Plastic is pound for pound more valuable than steel. Yet we see steel as a resource and plastic as waste. The world has already produced over 4 trillion pounds of plastic. Almost all of that plastic still exists today. All plastic can be recycled. There is no need to create new plastic. We must simply recycle the plastic that litters our planet.

Professor Heppell said the model for Lindfield would not be experimental, but would build on “the most successful and appropriate” directions transforming education, “making it better for learners, for teachers, for wellbeing and for results, too”.
"All schools are unique, and so we will be assembling a unique Lindfield recipe from many of these tested and effective ingredients," he said. "That recipe will continue to evolve as we see and learn from others’ proven ideas around the world."
the recipe could include developing the school as a village for all learners of all ages, creating small schools within the school, a focus on studying “by stage not age” and ensuring it was technology rich with a global focus.

For his part, Piketty welcomes debate but insists he collected and used the (vast, vast amount of) data accurately. He tells Giles:
As I make clear in the book, in the online appendix, and in the many technical papers I have written on this topic, one needs to make a number of adjustments to the raw data sources so as to make them more homogeneous over time and across countries. I have tried in the context of this book to make the most justified choices and arbitrages about data sources and adjustments. I have no doubt that my historical data series can be improved and will be improved in the future (this is why I put everything online).
He added in a “jovial” email to Irwin:
Every wealth ranking in the world shows that the top is rising faster than average wealth. If the FT comes with a wealth ranking showing a different conclusion, they should publish it!

The Whitehouse Institute’s website says the school: “does not currently offer scholarships to gain a place into the Bachelor of Design.”
This was a one off $60,000 gift to the daughter of the PM while everyone else will have to pay back $100,000+ sooner at a higher interest rate if they go to uni.
Pay through the nose for the privilege to graduate as an economic unit of labour.
