Also, it is assumed that interest rates remain log-additive, which is true in the classical world. But in the classical world, relative speeds are also additive, which is shown to be incorrect by Einstein. So if the interest rates also do not satisfy the log-additive then the formulae would be even more interesting.

]]>This year we had a researcher traversing the route

IG Noble–>Noble. We need now an Noble–>IGNoble and Krugman would have been a good candidate had he published this paper after his Noble.

Hmmm…why not generalize this paper to interuniverse trade using M-theory ? I remaind have heard of one researcher named Garkmun which traversed this path precisely this way in the 10^500 nth universe…

]]>Part of the sting that I feel comes from my realization that I would happily accept such a paper to an AGT conference — even if it was not also funny — despite its absurdity since it is so elegant….

]]>Slightly more seriously, it seems inevitable to me that with so many academics around the world being asked to publish to have their choice of job, people do more problem-inventing than problem-solving on average. One could be pretentious about it or honest. If one is honest and makes some effort that the problem-inventing is creative, intellectually stimulating, and within a few steps of applicability, is that reasonable?
