Today I went to type £ (British pound) and a € (euro) symbols on my Mac (with British keyboard settings) and found I got a @ and # instead. Whaaaa? The key mappings had got messed up, something I’d never noticed happening before. It turns out I wasn’t alone .

Since the US financial crisis, the United States has been printing a lot of dollars (via the Fed’s Quantitative Easing — or QE — programme that you’ve probably heard mentioned on the news). The Fed has also kept interest rates at 0% to encourage people to spend, rather than save, their money. These policies, designed to lift the faltering US economy, mean lots of dollars to go round and a consequently weaker dollar (one of the causes for the peso being stronger than ever until 2013). When the Fed started talking about gradually ending QE in May 2013, the dollar began to strengthen. The US economy is now recovering and QE is over, taking us to the next stage: the Fed will soon raise interest rates — possibly as early as September. Higher interest rates will make the US a more attractive place for investment and could lift the dollar, thus weakening the Colombian peso.

During an earlier proceeding, Barbier heard from six experts who presented varying estimates of the size of the spill, ranging from as little as 2.4 million barrels to as many as 6 million barrels (see table below). “BP and the United States also presented competing theories of how the rate of discharge changed over the course of the spill,” Barbier wrote. “The evidence … was voluminous, dense, highly technical, and conflicting. … Both sides … mounted effective attacks on the other’s calculations.” They disputed, for instance, just how big the underground reservoir of oil was at the start of the spill, how much pressure it was under, and the permeability and “compressiblity” the surrounding rock layers.
“Currencies today operate with two decimal spaces to the right ($1.00). In bitcoin, there are currently eight so one could theoretically pay you 0.00000001 or one hundred-millionth of a bitcoin. Not only is this confusing for consumers, it does not fit in existing systems and software for accounting practices.”
