The Wild West ... the outback ... The new world of the 1800s was a time of true liberty. People stood on their own merits. They won or they lost and they reaped the rewards or swallowed the consequences. There were no cubicle dwelling civil servants hell bent on saving you from yourself. No planning permits no licenses no permissions no heritage overlay no bylaw no regulators no inspectors. And guess what ... it worked

This site is set up to provide a forum for a number of like minded professional economists to post and comment on contemporary issues. There are a number of regular contributors whose bios are made available on the site. Most if not all of these contributors use a pseudonym for the simple reason that they are practicing economists who must take into consideration the commercial implications of posting their opinions.

While some may feel that this is a bit of a gutless approach it is the only way we can ensure free and open discussion without jeopardising our paycheques.

Will Farrell goes into bat for Obama

Dont you love it when celebrities get all political. Will Farrell recently jumped to obama's defense, airing the following tv ad.

It is so endearing watching extremely wealthy celebrities complain about corporate incomes? Whats the bet that will is one of those guys that quite proudly and self righteously declares himself a prius owner, and forgets to disclose that he parks his little underpowered rice burner right next to his gold platted hummer.

The following links are to parodies of wills ad. If your time poor the first one is is the funnier of the two.

The beauty of the web is that it gives everyone a voice not just the celebs.
