This final note, spotted on the pages of the Drudge Report today.

Amazon has a special page that lists what it calls "Movers and Shakers:" books that had the biggest gains in sales over the past 24 hours.

Currently coming in at number 17, out of the zillions of books Amazon sells: 1984, by George Orwell, whence we get Orwellian and Big Brother.

Just to get it back to the news of the day, sales have doubled in the past day.

See, you can find business and economics in anything.


“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
