  1. Anybody know anybody in Bihar?

    I couldn’t help but wonder about the price elasticity of cow-dung cakes…

    ECON 101 told me that when the demand for a commodity increases the price increases commensurately.

    Are the poor freezing because the rich factory owners are burning all the cow-dung cakes? 😉

    But wait, they have a lot of wind turbines over there, right? I’m looking at an ad for a 3kW roof-mounted unit for $1700.

    Hmmm… ‘Looks like we’re gonna need a bunch of heat pumps… 😉
