Disillusioned commentary on Australian financial sector, politics, business, media... with attention occasionally distracted to the world outside... and intermittent reminder that rage is a more life-conserving irrationality than despair.

What we are about

Economic rationality meets human emotion... WTO protestors reject the former; many economists (irrationally in the face of all evidence) fail to allow for the latter. Might it be possible to simultaneously make both mistakes? We shall see.

We are located in Australia (not the land-locked, German-speaking country abutting Italy, Germany and the Czech Republic, but the large, largely desert island that some American and Australian politicians believe, wrongly, is the 51st United State).

We read:

  • The Australian Financial Review
  • The Economist
  • New Scientist
  • The New York Times
  • The Sydney Morning Herald
And other things besides.

Regrettably, except for the last two (which require registration), much of this content is limited to subscribers. We will try to paraphrase or quote sufficient for it to be apparent whether our commentary on these is biting and incisive, or ill-considered and idiotic.

So, what are the rules for writing a blog? Only one: start.

So, here it is.
