    Why does the IVV differ from the SPX? For example as I write this, the real-time feed shows the SPX at +0.74% for the day, while the IVV indicates +0.65% for the day. What gives?

    ‘There have been a lot of convincing studies recently about the loss of productivity in the Western male. It may be that entertainment culture now is so engaging that it keeps people satisfied. We didn’t have that. Science was much more fun than listening to the radio. When you are 16 or 17 and in that inherently semi-lonely period when you are deciding whether to be an intellectual, many now don’t bother.’
    – James Watson on declining interest in science, in Barry’s Guardian link

    Doesn’t this probably also explain the ignorance in civics, history, and world affairs? Maybe we should just embrace the trend. Maybe our future is less “Star Trek” and more “Brazil”.
