Robert J. Shiller

Rebecca MacKinnon

N. Chandrababu Naidu

Jeff Sessions
The ‘Doom’ thing is to be able to come at things with a different point of view. I decided the mask would just add to the mystique of the character as well as make Doom stand out.

MF Doom
We needed overtime laws, we needed unionization, we needed to figure out how to distribute the Industrial Revolution’s gains with equity, and we’re going through something similar with the technology revolution.

Trump sees the world in terms of a zero-sum game. In reality, globalisation, if well managed, is a positive-sum force: America gains if its friends and allies – whether Australia, the E.U., or Mexico – are stronger. But Trump’s approach threatens to turn it into a negative-sum game: America will lose, too.
Joseph Stiglitz
When you ask people, ‘What’s the opposite of fragile?,’ they tend to say robust, resilient, adaptable, solid, strong. That’s not it. The opposite of fragile is something that gains from disorder.
