Nanotechnology: Good Things in Small Packages

Glenn Harlan Reynolds: Is it going to change the world? Or, as one article recently asked, is “nano” in danger of becoming the new “turbo”--a marketing term that doesn't have much to do with what's inside the box? The answer is both, I'm afraid, and that poses problems for investors, regulators and consumers.

Then there's the nanotechnology that's just, well, fake. It may turn out to be the most dangerous kind to date. Earlier this year, newspapers reported that a German cleaning product called Magic Nano had been recalled after dozens of users suffered lung problems.
