I'm a retired accountant interested in the interface between classic accounting and orthodox economics. By 'classic' I mean the accounting that emerged from Italy in the 1300s and the advent of consolidated accounting in the USA in the 1890s with the formation of United States Steel. Also interested in philosophy and a fan of Wittgenstein's 'final solution' in his Tractatus. I live in Lane Cove, Sydney, Australia. As a hobby I run a U3A creative writing group. My only hard published book is my M. Phil Thesis: Education as a Solution to the Problems of Western Civilization? available from Sydney University's Fisher Library.
An extraordinary adventure in which a Rousseauesque natural man living in an idyllic island is frustrated to find that the mystery of money precludes him from proceeding with his capitalist vision until a possible solution by negative inflation is explained to him.
