Here is the fascinating book that I mentioned earlier that discusses the business of movies. Mr. Epstein’s equally fascinating weekly column can be found here. This week, he discusses why Blockbuster is going down the toilet (answer: it made some astoundingly stupid decisions).

Speaking of economics, here‘s another story ostensibly about Starbucks, but really about the way that companies market name-brand products. Fascinating stuff.

And, for good measure, here‘s why you ought to tidy up more often.

Update: All right, I promise to not use the word fascinating again for at least three posts.
