I am a professional Architect yet I have few other passions, hobbies, interests, babies… whatever you call it. First one is Literature. An intellectual engine, a soul of the world. I read tons of books… I actually even collect them, and have a nice private library. Although (given the beginning of digital readers era) very soon having real books is going to be a funny choice. Just like collecting those vinyl discs. A bit pity, isn’t it? After 500 years or so… My second “obsession” is Economics. The real engine without any intellectual BS. Whether we like it or not, it is after all what rules the world nowadays. Politics, wars, sports, culture, scientific progress, and the most sacred thing our private comfort – all that is totally dependent on the state of economy. So it would be a shame not to be interested in such a hot topic… In our capitalist life economics is like medieval elixir, a mystical philosophers’ stone. Sounds ironical….
