Economics

I am an economics geek.

For most of my life I was a hard-core, Friedman-esk, Chicago school, free-market capitalist.

I am now disillusioned with that model and, looking back, find it rather simplistic.

But since 2008 I've been trying to work out a model that works. I am disenchanted with the free market and I don't really think that socialism is the answer.

I'm starting to think about something I'm starting to call "highly regulated capitalism". An economy where business competes, but where the state sets a high baseline in terms of safety, worker rights, environmental concerns, and more.
