I wonder how much the convoluted Gregorian calendar costs the economy — not only in terms of programming computers and clocks (and dealing with associated bugs) but also in terms of missed appointments because it’s impossible for most people to tell without checking a reference calendar what day of the week a particular date falls on.

There are good alternatives.
