NOTES[change | change source]
Economics[change | change source]
- The term "information asymmetry" implicates the study of decision-making where one party has more or better information than the other. In effect, Magog acknowledges an imbalance which might cause decision-making and its consequences to go awry.
- Moral Hazard. Economists distinguish "moral hazard" involving hidden actions from "adverse selection" involving hidden information. Both are special sub-sets of information asymmetry; and both exacerbated in Wikipedia by the unexamined consequences of the hortatory WP:Assume Good Faith.
- Nobel laureate Paul Krugman explains moral hazard as "... any situation in which one person makes the decision about how much risk to take, while someone else bears the cost if things go badly."

Seven Circuits[change | change source]
The seven dō or circuits were administrative areas stretching away from the Kinai region in different directions. Running through each of the seven areas was an actual road of the same name, connecting the imperial capital with all of the provincial capitals along its route. The seven dō were:
- Tōkaidō (running east along Japan's Pacific coast).
- Tōsandō (northeast through the Japanese Alps).
- Hokurikudō (northeast along the Sea of Japan coast).
- San'indō (west along the Sea of Japan coast).
- San'yōdō (west along the northern side of the Seto Inland Sea).
- Nankaidō (south to the Kii Peninsula and the islands of Awaji and Shikoku).
- Saikaidō (the “western” island, Kyūshū).
Gokaidō[change | change source]
The Gokishichidō roads should not be confused with the Edo Five Routes (五街道 Gokaidō), which were the five major roads leading to Edo during the Edo Period (1603–1867). The Tōkaidō (road) was one of the five routes, but the others were not.
