My wife is reading The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan on her Kindle. There is a movie about the book as well. She describes the thesis that plants trained the humans to change the human's behaviour to form an agricutural society to further the propagate plant species.

I haven't read it yet, but the immediate question is whether the market controls the humans, or do the humans control the markets for their gains? Chair's thesis is that the powers of the market control the humans to milk their upkeep. Another view is that of bubbles. Humans change their behaviour to reap the easy fruit, such as the easy availability of mortgage money. The recent ranges train certain trading behavior. Markets train governmental internuncios and nabobs to engage in certain protective artificial behavior.
