Iakovos Alhadeff

Biography

I have studied economics to postgraduate level. I never worked as an economist though. I worked in the field of charter accountancy
and I completed the relevant professional exams (the Greek equivalent of the English A.C.A.). My essays are written for the general reader with no economic or accounting knowledge, and the emphasis is on intuition. All my documents are extremely pro market and quite anti-socialist in nature. I admire economists from the Chicago and the Austrian School i.e. Milton Friedman, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Henry Hazlitt, Murray Rothbard. I am Greek and English is not my first language, so I hope you will excuse potential errors in my syntax.
