I think I've changed my mind.
This blog is going to be the novel I've been writing, Economics 101. And, if it turns into a series, the series. I think.
The (first) novel will be here: (placeholder).
The rough draft of the first novel is here: (http://joel-rees-economics.blogspot.com/2016/04/economics-101-novel-index.html).
I wish I had the money to run my own servers dedicated to my writings. The connection fees and the current perverted structure of the Internet, and the perversions imposed on my tools, all militate against such independence.
Once upon a time, each computing device connected to the network was a server. With Intel and their ilk promulgating their perverse Internet of Things (TM), it just ain't so anymore. And we are all being corralled into their for-pay universe.
But I gotta somehow make money from my writings.
And, right now, I have to get some sleep.
Wow. Fourteen page views before I can even get any content up.
We need to talk more about economics in our daily conversations.
So much of what we do affects not just our own future, but the people around us and even people far away from us.
We don't need economics as an excuse for tyranny, whether political, social, or emotional. But we do need to talk more about the economic effects of what we do.
To that end, I'm writing a novel that attempts to provide a simplified framework for talking about the basics of economics. Right now, it's in my freedom blog ( first chapter or so: http://free-is-not-free.blogspot.jp/2016/03/economics-101-novel-ch00.html), because it is definitely a freedom-related topic.
I'm thinking, however, of moving it here as it comes together and maybe evolves a bit, along with other economics-specific rants. But I'm not sure. I might end up deleting this blog.
Since neither Google nor Blogspot seem to be telling me this is too many, I've decided to keep this blog for new rants that focus on topics of economics.
Concerning Economics 101, a Novel, mentioned above, I am going to put an index page here (http://joel-rees-economics.blogspot.jp/2016/04/economics-101-novel-index.html) and keep the novel itself in the freedom blog (http://free-is-not-free.blogspot.jp/).
