As Ronald Coase said in 1972

One important result of this preoccupation with the monopoly problem is that if an economist finds something—a business practice of one sort or other—that he çloes not understand, he looks for a monopoly explanation. And as in this field we are very ignorant, the number of ununderstandable practices tends to be rather large, and the reliance on a monopoly explanation, frequent.

Biggest wave ever surfed: 80 feet!

Why Evolution Is True

You might have heard that a Brazilian man set the world’s record for surfing on the biggest wave yet.  Have a gander at this video, which the Guinness World Record folk have certified as being the biggest wave successfully surfed. Their information:

Riding the waves is something millions of people love to do, but nobody has ridden a wave as big as Brazil’s Rodrigo Koxa.

The 38-year-old is now the official Guinness World Records title holder for the Largest wave surfed (unlimited) which measured 24.38 m (80 ft).

Koza rode the wave at Nazaré, Portugal, on 8 November 2017 but was awarded the Quiksilver XXL Biggest Wave award by the World Surf League (WSL) at an event in California, US, on Saturday 28 April.

Look at that monster! It must have been the ride of a lifetime!

The record-setter!
