#ProtectingSight #433: What causes an economic recession? Posterior capsular rent and thalamic esotropia. Thinking fast and slow.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Richard Coffin: What causes an economic recession?. “For millennia, the people of Britain had been using bronze to make tools and jewelry, and as a currency for trade. But around 800 BCE, that began to change: the value of bronze declined, causing social upheaval and an economic crisis— what we would call a recession today. So what causes recessions? Richard Coffin digs into the economic fluctuations that affect our modern markets. [Directed by Augenblick Studios, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by GDM Production Music].” (ted.com description)
