Open Thread 173

...

This is the weekly visible open thread. Odd-numbered open threads will be no-politics, even-numbered threads will be politics-allowed. This one is odd-numbered, so be careful. Otherwise, post about anything else you want. Also:

1: Comment of the week: more from an expert in the field on the future of digital therapeutics and why their price tag is so high.

2: And from the discussion of Accidental Superpower: China moves from being low-cost to high-expertise; Russia strong.
