Alan Ecob


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.
