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