My feelings are a lot clearer about what to do in life. Many thanks to all those who volunteered an opinion, on LJ or privately. I'm especially pleased to hear that my political rants are not rubbish. My new one, about Free Trade and what's wrong with it, should appear here in a few hours. Comments welcome, including suggestions as to whether there is a better place to submit such articles.
Update: I cancelled the rant because I got a huge list of replies of the form: You don't speak proper economics, and you make a left-wing point, therefore you must be an idiot. I need to write a version that makes the argument as clearly as possible.
