THE BRAMBLE CAY MELOMYS

Drat we missed and now we miss

The Bramble Cay melomys:

A mouse-like rodent on a cay

First washed up then washed away 

It’s kicked a clod - like us one day.

Any loss like this diminishes me

When a tiny creature’s lost at sea

It’s the first but not the final one

And I’m the lesser that it’s gone

When all is said and Donne.

FOR ENGLAND 2016

You were so beautiful my own country

Your fields and fells the honest sun received

And under open skies the air was free

As all were equal and all bonds redeemed.

My place of birth you have grown sour and old

Uplifting hate to heart with evil lies

And now I find a touch that’s coarse and cold

With devilment in hard deceiving eyes.

LOSE-LOSE SITUATION

Economists don’t have a theorem for the situation where every action intended to improve individual welfare reduces aggregate welfare and thence individual welfare, in a downward spiral – maybe I can suggest Casino Deterrimality. Anyhow that’s more or less the situation that we are working towards now at the global level.

With massive excess liquidity and extreme volatility in financial flows, the link between currency strength and economic stability has collapsed.

TOO MUCH SUFFERING IN THIS NIGERIA

In the period 1974-79, I spent a good deal of time in Nigeria. I was especially involved in preparing Regional Plans for the then states of Kwara and Benue, and the Bauchi – Gombe Sites and Services Housing Project funded by the World Bank. I was working as an economist – regional scientist for the international multi-disciplinary engineering company Dar Al-Handasah.

JERRY’S CRAW STILL CHOKES ON TRUMP

‘spoke briefly to the press, saying he planned to have dinner with Rupert Murdoch, the conservative media billionaire who owns the Wall Street Journal, Fox News and several UK papers’.
