Interesting #EU economy comparison against USA from Polish Puls Biznesu: “Europejski model kapitalizmu triumfuje”. Paywalled, so a brief summary here:

EU caught up with USA in terms of job activity in 2020, and overcame US in 2021; the indicator saw a steady decline in the US since 2000, while EU saw a steady increase
Authors conclude that “Europe offers citizens plenty of job opportunities and at the same time social safety network and healthcare”
Market freedom and competition on the EU market is kept at a stable level, while in the US it’s in decline due to well dug-in monopolies that control whole sectors of monopoly
The authors quote a book by Thomas Philippon “The Great Reversal. How America Gave Up on Free Markets” that goes into detail on the latter
European society perceives itself as having less social mobility, while in reality it has much more social mobility than the US (Alberto Alesina i Stefanie Stancheva, “Intergenerational Mobility and Preferences for Redistribution”). The data shows you are actually more likely to move into a higher income group in EU is higher than in the US, regardless of the “American dream” stereotype.

the existence of a hylomorphism implies the existence of a psychomorphism

"We like to torment object-oriented programmers by making all the fields final; when we’ve knocked them off balance, we complete the job by putting all the code in the constructor. When they’ve recovered somewhat, we use a static method instead of a class. Because that’s how we roll. (As a last resort, we put a crocodile in their swimming pool.)"

funnily enough, adding keyword arguments to an ML-like language will just recreate Smalltalk calling notation with added currying
