"System change is now inevitable. Either because we do something about it, or because we will be hit by climate change. '...

"We need to develop economic models that are fit for purpose. The current economic frameworks, the ones that dominate our governments, these frameworks... the current economic frameworks, the neoclassical, the market frameworks, can deal with small changes. It can tell you the difference, if a sock company puts up the price of socks, what the demand for socks will be. It cannot tell you about the sorts of system level changes we are talking about here. We would not use an understanding of laminar flow in fluid dynamics to understand turbulent flow. So why is it we are using marginal economics, small incremental change economics, to understand system level changes?"

Some strange camera settings?

Just iPhoto abuse. Rather than cleaning up my pictures in postprocessing I like to mess them up a bit.

My first reaction was "huh, old neg film and a scan from an old print...", due to the color rendition ...

The "Main Street, Richland Springs TX" is highly reminiscent of a fairly famous painting by an American in the 1930s. I don't remember his name nor the name of the private museum in (next to) the City of London in which the painting hangs.

Aha! Goggle found the museum with no difficulty whatsoever.
The Courtauld Institute of Art
has one of the most tasteful collections anywhere. You to be congradulated in your excellent taste in iPhotoing.
