Yes, America Did Build That

constitution-scroll-small I have often been tempted to believe that the greatest contribution of the British people to the world has been the concept of a private limited liability company.  It was the development of this concept that created the environment for the invisible hand of capitalism to create the dynamic free economy.  And it was that […]

You Say You Want a Revolution

The Nature of Things & Utopian Dreams

Joseph Stalin and Vladimir Lenin When my grandmother was born a horse was the normal means of transport.  When my granddaughter was born the International Space Station was the brightest light in the night's sky. In other words, things change.   When I sat on the couch and watched the first man walk on the moon with my grandmother she didn't […]
