Steven Johnson is at Davos, blogging along intermittently. His post on Angela Merkel's presentation (Merkel At Davos) evinces a number of, well, troubling interactions:
Helpful. Dell gave a fascinating mini-course on economic incentives as well, explaining to the Chancellor that it's difficult to get people to work if they make as much money NOT working. Merkel took it all in with a cheery demeanor -- she told Dell "Good advice" in English -- but I kept waiting for her to strike back...
Yimeny. No wonder we can't get those we try to denote as allies to get along with us.
Cold comfort, but after the coming economic collapse, those who learn to get along will probably be best placed to get along.Posted by esinclai at January 26, 2006 07:54 AM |
