The dogma is this: If we are interested in maximising the welfare of our citizens, we have to maximise individual freedom. The reason is that freedom is good, valuable, worthwhile, and essential to being human.

Too many options lead us to expect perfection - you may never be pleasantly surprised by quality because your expectations have gone through the roof.
When you choose from thousands of options, you may always feel disappointed. You may think you're at fault because you could've chosen some...
The problem that lies in the modern, affluent, Western societies is that expensive, complicated choices don't help. They make us worse off.
Therefore, income redistribution can make everyone better off, because of how excess choice plagues us. Too many choices don't give freedom. It paraly...
We have an almost unlimited variety of choices, for example, hundreds of salad dressings, an unlimited variety of phones, choices in health care, prescription drugs and more.

Very few of us feel competent enough to choose between an overwhelming amount of options. When you are offered 156 different kinds of retirement plans, for instance, it can make you miserable to make a competent choice. For that reason, it might be easier not to make a choice.
Having more options doesn’t mean that we will be happier, although, we often think that it will.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
