Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But where did you get it from?

Most economists teach a theoretical framework that has been shown to be fundamentally useless. -- James K. Galbraith

D K Matai posted a large amount of material recently on FT Alphaville and the original source was his site


This article dated 16th December 2008 on this quirky site (mi2g...spooky) was entitled "Why Cutting Rates to 0% may not work". It is based on and incorporates a letter from Professor Mason, one of Matai's community of members of the Asymmetric Threats Contingency Alliance

The Asymmetric Threats Contingency Alliance is a philanthropic expert initiative founded in 2001 by mi2g to understand and to address complex global challenges. ATCA conducts collective Socratic dialogue on opportunities and threats arising from climate chaos, radical poverty, organised crime, extremism, informatics, nanotechnology, robotics, genetics, artificial intelligence and financial systems

Professor Prof Joseph Mason, a distinguished ATCA Contributor; Senior Fellow at Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania; Moyse/Louisiana Bankers Association Chair of Banking at the Ourso School of Business, Louisiana State University; and Financial Industry Consultant at Empiris Economics for his timely submission in regard to The Great Unwind Socratic dialogue

...even spookier bearing in mind your own Socratic series....great minds think alike, evidently....

Maybe it's worth a Diary once you've assimilated it....?

ATCA seems a bit like ET but maybe could use a humour transplant.....
