Just a short note to say a huge thank you to all the readers of this blog, whether frequent or occasional, for your interest during 2016. I have enjoyed taking my posting a bit more seriously this year, and have tried to vary the length and content from day to day. I hope to build on this in the months ahead.
In the meantime, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in 2017. Storm clouds may seem to be gathering across the world in some ways, so this is no time to be complacent, but I do keep a faith in humanity as a whole and in its ability to solve its problems, in the long run at least. Even if, as Keynes famously said: “in the long run we are all dead.” Yes, but not all at once.
