I hereby welcome myself to WordPress.com!
The purpose of this blog is to practice my wordpress skills, while commenting, occasionally, on goings-on at The Automatic Earth (TAE) — http://theautomaticearth.org — a strange little economics/big-picture blog that gets some things right and some things wrong, with a commentariat (stable of comment-makers) that gets even more things wrong. In that respect, not unlike all of us tragic characters. But I shan’t comment on everything I find wrong; no time for that. Just a few things that strike me, especially matters monetary and economic. The rubbish that one can find on TAE with respect to investments and precious metals is, for me, big-inner-groan-inducing, and perhaps the major impetus to this little blog. I will get around to a more-detailed intro, perhaps, on the “About” page, sooner or later.
In any case, Welcome All (apart from self)!
