    Evidence it, demonstrate your knowledge. This keeps getting thrown out like a fact where really you are not even scratching the surface of the granularity of international trade. I posted a long while back why, in my opinion, your line of argument here is incredibly misinformed at best. I...

    EU referendum

    Your post is truly characteristic of the out campaign and its professionalism and over reliance on populist statistics, quotes and emotive rhetoric. Do any of you do any actual research, or just rely on a few select sites to provide you with soundbites? The quote is fake.

    EU referendum

    Net when viewed as one country. Across 27 countries we aren't the main trading partnerfor any of them. The comment of "trading deficit" in isolation doesn't paint a true picture of the relationship. You're a portfolio manager I memory serves? I'd be interested in seeing your opinion of my...

    Do you have a source for the above paragraph, I'd be very interested on reading more into this. Thanks

    I would argue that is not the case. Intelligent man, committed to his work, yes. But in my opinion he is most certainly not one of the leading economists in the country. He has some interesting, if embedded views. its probably worth noting, for clarity, that he is also a huge proponent of...

    So, most of your post here was about trade, yet it you appear to be pretty quick to dismiss it. I guess I just don't understand your angle. I discussed a few of your points in my first post. Go back and re read it. Not because I think I have all the answers, but rather I think the trade side of...

    Teachers of Bluemoon

    This thread is definitely just a fishing exercise, right? It amazes me how people can be so dismissive of teachers. They provide such a critical service to our economy, education wise, economically, culturally, and yet there are those who are so dismissive of them as a group. The rhetoric is...

    Explosions at Brussels airport

    Yeah, the interview I was referring to was about 9/11 truthers, forgot to mention that. But I also remember the study you're talking about. The human mind is a complex thing, huh

    Doesn't sound all that bad to me.... In all honesty, I should naturally be an "outer". The tories aren't trying to cap my bonuses and are traditionally in favour of deregulation in finance. Maybe I should rethink a few things

    We have that also, look at the "teabag" issue that Boris discussed today.

    Explosions at Brussels airport

    There was an interesting interview I saw (if I remember I'll post a link, it was on youtube) and it was discussing how evidence contrary to an opinions strongly held belief actually had the effect of strengthening their initial view. I think it has an actual name, but it escapes me. anyway, the...

    Explosions at Brussels airport

    Ah right, thought it wouldn't ok be some how. Funny, how when presented with something that contradicts their embedded world view, people become so good at rearranging goal posts You've no idea why I took the picture, so don't presume to know my motivations. Just glad I had it handy.

    EU referendum

    Fair comment, but the two are inextricably linked. You quote GBP 9bn, and I've repeatedly posted that every academic paper I've read puts the externalities as much higher than the GBP 9bn p/a. In essence, you're saying the tangible net outflow is worth reocuping, even if that GBP 9bn is an...

    EU referendum

    I've seen the standard of your usual sources so I'm not surprised you can't find information supporting the opposite side of the argument. Anyone interested there's a nice article in the ft today about the analysis on brexit across three institutes. For those who actually want to read about...

    EU referendum

    I replied to your post that was arguing trade wouldn't be affected. Then magically all of a sudden when I offer a response "it's not about trade" Funny that. I'll respond to the rest of your post when I have the time, but it looked a lot like opinion being passed off as fact on a cursory glance

    EU referendum

    This is argument is raised time and time again, and its such point taken as gospel by many of the out campaign, but it really tells very little of the story. We buy more than we sell to the EU. Fine. However in macroeconomic terms what does this mean? In Isolation, not a lot. The question you...
