I am a bored corporate accountant who has been following the debt/deficit issue personally for nearly a decade. in 2012 I launched USDailyDeficit.com to live blog the US Cash Deficit and in 2015 My-Climate-Data.com to freely distribute public climate data. More recently, I have decided to use my unique accounting perspective to shed new light on a typically finance dominated sport.
"You could beat the doctor by replacing him with an equation created by people who knew nothing about medicine and had simply asked a few questions of doctors.
