Uncontrolled is the result of our unsecure society. The experiment in theory and economics are discussed in this book. It begins with the theoretical part which is a little bit boring. The application of the theory of economics is the best part in the book. He talks about his work experience and the theory. A combination which makes it more readable. The final note is how we can learn from trial and error, build human capital and makes the state a better place to live.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good concert, 11 Dec 2013
It is not easy to perform under the open sky. The atmosphere of a concert hall is better. But you have a sunny day for the audience. The concert is a collection of Verdi and Tchaikovsky. I like the voice, which is developed in a darker soprano. It is good for the lyrical drama. The other part is played by the Russian tenor. Both sing very well together.
