Hello and welcome to my blog.

This is the first in what I hope will be a regular series of posts on macro and micro economics, some politics and my views on business.

I describe my political and economic views as 'Libertarian Lite' - generally I believe in small Government and social and economic liberty but within some limits, usually completely arbitrary ones I admit.

My aim is to write this so that a reasonably intelligent person without any formal economics knowledge can understand it. I apologise in advance if people with a greater amount of knowledge find the explanations a little tortuous as a result.

Most of all I hope to generate a little light where too often there is only heat. Oh and also I hope to avoid using horrible clich├ęs.
