A week-old blog

What do you think?

It was the second day of the crisis when I started this blog. A week ago. It now has six postings, somewhat varying in style and depth. It would be rather useful for me if you gave me feed-back. Its direction, the topics, everything. Please.


  1. I'm looking forward to reading this blog retrospectively in a year or so ;-)

  2. I have been reading it all so far (no promises for future). I guess I am interested in your opinion. I wonder what is your goal with it though. it is not immediately informative. It sounds a bit too overarchingly theoretical. Probably I would appreciate more analysis. Is it for me to understand what is going on, or for you to point back 9 months from now to say "I told you."

  3. You are very nice to say this, and to read it.

    However, I don't think it would be worth the effort to produce this blog just to look back in a year and say I was right. And anyway, in all likelihood I am wrong.

    That is exactly the point. Writing here helps me to structure my thoughts in this incredible time. I really mean the word 'incredible': it goes against so many axioms we took for granted re the way the economy works, what the political managers of the economy could and could not do, what the societies would believe etc.

    And, we are witnessing the birth of the 'global policy', while trying to figure out how to think about it. All in real time. It could not get more exciting.

  4. Tamas,

    I really like your blog. The past six months you have been putting forward an impressive commentary, from a unique point of view. Continue this way.
