LW must really need the money, having decided to destroy a non-trivial communal resource
The thought saver at the end of the heritability section asks you to remember some strategies for self control, but they’ve not been introduced yet
Presumably the welfare premium is reduced if the ethical egg providers can recoup some costs from a quality premium
Not sure at all! It still seems like the ordering is tricky. They don’t know how many ethical eggs they’ve sold when selling towards the consumer. There’s not a guarantee of future ethical eggs when buying the certificate.
Maybe it works out OK, and they can sell 873,551 eggs at a regular price after that many certificates were bought, and the rest at the higher price. I know very little about how the food supply chain works
IIUC, this exposes the high-welfare egg co to more risk. It’s hard to sell 1 million eggs for one price, and 1 million for another price. So they probably have to choose to sell at the low welfare price constantly. But this means they build up a negative balance that they’re hoping ethical consumers will buy them out of.
Was this actually cross posted by EY, or by Rob or Ben? I prefer it being mentioned in the latter case
To add more color to the inadequate equilibrium: I didn’t want to hang out with people with a lot of risk, not because of how bad COVID would be for me, but because of how it would limit which community members would interact with me. But this also meant I was a community member who was causing other people to take less risk.
I didn’t mean to predict on this; I was just trying to see number of predictions on first one. Turns out that causes prediction on mobile
Hoping, I guess, that the name was bad enough that others would call it an Uhlmann Filter
Oh, and I also notice that a social manoeuvring game (the game that governs who is admitted) is a task where performance is correlated with performance on (1) and (2)
First time I’ve seen a highlighted mod comment. I like it!
Most of the Inner Rings I’ve observed are primarily selected on (1) being able to skilfully violate the explicit local rules to get things done without degrading the structure the rules hold up and (2) being fun to be around, even for long periods and hard work.
Lewis acknowledges that Inner Rings aren’t necessarily bad, and I think the above is a reason why.
Making correct decisions is hard. Sharing more data tends to make them easier. Whether you’ll thrive or fail in a job may well depend on parts you are inclined to hide. Also, though we may be unwilling to change many parts of ourselves, other times we are getting in our own way, and it can help to have more eyes on the part of the territory that’s you
All uses of the second person “you” and “your” in this post are in fact me talking to myself
I wanted to upvote just for this note, but I decided it’s not good to upvote things based on the first sentence or so. So I read the post, and it’s good, so now I can upvote guilt-free!
Reminds me of The Costs of Reliability
I would also be salty
I think this tag should cover, for example, auction mechanics. Auctions don’t seem much like institutions to me
Note also Odin was “Woden” in Old English
