    Oxycontin/Oxycodone made from poppies? I don't think so. Morphine and Heroin are the only opiates made from the poppy that I know of. Maybe codeine, too. Someone who knows more than me will nicely correct me if I am wrong.

    • Jeff Walker

      Pretty sure synthetic opioids are made from poppies just as morphine and heroin are. Purdue pharma, maker of Oxycontin, sourced their ingredients from poppies grown in Tasmania. It wasn't until very recently that they began synthesizing the chemical extracts to take poppy cultivation out of the equation.

He shared a concept that might give business leverage to a penniless inventor looking for start up money from a go guns corporate clone with deep pockets. One has brains. The other brawn ($). So how can Joe Schmoe avoid having his talent, patent and money snatched by dickheads??? KEEP AN OPEN TERMS 50/50 Constant balance of reciprocity agreement.

    Dominant strategy. Yeah, that's it in a nutshell. Some people have to be in control, on top, in front. Some people are cool with giving and taking criticism and the back burner to make sure everyone in radius of your pie gets a slice. THE LATTER OF THE TWO ARE THE LEADERS OF TOMORROW. John Nash urged competition and growth sharing because not only does the economy rise you will always be better received by your competitors during "an unexpected company slump or travesty requiring support" Be nice to the people you deal with on your way up because they are the same ones you'll see on the way down.

  • Max Duvall
    Max Duvall 3 months ago

    I love economics and I always thought of it as a hobby but recently I've been thinking why not major in it. I was going to Double Bio and Psych but that would take me 4 years in a very expensive college that I'm in while if I did Econ and Psych I would instead be out in three years. My main issue is with the former I could make good money as a biologist in Stem fields and the Psych degree would help if I ever decide to either go further in a doctorate, if I decide to be a counselor, or if I decide to go to med school. However, I always planned on going back and getting an Econ degree regardless at some point in my life so I figured why not now? my main concern is not making enough money with those 2 degrees, as psych doesn't make you much at all and I don't know much about Econ jobs. Would you mind filling me in on what some popular jobs are that Econ majors get out of their undergrad? and how much they typically make? all ive seen is stuff like Analysts and government workers which im not against but many people say Econ degrees are really good I just haven't seen that in my research, it feels like a really confined and worthless degree by itself.

    This was a good podcast until towards end when you started putting forward an argument insisting that inequality did not matter - and that Stiglitz was supposedly over-reaching by pointing out the dangers in the political economy of inequality. Power imbalance ensuing from income [and wealth] inequality is not a trivial matter. Nor is it the only cost of inequality. Perhaps the most consequential cost of inequality is the weakening [and disappearance] of the equality of opportunity for the masses of people - be it educational or occupational opportunities. Moreover, by taking Venezuela as an example of a state that strived for economic equality while upholding political inequality, you attempted to dismiss the whole ideal of striving to reduce inequality. This was another dishonest and politically motivated attempt on your part. Why not look at the Nordic region as an example of the success of economic AND political egalitarianism? In any case - you would do better by keeping your Right wing horse shit away from your economic analysis.

    Urban density is one of the worse things about society. It doesn’t allow us to live the Dream. Everyone should live in a house with a backyard and a car. It should be a human right to be honest. Density causes many problems like polluted air, traffic and a lack of parking spaces. The society is getting poorer with density.

      This idea of the American dream is the reason why Suburbs are now getting poorer You talk about a dream that is more damaging than dense cities, people on cities are richer than people on suburbs Why is it that Europe and Asia places that have high density tend to have a better lifestyle than American suburbians, is because everything is there for them They have transportation, health-care safety, and commune Something lacking in suburbs If you want to know more why suburbs was a bad idea go watch "EcoGecko"

    Thanks for the insightful video. I'm currently doing an undergraduate course in PPE (mixed program with Philo, Pol, Econ) and I'm not sure if I should go for my masters in Economics or in Politcal Policy / Public Policy. From what I understand, economics has a higher success rate with jobs related to finance and economic policy jobs in the private and government sector, whereas PP has roots in both but is more suited for the government sector. Are you able to give me any advice on this? Also possibly anyone in the comment section too, who perhaps went down a similar path, and might be able to help me out and give me some clarity?

      @ ludus , I read you comments and first of all I was registered to PPE with university in England and found that this type of degree has 60% of graduate dont make it to through interview stage one and only 14% make it through interview which not significant results so based on that statistics numbers. Changed my degree to Economics as it has a lot of potential..PPE only has valuable if you study with oxford university,Cambridge university and Harvard university and maschuette university other than is considered as waste of time and plus a lot of people consider this degree as the passport to power in any governments however it’s full of jargon due to 3 interdisciplinary topic which ended up not no specialised in space fix area ..this is my option

    The effects of the minimum wage are likely to vary depending on a number of factors, and channels of adjustment besides employment exist - firms can raise prices, cut back on non-wage costs (healthcare, training), increase worker expectations, replace labor with capital, etc. Even if a study finds no negative short-term employment effect, after addressing all of the problems with the research done in the vein of Card and Krueger, that's not a green light to go ahead and start raising it.
