Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

How old are we?

As we got a little interested in the age distribution of readers of this blog, I follow the Swedish royal suggestion to bring up a poll. Please contribute in making this survey representative.

And let's discuss, whether we should take on a mission to attract a batch of younger readers, or expand all age groups.

Let's have more respondents - afew


My own age is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything. What else helped me to set up the poll entires?

There wasn't any. It was Citibank that was blogging about how debt jubilees were a bad idea. Nobody paid any attention to them.

70 in February.

Recruiting younger folks to be leftist Democrats, though I may have to abandon them for Bernie Sanders soon.

Speaking of Bernie Sanders: Sanders names 'deficit owl' his chief economist (December 26, 2014)
A prominent advocate of bigger deficits and unconventional economics will be Sen. Bernie Sanders' chief economist when he becomes the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee in January.

Stephanie Kelton, a self-described "deficit owl" and a leading proponent of the alternative economics theory known as modern monetary theory, announced that she would be the chief economist for the minority on the Budget Committee Friday.

...

Modern monetary theorists, who have pressed their case in journals and blogs in the wake of the recession and ballooning federal deficits, argue that the federal government can never run out of money, as it can print its own, and that deficits are helpful for growth.

How many of us even knew there was a separate chief economist for the minority before her appointment?

Didn't you meet her? At the very least she now has a platform from which to speak to a national audience. Even Rachael Maddow, who usually eschews economic topics, might find her irresistible as a guest on her show - unless MSNBC execs veto the idea.

I (feebly) object to your age-group framing, which rather hurtfully places me in the second septile. (Life, the universe and everything are overrated anyway)

Feel like 40. actually, they say, 74. Never paid attention to the outsiders, though, since they were wrong about God the whole time.
