What is the key to smarter decisions?
In my opinion to make smarter decision is fairly simple. First you must have an open mind. Second you must have the ability to retain the information given. Third, you must look at the information critically. Fourth, follow through with your decision. I find making decisions easy but having the discipline to follow through is the hardest. Its not really the "make" the decision that gets me. Its in fact do have the discipline to maintain and stick to my decision.

Do you think this is the greatest FAIL of OccupyWallStreet?
Buzz phrase or not doesn't the symbol unfairly represents the other Americans, who aren't speaking out. For example there is a counter movement which "we are the 53%" against the " we are the 99%". What do you say to the other Americans who disagree with the OccupyWallStreet people?

As a spectator, and investor of the American/Canadian economy I am highly interested in this movement and its slogan. First off the slogan "we are the 99%" slogan accuracy is questionable. What makes you the 99% and what makes you the 1% can any one define it? Or is everyone just blindly following inaccurate and exaggerated statements?

Do our society encourage too much editing of photos?
When I was young probably around 12 we headed to the YVR international airport field and took many photos with film. We didn't edit a single photo. The photo was meaningful nothing was changed. It was reality and it was beautiful. It was the moment forever unchanged but as of today many people use editing to remove the flaws and the natural beauty of pictures. A meaningful picture is a picture of the moment not changed by programs and software.

Isn't it time to eliminate grades in education?
I would say yes to this idea as detailing the grade and the reason why they grade it would provide a much better idea to the parent rather than just grading. This idea was inspired by the S/P rating style. They would rate a company then provide a detail reason on why the rated it and the concerns and highlights of the company. I think it would be a better way to explain the reasoning of the grade to the parent and to the student then just giving them a grade and a small "Great job" note.

Maybe schools or the education system should put in small fine letters. "The grade presented in this report card does not represent your child true learning standing and if you disagree with the grade given please contact your child's teacher. As the teacher will discuss the reasons why your child was rated this grade in terms of learning standing."

Fiat Currency Vs Gold Standard which is better?
Jame's point on how "[money] supply in Developed economies could never be backed by Gold in such a spurious way, when the overall wealth of nations (houses, railways, internet companies etc) is massively massively more than currency reserves or indeed the amount of Gold" really gave me something to think about. That we might really not have enough gold to go around if we actually went gold standard, but on the other hand I feel that Fiat currency is the wrong way to go. Fiat currency seems to be baseless and has not merits when we keep printing money. I just fear one day we might have too much of the fiat currency with no backing (just government saying it has value) in circulation might just collapse due to the inability to control the inflation. On a very wild note maybe we could back currency based on carbon emission ( Lesser emission = higher value) but that would be crazy.

should we allow the nuclear power,,???
Nuclear energy is not a permanent energy fix but it sure is better than using Coal which is the leading energy producer and also produce the most carbon emissions of the two. As of 2009 Nuclear powers almost 20% of the worlds electricity because of its reliability and affordability. If you want a good example of how nuclear is being used take a look at France. Nuclear powers almost 60% of their electricity.
