Non-places: airports, hotels, fast food restaurants, malls. We pay little attention to these places because they are not destinations; our time there is temporary.  Smartphones are creating a world of non-places.  We are so wrapped up in the phones that we are only searching for what else is out there and pay no attention to where we are.  Soon we will all become non-humans!

The GDP is often used to measure the well-being of a nation. However, it only measures the "gross", not the "net".

According to Bloomberg, everyone has a "Wealth Number". Unsurprisingly, there are a lot more people with a low wealth number (-2 to 2: subsistence farmer) than a high wealth number (11: Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates).
