Your humble narrator
“nobody can be a great economist who is only an economist” – Friedrich von Hayek
Don’t let the name fool you, I’m actually from Sheffield. I’m a former Conservative party and UKIP voter/sympathiser/member (depending on when you read this) with a liberal outlook on economic and social issues.
I have a BSc in Economic and Social Policy from Birkbeck College and am currently studying for an MSc in Economic History at the London School of Economics.
I am a Fellow of The Cobden Centre and former Contributing Editor of The Commentator. Writing mostly on economics and politics I have also written for (in no particular order) Standpoint, Economic Affairs, The Wall Street Journal Europe, Conservative Home, London Student, City AM, Global Politics and openDemocracy. I also write for Middlebrow Magazine on other topics; music, film, theatre, poetry etc, under a pseudonym.
