to a lack of time and new endeavours the publication has evolved in an open blog where I share my thoughts and delusions on the global economy and financial markets. These are posted on Seeking Alpha so that anyone can just jump in to post a comment, share their own views, correct me when I write utter nonsense or even just to say hi! These thoughts and delusions will generally evolve around a few core dynamics I believe are likely to shape and shake economies in the coming years. Here are a few I will often refer to and that I hope we can all debate together: • Over indebtedness of developed economies and how Keynesian fiscal policies will force unexpected adjustments • Plutonomy and the elasticity of wealth disparity • The Chinese elephant on a bicycle and its flawed economic model • Lost in deflation and the limits of monetary policy in a fractional reserve system • Demographics, natural resources, and the illusions of perpetual growth I will regularly try to add a small stone to the edifice, dig deeper into these concepts, and with your help, try to connect the dots between the daily noise of the financial markets and the core secular shifts above that may profoundly change this complicated but never uninteresting world we live in. I hope this will be an entertaining journey that may help us climb the never-ending learning curve of macroeconomics.
