Fashion often tries to reclaim ideas that history has declared impractical, outdated or just plain “ugh.” Sometimes it works. Ideas like the maxi skirt and grunge have been reborn and celebrated. It took our eyes a little time to adjust to bubble skirts, but they finally did.
While Rodrik no doubt set out to offer an evenhanded view of modern economics, in the end he winds up delivering a fairly devastating critique. “The discipline hobbles from one set of preferred models to another, driven less by evidence than by fads and ideology,” he writes. He despairs that his profession has become one that values “smarts over judgment,” has disdain for other disciplines and is content to produce mathematically elegant research papers that few outside the guild will ever use or understand.

For years, scientists have envisioned the manufacturing of synthetic meat, which would involve taking a small amount of muscle cells from a living animal and using it to culture lumps of tissue that then could be cooked and eaten, just like real beef or chicken. But recently, they’ve moved closer to making mass produced test tube burgers a reality. In 2011, University of Missouri tissue engineering specialist Gabor Forgacs not only produced a sample of synthetic muscle, but publicly ate some of it at a scientific conference.
Based on our initial impressions, Dollhouse seems like a creepily cautionary tale the show’s tagline is “”They can be anyone you want” set in an vaguely cyberpunkish universe:”The Dollhouse is a very secret, and very illegal, place where wishes come true. Clients with the right connections and enough money can hire ‘Actives’, people who have been programmed to perfectly fulfill the needs, and desires of their clients. The Actives are people who have chosen, for their own reasons, to surrender their bodies and minds for a five year stay in the Dollhouse.
