comment Two Successive Coups?
These are some good ancient references. I only looked at 20th/21st century events.

comment Gold Confiscation Act of 1933
@T.E.D. I'm probably more of a mix of Friedman's Chicago School and Nassim Nicholas Taleb's "Black Swan" thoughts. While I can find points of agreement with the Austrians, I usually find myself arguing with them more than I do Keynesians when it comes to politics and the economy.

BTW, my browser (Firefox 12.0) crashed when I visited the home page of that gold eagle site. Do you think they could pack in any more ads there? The linked page seems safe though.

comment What was the world population around 970 BC? Does it fit the biblical narrative?
The world population estimates of the time period would suggest that an adult male population of 800K in Palestine is a plausible number. That said, numbers in the Bible have been mistranslated at times so that's why I'd suggest the hermeneutics site to probe that aspect.

If you're looking for a Biblical interpretation you might want to try this StackExchange site instead: hermeneutics.stackexchange.com

comment When Did Commerical Studio Photography Become Common?
@MichaelF - That's an interesting thought, did limners move from sketching to photography, adapting to technological change? I'll have to look at that angle too.

@T.E.D. - I'm also looking for ads from that time period selling photography as a business opportunity, aka selling shovels to miners. I'm mainly looking at it from a perspective of an invention creating a small business boomlet.
