Independent Scholars and Information Access (Patrick Mears, -Germany, 01/24/16 8:33 am)

I second John's suggestion to Clyde McMorrow--that he teach a university course as an adjunct. That is what I am doing here in Germany, and it has given me free access to JStor and Academia, as well as enabling me to attend professional conferences and the like at reduced rates.

Plus, it opens up new doors: I was recently asked to give a presentation in Tokyo in June at a professional seminar on the topic of China's recent economic downturn and its impact on automotive supply chains. This was an indirect result of teaching my World Trade Law class at the University of Mannheim.

Good luck, Clyde, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just wish to bounce ideas back and forth.

JE comments: This topic has raised a lot of interest. John Heelan, another independent scholar, has responded with a recommendation to check academia.edu, which has many scholarly papers available free of charge.

Thank you, Pat: I'd like to hear your preliminary thoughts on China's economic downturn. Yesterday I visited the North American International Auto Show. Times for Detroit's manufacturers are booming and optimistic. Much of the "why" can be expressed in two words: cheap gas.  People in America are lapping up huge trucks and SUVs like candy.

When we see $4 gas again, the pundits will be singing a different tune. 

I'll close with a photo of the next likely WAISmobile:  a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt.  All-electric, 200-mile range, flashy color.  Far cheaper than a Tesla.  My one concern is how to drive it to the East Coast or California.

Chevrolet Bolt, North American International Auto Show, 23 January 2016
