This thing is insane: “According to BMW, it’s a bike that has self-balancing systems to keep it upright both when standing (a boon for novice riders, on par with training wheels for bicycles) and in motion (beneficial for experienced riders who want erudite handling at high speed). They are full of pitfalls for both union and management. During one hour, the industrial psychologist may be discussing learning theory with the training director who has become interested in teaching machines; during the next hour, he may be participating in a conference on a morale survey to be conducted in an out-of-town plant.

In 1837, two Brits, William Cooke (1806-1879) and Charles Wheatstone (1802-1875), patented the first commercial electrical telegraph. In the process, aggregate output may increase as a by-product or by design. Household-based surveys are more costly than the current approach of employer-basedsurveys but may be much more reliable because employers face payroll-tax related incentives tounder-report wages, benefits and employment.
