"When I taught maths and physics at MIT, I forbade my students the use of a calculator. Why? Because a numerical answer is beside the point. One must learn the concepts of how to model and approach a problem to understand these fields.Once this knowledge is solid, then comes a consideration of how and when to apply it."
By Susan Brown on Stop teaching kids to add up — maths is more important

"What does the new package of financial goodies amount to? The printing of trillions more in paper liabilities to purchase existing paper liabilities - debt that will never be honoured; 'money' that has never been within a mile of real productivity. Having started a fire, policymakers now want us to believe they know how to put it out, by adding more paraffin to the blaze."
