Hah, I was laughing last year because world's top spammer was Poland.

Who calls a book "Poor Economics" when "Pooronomics" would be so much sexier. That's a title you can leverage into a brand!


I just listened to the "lottery loophole" podcast. Prize Linked Savings accounts sound like a great tool to help the economy.

However, I was dispirited by the interview with the "treasury guy". I could go negative on him, since it's his responsibility to fight for economic health, but I would rather just crush his point of view with 500,000 signatures on a petition.

It would be great if Freakonomics staff would craft a petition on Change.org around this topic. I would definitely like the option to choose a PLS account at my local bank.
