Tesla Opens Up Patents to Promote Electric Vehicles | Re/code
Elon Musk's legacy will not just be Tesla Motors and SpaceX. It will also be this, being concerned about the future, that the velocity of which the electric car spreads to the consumer around the world isn't steep enough in order to make a dent in the world ... in the world's carbon emission reduction / global warming. He puts the common and public good before profits and WallStreet. Knowing and banking on the Tesla Brand and still having the first mover advantage in 5 years. Elon Musk picks his fights really well. Marrying a capitalistic profit motive of a company that was on the brink of failure and the public good/common good of reducing carbon footprint of the world. Establishing, enabling industry standards. Preventing technological incompatibilities and silos. Trying to prevent consumer frustration and friction. This is Win-Win. If Wall Street tanks the Stock this Friday, we should all give up ... on Wall Street already. // http://onforb.es/1mNg7Jw

Monetary policy: Was the Fed timid, or bold? | The Economist
The Committee currently anticipates that economic conditions--including low rates of resource utilization and a subdued outlook for inflation over the medium run--are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate at least through mid-2013.Now you tell me: what inflation rate does the Fed want? What rate is it prepared to tolerate? Maybe—hopefully—the Fed's action was actually an aggressive move to counter economic weakness. The fact that we're all still able to debate the matter leaves me sceptical that it was.
