The Mises Week in Review: October 10, 2015

International trade grabbed headlines this week with Monday’s announcement that twelve governments have reached agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. While it should be of no surprise to see the news celebrated in the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal or the Council of Foreign Relations blog, it is unfortunate even libertarian organizations are praising the agreement.

Plato - The Cave
The Allegory of the Cave is an allegory used by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work The Republic. The allegory of the cave is told as a fictional dialog between Plato's teacher Socrates, and his own brother, Glaucon, at the beginning of Book 7 (514a520a). It is related to Plato's metaphor of the sun (507b509c) and the analogy of the divided line (509d513e) which immediately precede it at the end of Book 6. Allegories are summarized in the viewpoint of dialectic at the end of book VII and VII

What’s Behind Microsoft’s $8.5 Billion Takeover of Skype?
Rumors that Facebook or Cisco would buy Skype were proven wrong on Tuesday when Microsoft struck an $8.5 billion deal to acquire the online voice and video chat service. Most analysts welcomed the takeover as a shrewd move on the grounds that it positions Microsoft in a commanding position in the emerging markets of video content and online telephony. Still, considering that Skype's previous acquisition by eBay ended in a $1.4 billion write-down, questions remain. Will there be a good cultural f

Introduction

In this course I look at a number of different programming and design styles associated with distributed system development. The course first examines message passing and the role of protocols – both fixed and adaptive protocols. Two styles of message passing are also examined: synchronous and asynchronous message passing. The next part of the course introduces distributed object technology. Event-based development relies on listener objects listening to events which are propagated along a

6.3 Where is the complexity and what is it?

When I reflect on my experiences of child-support, I attribute the properties of mess, complex, or hard-to-understand to the situation. So, are mess, complex, and hard-to-understand the same thing? If they are, why is the course called Managing Complexity, rather than, say, Managing Messes? A glib answer is you might not have been attracted to it because of the everyday meaning of mess. Yet another answer is that complexity is a rich term whose everyday meanings have been further enriched by

2.9 Painterly techniques

A sensuous use of colour subverted the neoclassical aesthetic, in which moral and intellectual messages – or, at the very least, a concept of ‘noble form’ – were intended to dominate. In the case of Delacroix, this attention to the effects of colour is heightened by a concern with the textural qualities of paint. In order to produce a matt but bright surface, he applied thin layers of oil glaze to an initial lay-in of distemper (see ten-Doesschate Chu, 2001, p.102). It is thoug
