Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

From the department of "what could possibly go wrong?"
Private equity to assist in nuclear shutdown.
Just to make this clear to any passing environmentalists; I don't actually believe that nuclear power stations are particularly dangerous to human health. However, the reason why they're not dangerous to human health is that huge amounts of care and engineering effort are spent on making sure that they won't be (even in Chernobyl, NB, the really nasty stuff didn't get out at all). This makes them very dangerous indeed to the taxpayer's wallet. The record of public-private partnerships in safeguarding the taxpayer's wallet is a) very bad and b) much worse, the longer-dated and more critically important the contract.
