"It's awesome that you've got the 1:3 ratio. Most people end up in a 5:1 ratio - you need five good things to fix one bad thing. I find this is very true in my relationships, especially with Amy. If I do one negative thing, it takes at least five positive things to get back to even. We are very honest with each other, so it's less about what we "say" vs. what we "do" - but it plays across a lot of relationships. I love the "I won't let it deal with me" - I will use that in the future." - Brad Feld

"I'm not sure we are disagreeing. I think the hypothetical understanding and / or the Gedankenexperiment is healthy. That sounds like what you are doing. It also sounds like what Tom was doing - I was disagreeing with his statement "energy prices are going relentlessly down." I think the moment you build an argument on the inevitability of something like that, you are in trouble. If this was hypothetical in Tom's case, then I missed that (I thought it was an assertion.) My punch line, "I'd be very cautious about using it as a real input." Which it sounds like you are doing based on your statement, "I don't want to go out and make bets based on this thesis" I suppose my use of the word "input" is sloppy here. I was meaning "input" in the context of economic theory, rather than through process to understand context in a scenario. Just trying to clarify and see if we are actually disagreeing. I don't think you believe that "things will always go up", or "things will always go down", or..." - Brad Feld

""Worth considering" - definitely, but your more important point is "economists don't fully understand the deflationary effects of technology." I strongly agree with that and it's one of the things that is going to be confusing to folks on a macro level over the next few years. One of the very few people who has a clue is Erik Brynjolfsson at MIT Sloan. http://ebusiness.mit.edu/erik/" - Brad Feld

"Human beings are extremely bad at dealing with geometric curves. We extrapolate everything to a straight line. And then we believe the straight line is going to continue for the foreseeable future. Tom's comment feels like he's struggling with that. I have huge respect for Tom and his brain, but how do we really know that energy prices are going relentlessly down? What happens when Russia, Iran, and Argentina's economies collapse enough so that Saudi Arabia and the US collude on an Saudi cutback on oil production, which results in increasing energy prices, at least for petroleum based energy. That has nothing to do with a trend-line and is an exogenous factor that has nothing to do with fundamental structural factors (well - ones that are not manipulative.) I remember in mid-2008 when working on a massive new house project hearing from my architect that I should "lock in the price of construction with a fixed priced bid immediately since commodity prices were going to go up forever."..." - Brad Feld
