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.


  1. What's wrong with a good cliche?

    Glad you have started this, I'd be 'lost' without your insight! ;)

  2. your blog going to be like my blog? I started a bit stuck. That was July 08.

    So R, Lulu and me are waiting, patiently......we like cliches, tortuous explanations brightened up with a with a little bit of light.

    I am going to have to go and edit mine now as it's soooo embarrassing.

    PS Posted on here as I saw the late night link on MSE.....which is morphing into an odd kind of forum ATM....didn't want to bump up thread as who knows who would be checking out your blog? ;-)

  3. Oh ye of little faith!

    At least I managed one post. More to follow I hope.
