Time, space and money. I was going to follow up my discussion of time with a discussion of space, and I still may write urlabout space in a future blog.  But I thought money, especially at this time of year, was a better topic.

Such encounters are today increasingly rare and I would imagine that there are fewer than ten thousand people presently on planet earth for whom the concept of money is unknown. (more…)
