My fourth day of daily blogging.
Finland won Czech Republik in Ice Hockey olympics and made it's way to semifinals. The rest of the games are important, because already Finland has beaten our hated neighbors Russia and Sweden, because they didn't make it to the semifinals.
One of the explanations of finnish Ice-Hockey success is that we have bigger balls than our baltic neighbors: Why do Danes have smaller nuts than Finns—are toxins to blame?
I've been listening to a lot of econtalk podcasts. Often they talk about growth and development, and why some countries do better than others. It's depressing that they don't even bring up the hypothesis of Lynn and Vanhanen, that average IQ's might explain a lot of differences in wealth. There is of course many factors and many possible explanations, but shying away from this quite important one, when considering all kinds of other things is just not good.
I'm considering to start some kind of small business as a hobby. I'm open to any ideas as to what value to produce and sell easily with small capital investment. I think it could be great fun and educational. Barriers are low if I keep my business small and revenue under 10 000 €
