CONGRATULATIONS on your excellent blog! As a mathematician and systems analyst I look at economics through ‘hard scientific’ eyes. I have thus analysed the data base of the Bank of England, especially with a view to the Cash and the Credit share in the money supply. So this is just to draw your attention to analysis rather than arguments and opinion which has resulted in a number of publications – also all on the web! They could be called ‘mathematical economics from an environmental perspective’, given the challenge of climate change.With best wishes for your work,

Hi,Great blog, indeed.But, Sabine;Isn’t what caused this economic collapse, was an over reliance on the mathematical risk analysis that guaged risk, incorrectly?While I know math has its place in all things, it still is only a compliment to the overall theory of economics rather than economics itself. You have to “feel” economics, in the overall instance.Best,Yourihttp://globalviewtoday.blogspot.com/
