How Would YOU Explain It?

Paul Krugman (quoting someone, I forget who... whom... yes, whom... anyway) said that economic bubbles are naturally occurring Ponzi schemes, which I'd say is a pretty fair assessment.

Anyway, between my new niece on Abby's side, the new niece coming on my side, et al, we've been up to our ears in parenting news and magazines and baby toys and baby gates, etc, etc, etc. So I've been thinking a lot about child-rearing and the nature of the relationship between parents and children and I came to a startling conclusion. I realized that childhood is a naturally occurring case of Stockholm Syndrome.

I think there might be a white paper in this.
