer country, certainly. But for me, when I was thinking about that 5-year-old boy, my thought was. Which place will let him flourish Which place will let him express himself Which place will let his creativity come alive Which place will his life have more meaning And thats a tougher question. I think there are parts of it that are pretty open and shut, but there are parts of it that arent. And Im really asking--when you saw--and of course you cant see this in a week. But walking around, did you get the feeling that it was a somewhat happy place Or a dysfunctional place Or is it just a place where people dont happen to have nice apartments or food Or is there something more going on beneath the surface thats more important than food and money that was part of their lives Casey Mulligan: Well, they definitely had part of their lives than were more than the food and the money. Im not sure I viewed it as attractive, necessarily, but no doubt about that. There is a thriving arts area there: people dancing, those sort of activities. Not everybody is into that by any means, but there is a segment of people who exercise that. Um, I did kind of think--when, Id been to the Dominican Republic, when I was there, and I had asked, you can guess what year it was, Id asked If youd take me to where Sammy Sosa grew up, which was a very poor area piled up with garbage, really. And hed seen the people there and they are the people--I saw as--they appeared happy to me. They were smiling. The Cuban people werent as happy as that. Its not that they were running around complaining or anything like that. But I made kind of that comparison. They are--they ought to be--they are struggling. So, there are very few vehicles for them. So they are walking. And it is hot. And there arent many buses. And the buses that are there are just overflowing, literally overflowing with people. And thats what they are dealing with every day. Russ Roberts: But thats what they are used to. My parents grew up in Memphis in the 1930s without air conditioning. Which would be unbearable for me. But, to them, they didnt think of it that way. So the fact that they walk in the heat--I dont know, do they care Is it really a source of--is it dispiriting to them I dont know. Casey Mulligan: It didnt look like they were enjoying themselves as much as the Dominicans were, in Sammy Sosas neighborhood. Russ Roberts: What did you learn When you think back on the trip, you saw some things that you hadnt seen. You got some first-hand knowledge of life in this peculiar, publicly-run--it is in some sense a police state but my impression is its not a police state like the Nazis or Stalins time. Its not as fearsome. You cant--I assume you cant criticize the regime much. But people seem to go about their lives or I assume--you didnt mention it--they dont seem to be in fear. So you got to observe this firsthand. What did you learn besides--what was valuable to you from the experience Casey Mulligan: Im not sure where to begin with that. I can think of some items, like--I learned how--I call it the Castros or call it the regime or the other revolutionaries, how they dealt with opposition. And its really very different than Stalin and Mao. Because Stalin and Mao, they had the mass purges. And these huge famines. And that took care of a lot of their opponents. Thats not what happened in Cuba--that they migrated. Of course, I was aware of the migrants. I probably should have mentioned: my aunt moved from Cuba to in 1959. But she is just one example of many people who were on the opposite side of Castro and Che and everybody, and they left. Russ Roberts: Well, I think they killed a bunch of people and imprisoned them in the early days, for sure. So I dont think it was like just a peaceful migration. Casey Mulligan: Well, the reason my aunt left was so they didnt get killed . But it--I think its on a much smaller scale than the Stalin and the Mao. And I think migration was an option. And actually, the dynamics of the migration, I found pretty interesting. I learned that there really is a wedge thats been driven between the Cubans outside of Cuba and the Cubans inside. Its a strange relationship because of course the Cubans outside are sending money to those inside, and even coming to visit, and bringing stuff. Although not for the entire society. Especially the blacker Cubans would have, many, much less likely to have American contacts. But, the Americans in Cuba are really angry at Castro, to this day. Russ Roberts: You mean the Cubans in America. Casey Mulligan: Yeah, in America. Maaf. The Cubans in America are really angry. And they still remember that, Thats my house. Thats my farm that you took from me. Or from my father or brother or uncle. And they are angry about that. And thats probably some of the source of American policy against Cuba. The Cubans there arent angry in that way. In fact, maybe some of them-- Russ Roberts: Well, thats because they are living in the farm where--some of them were the beneficiaries of it. But you are making a deeper point. I apologize. Casey Mulligan: But thats another interesting dynamic of it. So, there may be living--in what in 1958 was somebody elses house or somebody elses farm. And I think some of them view the Castros today as maybe the only things standing between them and having to give it back. Russ Roberts: Yeah. Casey Mulligan: And so thats--you can think of it from Castros point of view, you know, taking care of his opponents with the migration solution rather than the murder solution, is different . And may be part of the reason why he outlasted, or part of his regime outlasted the Communist regimes in China and in Russia--the Soviet Union. Russ Roberts: Lets talk about the embargo. Which I have long been in favor of getting rid of. And President Obama has recently, at least, lifted some aspects of it--I dont know to what degree yet and how long that will take. But certainly we are on a different path. And as you pointed out, Cuban Americans in the United States, particularly in Florida, were very adamant about that embargo. And probably the reason it existed. And certainly felt very strongly about it and were very upset--have been upset with the prospect of it lifting. But it seems to me that it has been a perennial excuse for Castro as to why his country has not done as well, say, as Puerto Rico, which you write about. Or other similar places over the time period since the Cuban Revolution of 1959. And so, what are your thoughts on the embargo And did you hear much about it while you were there, from Cubans Casey Mulligan: Yeah--but there--before I went there, I guess, I would have been inclined to approximate--I would empathize that it was an approximation. But I would approximate the impact of the embargo as zero. They can just trade-- Russ Roberts: Because they can import from other countries, obviously. Casey Mulligan: Yeah. The goods take a different route and Whats the big deal kind of would have been my attitude, before I went there. And now I--Im able to --I would say that there is a real effect of the embargo on the standard of living of the people. Maybe more than transaction costs or some way to trivialize it. So thats kind of my analysis of it. The people talked about the Embargo a lot. But they said that, you know, the Embargo, it has an effect on us but lets not misunderstand that as the only problem or even the Number One problem that we have. And they even explained to me that--Raul, not Fidel, but Raul had been saying the same thing--like, lets not blame the Embargo for our problems. I figure where Rauls coming from is that the Embargo might get lifted and then he doesnt want to backpedal too far. So this is a way of pre-empting that, probably. Russ Roberts: But that really makes the point that the Embargo was a very powerful, potentially propaganda weapon, for the Castros over the last 50 years, 60 years. And that getting rid of it is going to make them--exposes them. It says, Okay. Now its up to you. Youve got no excuses. Your policies are on the line. And, my view--you write about the fact that Internet access is not very good. Its limited. But, you know, the Internet and other tourists, people like you going there--its hard to sustain that regime. And that level of control of peoples lives: where they work, what they make, and where they live--in a modern era. Its going to be very challenging. I just cant see the system sustaining itself for, say, in 20 years. In maybe 10 years I think it will be essentially--theyll start like the Chinese theyll open up certain things. And then theyll lose control of it--and Cuba will change. Casey Mulligan: Can I be a devils advocate a little bit Russ Roberts: Yeah, sure. Casey Mulligan: There is this series of books coming out every other year called Cuban Communism . I have the 11th edition. I think theres 12 or 13 of them. So, this has been going on for a period of 20 years or something like that. These--every edition says what you said. Russ Roberts: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Casey Mulligan: And-- Russ Roberts: I hate to laugh. I laugh at it myself. Its a tragedy. I dont really--theres nothing funny about it. But it is funny from a Social Science perspective. Casey Mulligan: And thats kind of one of the things I was looking for--is one of--that regime has passed some kind of market test. Okay, its not a free market in everything like that. But they have held their position for a long time. I think of the Khadafis--you know, we all like to say Khadafi Muammar Gaddafi, Libya--Econlib Ed. was a bad guy. But he held his job for a long time. He was doing something that was of some value. And now that hes gone we kind of see the value that he was delivering. And thats one thing I was kind of looking for--was there, are people gaining some kind of value out of this regime And what is it And I dont know the full answer. But like I mentioned, the story of the literacy program. There are elements of that that there was some pride that they had. And, you know, we got to think about the alternative: when the Castros regime is gone, whats going to be there instead And is it going to be a Libya or is it going to be a modern, 21st century China I dont know. Russ Roberts: Well, we dont know what a modern 21st century China is going to look like in 5 years, either. Theyve got a different set of problems. And its not clear that their current path is sustainable, to me, anyway. Russ Roberts: But I want to go back to this question of, um, passing a market test. Its not much of a market test, right If I have guns and I can exploit people and force them, to--basically, enslave them in the sense that I can extract profit from them--I can keep their wages artificially low I can tax them and I can keep the proceeds from my buddies--that system, which is a huge part of human history--right--democratic free market regimes are the exception, not the rule. But most of human history is about the exploitation by the powerful of the power-less. I dont consider that much of a market test, other than no one else came along and took it away from them. So, I dont--the fact that there are good things about the system--I dont see them--they are not obvious to me that the regime has provided, that has created a stable system. To me, its more that: they had the power they used it to enrich themselves and to enrich their friends who kept them in power. As the Castros. And, yeah, maybe they believed whatever their ideology was. It doesnt matter. But I dont really see the longevity of the Castro regime as telling me anything about how effective they were in making the citizens happy. Maybe pacifying them. Saya tidak tahu It doesnt seem to be much of a--not a very attractive market test to me. Casey Mulligan: Again, I think of Libya, or even the Saddam Hussein examples. That, um, when they were forcibly removed externally, things got a lot worse. Russ Roberts: Yeah, but thats not the same point. Right I agree with you, but-- Casey Mulligan: --but a lot of people who--A lot of people who lived under them understood that the alternative was even worse. Russ Roberts: But its not a menu. You dont get to choose. If you said--I think the mistake we make in evaluating these as observers and social scientists and politicaly scientists is to say, Gee, wouldnt it be great if--if Cuba were like Florida, theyd be thriving. Well, thats silly. They cant be like Florida. We dont have the road map to get there from here. And so, if we, if, just for example, if I think the United States did try to assassinate Castro in the 1960s, shortly after the Revolution, or at least considered it and if we had successfully done that, yes: Certainly they might have been replaced by something worse. So, that says, Be careful in what you wish for. Dont always be confident that getting rid of something bad leads to something better. But I dont think thats the same thing as saying: Because they kept away something worse, say, by being in power, that they provided something of value. I mean, for example, the crime rates are low in dictatorships often, because police are everywhere and nobody wants to go to the prisons and its a well-known factoid, I think its probably even true. So, does that tell you--thats a side benefit Thats a silver lining of a very dark cloud That in, you know, Communist Russia or Nazi Germany there wasnt that much theft or murder. But that isnt what kept the regime going. It wasnt like, Well, you know, wed rather have freedom but if we had freedom wed have a high murder rate so we dont want to have that. Its just that thats one of the side effects of having a dictatorship or a totalitarian state, is that you dont get a lot of murder: you dont get gang warfare, say, or tribal warfare in a system like Iraqs. Okay, but that system is not designed to do that. The leaders arent giving that as a way to please the market. Its just a side-benefit of their own exploitation. Casey Mulligan: I agree with that. They need support--you say they have guns but you cant have a gun pointed at everybodys head at every moment. You need some kind of support. And people who are on the margin of support have to think about: Do I want to be unsupported Do I want to slip the poison in the guys lunch or whatever action they might take And perhaps some of them are aware of--maybe Id be doing more harm than good here. I resist I obviously harm myself and Im going to harm my country as well, so Im not going to do it. Russ Roberts: Yeah, I understand that. Im not convinced that, when we look at totalitarian, authoritarian regimes that their stability is--thinking of it as passing a market test is the same way we think of--I dont know--Walmart doing well for a long period of time. It just doesnt strike me as the right metaphor. Saya tidak tahu Casey Mulligan: Okay. Well agree to disagree on that one. Russ Roberts: Okay. Russ Roberts: Are you going to go back You want to go back And, finally, do you have any--despite my optimism, which empirically has to be questioned because of the point you made in the book suggesting for a long time that this is coming. This actually reminds me of the sign in the bar: Free Beer Tomorrow. Its a permanent sign: Freedom Tomorrow. But I do think it will come. And Im also reminded of this quote about Marx: He was so far-sighted that his predictions havent even come true yet. So, Im going to fall into my--Im going to make my Marxist prediction that freedom will come to the Cuban people in slow and perhaps steady ways over the next 10, 20 years. But I could be wrong. So, are you optimistic and will you go back And what would you expect to find if you did go back in the next few years Casey Mulligan: Ive wondered about whether I would go back. I guess Im on the margin there. Probably would. But its not on the top of my lists of anything, I guess. Optimistic in what sense For the Cuban people I am optimistic that they are going to have more opportunities to leave, and you know, thats a choice that they might be able to make that they wouldnt have made in the old days, or wouldnt have been available. So at that level, I think freedom is tomorrow for a number of them. Whether there will be freedom on that island--its harder to say. I definitely hope for it, but that doesnt make it happen. 59:00 Russ Roberts said, Im going to make my Marxist prediction that freedom will come to the Cuban people in slow and perhaps steady ways over the next 10, 20 years. Hayek said wealth and poverty were the result of moral rules of behavior. Im still trying to work through the implications of that argument. If that is the case, then there would be no cause for optimism that the Cuban society would spontaneously increase in wealth over time without the introduction and adoption of new morals. I can think of at least five places new morals might emerge in a third world economy: 1) The internet unlikely in Cuba given their primitive infrastructure 2) Christian Missionaries -- Islamic missionaries wont do. There are no extremely wealthy Islamic countries. Buddhist missionaries might work but I think Buddhist missionary is a contradiction. Given the success of Israel, Jewish Missionaries might work, but Ive never heard of a Jewish missionary and Im not able to know how successful Israel would be if the USA didnt give it billions of dollars of aid each year. Hindu missionaries. no good. There are no wealthy Hindu nations either. 3) Trade - when trade barriers drop, a tiny fraction of the Cuban society would be exposed to new types and rules of behavior. Domestic traders exposed to the new behaviors may choose to adopt some of them. Those early adopters would then serve as examples for other Cubans to emulate. 4) Television - learning morals from actors and artists is probably not the best idea ever. 5) Schools If the government runs the schools then presumably the teachers are already well versed in the morals of the government planners. The government would, therefore, have to change its morals before the school could, but where would the government learn said new morals Theyd have to travel, which is expensive, and were talking about very poor countries, so thats not likely to happen. I think Hayeks proposed causal chain of Moral rules causing wealth differences is likely true. Therefore, I dont think there is any cause to believe a poor country would spontaneously improve itself naturally. Moral rules have a habit of being both stable and self-propagating. However, if you really wanted to move, say, Cuba along, the easiest route, from what I can deduce, is to open trade with their port citiesinitiallyand allow Christian Missionaries to relocate within the country. SaveyourSelf: Whens the last time a countrys economic performance improved as a result of an influx in Christian missionaries Cuba used to be, of course, a much better economic performer than it is now. I dont think their current problems arose in any direct fashion because of a decline in personal Christianity. I normally dont comment, as a non-economist I am here to learn but on the subject of my native country there is definitively some knowledge and experiences I can share that will help others better understand Cuba. First I will commend Russ moral clarity and intuitions on this issue, even though you have not been there you have a very good grasp of what is going on except perhaps with your optimistic view of the future of Cuba. Something that comes up several times in the conversation is how the regime has managed to keep control for such a long time. It all comes up to the totalitarian nature of the regime with its total control over the population down to the block level in the cities. The government is the only employer, the only educator, the owner of all media, you have to register where you live and you cannot move at will, you have to carry an internal passport where all the details of your live are shown, all that enforced not just by the police but by your boss at work, your neighbor that runs the block Committee for the Defense of the Revolution and the myriad other organization to which you have to belong (trade union, womens league, pioneers sort of boy scouts for the kids, students leagues, professional or artistic guilds) all the so called transmission belts of the Communist Party. At the end of the day this system had created not just control but a web of complicity and shame in which most people in one way or the other have participated and which not only creates fear and paranoia about being punished if you dont support enthusiastically the regime but also fear of retribution for you own actions in support of the regime. Add to it the constant propaganda which even if it cannot bury the harsh realities of the country and the much better life outside it is enough to confuse, obfuscate and most importantly paralyze. This is the state of the population at large, judge by yourself if this constituency has been formed by any positive intercourse between the rulers and the ruled. Of course at the very beginning there where some things that appeared to be positive, some actually were as the literacy campaign or the vaccination campaigns, some fake like the illusory transfer of titles of property to urban renters and small tenant peasants but just to buy time while the wheels of control were put in place all combined with harsh repression including the executions by fire squads of a few thousand people and the internment of several other thousands in an island that at that time had only 7 million people. I am not going to said that the regime has been as barbaric as Stalin, Mao,the Kims or Pol Pot, but always remember we are dealing with just shades of barbarism here and also remember that if Castro and Che had their way the whole island along with a good chunk of the US, Europe and Russia would have been incinerated in a nuclear war, that just tells you about the true nature of the beast. Will continue in another post. Now on more specific topics. I will not assign much value to the opinions people are willing to share with unknown strangers. I once gave a candid opinion to one exchange student from Mexico in Cuba, the guy unaware of the consequences challenged his minder with what I had told him. well I learnt my lesson and counted my lucky stars that I was allowed to keep my job. Also remember that people there have been thoroughly indoctrinated at school, do not have easy access to alternative information,especially to different systems of thought and are under a constant barrage of propaganda reinforcing the regime mythology. Even if they can grasp the failures of Fidel Castro many still think inside the regime framework so that they may think that Raul is better (but thwarted by his brother) or that (thankfully) dead Che or Camilo would have been better and so on. I realized communism was bad and not working but as to the how it was that I only got it when I came to the US in 1995 as a 38 years old, this brings me to the differences between Cubans in the island and Cuban-Americans. There is a difference between the first wave which didnt lived much or belonged to the upper middle-class and those of us who came later and were raised under the regime, often like me in the family of regime sympathizers or who were at some point part of the regime machinery. Among the latter there is more understanding and also some shame, less hatred of the common folk of which we were part, but no less hatred, perhaps even more of the rulers that not just took from us things but our dignity and self-respect. Cubans in the island are still uninformed at best, confused, not free to share what they truly think but it transpires as Mulligan perceived in the certain sadness they show in comparison with the Dominican poor. Went to Cuba for my honeymoon in March of 2001. Flew to Jamaica for a few days, to Cuba for a week, and back to Jamaica for a few days, then back to NYC. (Was living in NYC at the time). Zero problem traveling, they even had a special passport stamp for Americans that didnt identify the country and they stamped it on a certain page. Had no problem traveling, saw lots of Americans in Cuba while we were there. We were required to stay in a state hotel for 1 night, the rest of the time we spent in peoples homes. At the time it was permissible for Cubans to rent 1 room out in their home and had to pay a high tax. Many people quietly rented out two. We also are in mostly home restaurants. There was a heavy tax on signage, so the restaurant operators paid people to get people from the street and sell them and lead them there, on a commission basis. At the time we went the official currency was the us dollar. The worst part of the trip was the Jamaican travel agent gave the card info to someone in the US and there were fraudulent charges. The other thing was we traveled light and were completely searched and our luggage torn apart a bit looking for drugs on the way back in. (We were selected for screening.) Felt ironic. Also the non-state home restaurants werent allowed to sell some items, like shrimp. They werent on the menu but every place had them. The food was great (and it was awful in the state-run restaurants). People there were positive about the liberalization going on at the time. They had Coke etc all imported from Mexico. We saw a number of new cars at the time as well. There is no real property rights in Cuba, the government may give you title to your home or a piece of land but it can take it back on any flimsy excuse plus it puts so many restrictions on selling or disposing on it, including at time the outright prohibition to do it as to render it meaningless and the laws change capriciously also, they could be relaxed at some point, tightened at other depending of the perceived political needs of the government. The same goes for small business including farming, authorized when things are going very bad, crushed when things get better and the owners are becoming well off exciting the envy of others and becoming a target for demagogy. It is very easy to do a crack down as in order to do anything in Cuba you have to violate the laws (like the one Kurt mentioned about the shrimps), buy something in the black market, frequently stuff stolen from the government and cheat on confiscatory taxes and licenses. I have seen those cycles several times so people do not have incentives to make long term investments, if they still try is because they have to survive. In the case of the buildings there is also shortage of materials for up-keeping and repairs along with the issue of who owns the common portion of the structure. Lack of enough new construction is what led to the subdivision of houses into smaller units and additional rooms as families grow and branch in the same house, not because somehow people prefer smaller living spaces. Most of those constructions are illegal and contribute to the collapse of old buildings not designed for such a load. Cows. Thanks to Castros experiments and lack of incentives with state ownership the livestock in Cuba dwindled, it used to have one head of cattle by people when he took power and Cuba was largely self-sufficient. The stories that Russ related are true although they sound incredibly bizarre to an American. The wife of a friend of mine who lived on the countryside told me she was on the lookout for the birds that feed on carcasses because people bold enough to kill a cow often just cut a leg and run leaving the animal bleeding to die, immediately the scavenger birds show off and she run to where they pointed to take some of what was left behind. Grocery stores in Cuba you have to see them to believe it and even the stores that sell in hard currency lack most things you find in a modest American supermarket, not to mention the variety. Most people coming from Cuba are just overwhelmed with the choices, sometimes to the point of breakdown, not just on malls or supermarkets but even in restaurants. As Mulligan said it is not the same to know about it as to have it in your face and have to make a decision about what you want. The special period. I dont even want to think about it. Public transportation almost collapse, you have to move around in a bicycle with too little food to sustain you, whatever food you got which was in many cases truly unfit for human consumption you have to divide it to have at least a little each day. I ate in the evening and went to bed immediately or hunger will keep me awake. One thing was never in short supply, benzodiazepines to keep people sedated and cheap alcohol. We were lucky that one of my brothers was is Brazil and sent us vitamins and some food as well as soap and toothpaste. For years after coming to America I had nightmares about somehow visiting Cuba and not being able to come back, call it PTSD. I was so desperate that I left on a suicide trip on a raft, thankfully I made it here alive, never to come back to Cuba. Finally if you want to see the real Cuba without having to go there open Google Earth, activate the pictures layer and click on the thousands of pictures regular people post there. I found the peoples supportadmiration of the Castros unsurprising. People are weird animals. Obama has made African Americans poorer and worse off by most metrics, but the metric they prize is not material but tribal and so give him support of 90s. I suspect if Obama was declared emperor for life and instituted a socialist European country his popularity would stay high for a long time. The strong man reminds us of primal impulses towards the hunter gatherer leader and no matter how oppressed and poor these leaders make us, they tend to have decent support. The norm of all history is violent control of the masses by the elite. Many are conditioned to be happy about this as long as they see their team as winning or perceive an external threat that is greater. It reminds me of an old anecdote from Econtalk about gouging and young men who drove to a hurricane area with an ice truck to sell ice. People stood in line to get ice, but the prices were too high and the cops were called. The people waiting in line for ice cheered when the cops took them away. People are nuts. People support and love dictators all the time. People support, admire, and even love elected politicians that care nothing for them and only seek to advance their own power, and outside of their TV personalities are nasty human beings. People are wired in weird ways. I looked into the religion-development lit a few years ago. Countries with Protestant missionaries had faster development than those with Catholic missionaries, because the protestants emphasized literacy for their members to read bibles in local languages. I think its easy to romanticize Cuba. An island paradise free from advertising and the stress of capitalism. Quaint shambling old buildings, brightly painted 50s cruisers. So on. I feel like Cuba is as much of an example of Communism as Disneyland is of a fairy kingdom. Its Communism-as-kitsche, a Communist theme park. Thats what makes me the most depressed, really. As Russ pointed out, Cuba prevents its citizens from leaving. Well of course they do I hope that everyone who visits Cuba realizes that they are visiting a zoo. A human zoo.Podcast Episodes Posted by Casey on 3:21 am in Family. Interview Shows. Parenting. Personal Development.

From his island, Thatch Caye, just off the coast of Belize, David discusses his philosophy and pragmatic advice on how to control the time in your life. So often, time seems to slip by, or it is a struggle to keep up with life itself and it is often an excuse that there is not enough money. There are certainly options to get out of the J.O.B. you have, but even in your life right now, you have the opportunity to live life to it8217s fullest Enjoy today8217s show and get your week going. David discusses Amy Cuddy8217s research and TED presentation on body language. Amy Cuddys research on body language reveals that we can change other peoples perceptions and even our own body chemistry simply by changing our body position. Why you should listen Amy Cuddy wasnt supposed to become a successful scientist. In fact, she wasnt even supposed to finish her undergraduate degree. Early in her college career, Cuddy suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, and doctors said she would struggle to fully regain her mental capacity and finish her undergraduate degree. But she proved them wrong.

This is a testament of the joy that can be in your life by following the Four Agreements. Todays Book: The Four Agreements Don Miguel Ruiz Songs: The Doors 8211 Riders of the Storm The Doors 8211 Light My Fire The Four Agreements Summary: 1. Be Impeccable with Your Word Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. Impeccable means without sin and a sin is something you do or believe that goes against yourself. It means not speaking against yourself, to yourself or to others. It means not rejecting yourself. To be impeccable means to take responsibility for yourself, to not participate in the blame game. Regarding the word, the rules of action-reaction apply. What you put out energetically will return to you. Proper use of the word creates proper use of energy, putting out love and gratitude perpetuates the same in the universe. The converse is also true. Impeccability starts at home. Be impeccable with yourself and that will reflect in your life and your relationships with others. This agreement can help change thousands of other agreements, especially ones that create fear instead of love. 2. Don8217t Take Anything Personally Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won8217t be the victim of needless suffering. We take things personally when we agree with what others have said. If we didn8217t agree, the things that others say would not affect us emotionally. If we did not care about what others think about us, their words or behavior could not affect us. Even if someone yells at you, gossips about you, harms you or yours, it still is not about you Their actions and words are based on what they believe in their personal dream. Our personal Book of Law and belief system makes us feel safe. When people have beliefs that are different from our own, we get scared, defend ourselves, and impose our point of view on others. If someone gets angry with us it is because our belief system is challenging their belief system and they get scared. They need to defend their point of view. Why become angry, create conflict, and expend energy arguing when you are aware of this 3. Don8217t Make Assumptions Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. When we make assumptions it is because we believe we know what others are thinking and feeling. We believe we know their point of view, their dream. We forget that our beliefs. Another installment of The Assk Dave and Jen Show that allows you to assk any question that is on your mind, from the boardroom, to the bedroom, from serious to light. There are no question that is out of bounds, so make sure you assk Dave a question and dont forget to request a song and dedicate it to someone you LOVE.

Podcasts Comments Off on 235 8211 Steven Covey, The 13 Habits of HIGH Trust David is inspired after meeting Steven M R Covey and discussing his Bestselling book The Speed of Trust to share the 13 principles. Listen in and enjoy as he add his own Kickass spin to the habits and how they can affect us in our personal and professional life. David also shares a recent TED talk (See Link below) on the subject of being trustworthy. The Band today is COLDPLAY (See Links Below) Quote if the Day: 8220A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.8221 Book: The Speed of Trust by Steven M. R. Covey 1. Talk Straight Say what is on your mind. Dont hide your agenda. When we talk straight we tell the truth and leave the right impression. Most employees don8217t think their bosses communicate honestly. This creates a trust tax. This causes speed to go down and costs to go up. We spend entirely too much time trying to decipher truth from spin. Straight talk needs to be paired with tact. There is no excuse for being so blunt you hurt feelings and destroy relationships. Tact is a skill that can be learned and when coupled with straight talk, will build relationship trust. 2. Demonstrate Respect The principle behind demonstrating respect is the value of the individual. The behavior is acting out the Golden Rule. Almost every culture and religion recognizes the value of the Golden Rule. We should treat people the way we want to be treated. Our actions should show we care. They should be sincere. People will notice if an action is motivated by a lesser reason or an impure value. Respect is demonstrated in the little things we do daily. 3. Create Transparency Tell the truth in a way that can be verified. Transparency is based on principles of honesty, openness, integrity and authenticity. It is based on doing things in the open where all can see. Part of transparency is sharing information. If ever in question, err on the side of disclosure. Rollin King, founder of Southwest Airlines states, We adopted the philosophy that we wouldnt hide anything, not any of our problems, from the employees. Thats transparency. 4. Right Wrongs To right a wrong is much more than apologizing. It involves making restitution. With customers it may include that free gift along with the sincere apology. We have all been to a restaurant where we received an apology along with a free dessert or a coupon for something free the next time we eat there. It is the principle of going the extra mile. Some will justify their wrongful behavior while others will try covering up their misdeeds. Both of these attempts will not only fail to make deposits in trust ac- counts, but are certain to make substantial withdrawals. 5. Show Loyalty There are many ways to show loyalty to your employees. Covey focuses on two. First, give credit to others. As a leader you need to give credit to the individuals responsible for success. A leader should never take credit for the hard work of others. Just as bad is the one who gives credit to someone in their presence, but then down-plays their contribution to others. Giving credit to others is the right thing to do. It will.
