Religion - The Biggest Weapon?

My mind has recently been thinking about religion a lot over the past few months. I have come to realise, however obvious it may have been, that religion is probably the most powerful+destructive weapon of all.

Collaborative Consumption: Something New

Something which is starting to become rather popular, and has been dubbed "1 of 10 ideas that will change the world" by TIME magazine, is the world of COLLABORATIVE CONSUMPTION.

Euthanasia: What's Wrong with it?

As I was talking with my friends today, the topic of suicide came up. This is quite a touchy topic, but the topic of euthanasia is a whole lot more sensitive. TRUST ME!

It's Just a Credit Rating...Who Cares?

As you all might have heard, on Friday the United Kingdom had its credit rating downgraded by one notch. I'm not here to tell you guys exactly what happened, you can find out HERE. But what I'm going to discuss, is whether this is actually going to make much of a difference.

Guest Post: Household Money Spring Clean


Something that affects all of us is the household budget. Yet how many of us were taught to do so by either parents or schools? My father was certainly frugal but my mother much more likely to take receipts off things and shove bills unopened into a drawer. The latter had near devastating consequences, but luckily I picked up on the money saving ways of my father.

Keynes Vs Hayek Rap Battle Explained

The Keynes Vs Hayek Rap Battle is an incredibly useful educational resource, and I felt that I should uncover all the economic goodness that this 720p clip holds. So here goes:

On Monday I went to the famous London School of Economics to attend a talk by Dr Eammon Butler on the current economic situation and how Hayek would deal with things for the better.

Guest Post: Peer To Peer Lending - The New Face of Banking in 2013


In days gone by, the success of any potential business venture depended on your ability to secure funding from a traditional lending institution. Banks were omnipotent as financial establishments, and also able to influence whether or not a new business concept could be brought to market.

This has changed during the last seven years, however, with peer to peer lending providing an increasingly viable alternative to bank loans. It is particularly popular in the U.S., with the market leaders Prosper and Lending Club having invested more than $1 billion into ventures since their creation in 2006.

Life is like a Capital Good

As I was watching TV, I came up with an analogy for what life is. So here I am, with another boring metaphor trying to sum up what life is, trying to say wise words, trying to be heard.

Are there NO jobs out there? Think Again!

Watching the World Economic Forum debate at Davos on capitalism, I heard the sentence "there are no jobs out there" a numerous amount of times. I completely disagree with this, but I'm happy that I stumbled across it as it gives me a topic to write about.

Benefits System: Should we get rid of it?

The number of benefit fraudsters has increased by around 40% in the past 2 years according to the British Government. This arouses questions, especially whether the welfare system should be scrapped or left in its awful state.

Did we go over the Fiscal Cliff?

December the 31st saw the stressful arrival of the fiscal cliff. It seems to me that the media was once again over exaggerating the current economic situation, like it always does, making the cliff seem like a lion, when it simply is a cat.

HORSE MEAT & STAGNANT ENGLAND

Everyone's been talking about the horse meat scandal and the pessimistic economic forecast for the UK, and so I thought that I too might have a say in all that is going on.

The Beauty of Capitalism

Capitalism is the private ownership of capital goods and the means of production (e.g factories...). Today I feel that it is necessary for me to explain to you why Capitalism is truly the best thing that ever happened to the world.

Key Economic Concepts

A few students have asked me to write a blog post on some important economic concepts that we come across daily. I have therefore compiled a list of some famous ones as well as some that are not so popular terms.

Politicians : A lot of Faffing about (Continued)

Yesterday I looked at how, generally speaking, the politicians that this world has produced are pretty incompetent. I wanted to spend another evening discussing how we have given the government too much power and how they are seen to abuse it. In particular, I will be talking about MPs Expense Scandals.

Politicians: A lot of Faffing About

As you may have realised by now, I am totally against government intervention and for a TRUE free-market economy. So I would like to dedicate this blog post to talk about the incompetent politicians that this world has produced. A matter which I feel greatly matters to us all.

Redistribution of Wealth = WRONG!

Today the topic of concern is the redistribution of wealth. In my view and hopefully in your view, it is plain wrong. Unfortunately there are a bunch of people out there who feel that it is necessary to take away from those who have worked hard to give to those who are lazy. And I thought THEFT was WRONG!!!

Many Economists. Many Financial Problems.

I received a tweet yesterday asking me why there are a countless number of economists and yet we are in this financial mess. He has a point. I have an answer: "it's the governments fault".

Money, Money, Money

I wanted to go through with you guys the concept of money. As in what exactly it is. People think that money is extremely valuable. Yes to an extent it is, but money is worthless if it weren't for the goods or services for which it could be exchanged with.

Why studying only the "AVERAGE" is a pathetic idea

Around us are the problems of war, climate change and recessions, and the one thing that bugs me more than all this, is the overuse of the word "AVERAGE". When someone is researching what the grades are like in a certain class, it turns into what is the AVERAGE grade in the class, and I think that this is another problem with the education system. They tailor the class towards the average child. Those above cannot move onto more challenging work and those who are below the average don't generally get the extra help the need.

Why is Britain a "pessimistic" country?

Britain, it seems is a pretty pessimistic country. The country that discovered penicillin, locomotives and most importantly, the World Wide Web, has recently adopted a defeatist and cynical frame of mind. I mean, we are talking about the bloody country which went into World War 1. World War 2. And Bloody won both of them (everyone's a winner). These are the people who have lost their motivation, their spirit and most importantly their OPTIMISM!!! (I am generalising a bit here)

To bail or Not to Bail is the Question.

October 15th 2008 experienced the biggest financial crisis since the great depression. It also witnessed the US government throwing away money wastefully. $7,770,000,000.00 of it. I don't know about you, but I think that that is a lot of money.

Cheap Child Labour: What's Wrong With That? (CONTINUED)

Just 3 days ago, I wrote a blog post on how child labour is in fact good and that people make irrational judgements and immediately classify it as something which is simply wrong on many levels. I wanted to provoke reactions and I did do this as people came to me and said that I must be "insane". This post is me trying to justify myself once again.

Schools of Economic Thought

I thought that today I might go through the main schools of economic thought, followed in the world. There are websites which explain this, but none which collate and simplify them.
