John Kenneth Galbraith: His Life, His Politics, His Economics

Richard Parker's 800 page plus tome on the great man is certainly worth a read and it cannot fail to make you wish some of the crude empiricists who pass as Economists these days could benefit from reading Galbraith's oeuvre.

Another Blog is Born

A new blog is born from Bob Emmerson an English national living in the Netherlands.

He is without doubt is one of the best writers around on technology and specifically communications technology. In the past he wrote for the excellent but sadly departed Byte Magazine and today he combines his freelance work with writing a column for Comms Business and being European editor of VON Magazine.

Bob was one of the first to pick up on the emergence of mobile data and converged communications technologies in the 1990's.
