Sorry bb, this is all I could find, the paper is not yet on the web as a pdf like his previous work.

Oh damn. I was thinking you'd read the work and had just linked to a pertinent excerpt.

I'd really like to know the answer to my question, although I don't expect it to be in his work. To clarify, from an economics perspective, there's likely a reference to when financial innovations occurred and who invented them but I'm more interested in the why.

That sort of unanswered question is, in my opinion, a huge disservice to knowledge. We do a lot with science now but the disciplines are still too segregated.

Regarding historical events, there should be an interdisciplinary examination including archaeology, anthropology, sociology, psychology and probably a few other ologies I'm not thinking of right now.

Cause like, if you hire a carpenter to fix your toilet... he's gonna use a hammer. Not all jobs can be done with a hammer.

For those.... we need duct tape. Tongue

Having read a few of Hooper's papers he is usually detailed, lets see when it finally comes out. I'll keep an eye out.
