I only could afford a three-minute browse just now, but the material appears to be relevant to what we are doing
and interesting. Have to come back to this. QWhat I read immediately called up two thoughts:
A colleague at Dawson who taughts economics was wont to say that many people know the price of everything and

Re complexity theory:
The introductory line of a physics professor lecturing about the cow: "Imagine a spherical cow."
