Basically I just want to encourage you to read this paper by Hans-Werner Sinn and Timo Wollmershäuser. It has also been endorsed by Martin Wolf.
It's pretty difficult stuff and I don't actually expect many if any readers to actually read it. But you really should; it's illuminating even if you don't understand every sentence.
About commenting Jesse Schell's book on game design: I still intend to do it. But last week my search for a new job has turned out to be pretty crazy. I had sent out the application quite often because I remembered the last time I was looking for a job. That was right after finishing university, in November 2008, one month after Lehman Brothers had gone bust. Back then I got a job in March 2009 which also was the month when the world's stock markets stopped falling. The Dax was at 3600, if I remember correctly, and, fortunately, I was quite an optimist back then, too.
Anyway, the job application was pretty difficult back then and I was probably lucky that my second interview already resulted in the kind of job I got. Last week, however, things were radically different. My phone was ringing almost constantly - even on Friday which was a public holiday. It seemed as if every single human resources guy I had written wanted to call me back as soon as possible. The paper linked above may help explain this, by the way.
I've already been introduced to some very interesting jobs. Moreover, I think I'm going to walk into salary negotionations with a fairly strong bargaining position. Anyway, the constantly ringing phone is my excuse for not writing on the blog as much as promised :)
