Quote for the Week

Something for you young budding economists.

"There are four ways in which you can spend money. You can spend your own money on yourself. When you do that, why then you really watch out what you’re doing, and you try to get the most for your money. Then you can spend your own money on somebody else. For example, I buy a birthday present for someone. Well, then I’m not so careful about the content of the present, but I’m very careful about the cost. Then, I can spend somebody else’s money on myself. And if I spend somebody else’s money on myself, then I’m sure going to have a good lunch! Finally, I can spend somebody else’s money on somebody else. And if I spend somebody else’s money on somebody else, I’m not concerned about how much it is, and I’m not concerned about what I get. And that’s government. And that’s close to 40% of our national income."

Milton Friedman

Dude, as you can probably deduce from my blog, I'm very busy with other stuff.

I'm still writing, but more sporadically. I wanted to finish up Seekers in Shadow this year, but it'll depend on whether I can finish the stuff I need to do at work.

Thanks for the comments, I'll try my best!

I completely understand your situation. Just wanted to let you know that your work is appreciated and I think that you should be writing your storylines for Wizkids on an alternate-reality bid. You're definitely good enough and I can't get enough of your writing. =D
