    When I heard my first lecture in Economics class in high school, I felt like I'd found my religion.  (It was a Christian private school, and I was already letting go of the organized religion, and found "salvation" in the logic of economics.)I ended up studying it in college and...

    And So It Came To Pass

    I just found a story I wrote on 21st september 2009. In it I said I found the whole Keynesian approach to alleviating the recession as a misguided attempt to buy our way out of trouble. Increasing debt and thinking the markets would respond as if they didn't know that the...
