"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
KINDNESS in another's trouble,
COURAGE in your own."

Glad you found the Styen link usefull. Thanks for the link to EconTalk. I am very ignorant about Economics and some authoritive "reading" would be most welcome. Since a Geotech spends many long hours running instruments there is huge scope for spoken books and lectures. The Teaching Company provides excellent material which I guiltily download from Pirate Bay. Audible.com "The REALLY Inconveniant Truth" and "Stupid Black Men" are two titles I particularly enjoyed last swing.
Regards WW1 I never tire of hearing the story about what started it off. There was a docco on the History Channel, Brian Blessed did the narration, where Churchill was quoted essentially saying war was a rather jolly affair up untill WW1 when the near certainty of getting killed took the gloss off it a bit. I must track the piece down because it is pure genius.
