Ten Laws of the Modern World
Jeremy Faludi, 26 Apr 05

Forbes has a nice little piece on what they call "ten laws for the modern world": vectors of change consistent enough to bet on for the last twenty years or more, and that you'd be a fool to bet against in the coming twenty. Some of them you've already known forever, like Moore's Law and Metcalfe's Law, but a couple give new insight: for instance, Gilder's Law: "The best business models...waste the era's cheapest resources in order to conserve the era's most expensive resources." That's good news for the environment, because information is becoming cheaper than matter every day, and it's the thing we need most to conserve resources.

Ok, I have a stupid question.

Do you know why I can't see this post on the main page? I only discovered it when I clicked on Mainstreaming Env Econ and used the Older-Main-Newer navigation tool at the top of the permalink. Am I missing out on 2 out of 3 Worldchanging posts?

It's at the bottom of the blog page, under Quick Changes. I guess they are different than the other posts because there's less detai..
