Quick Question

Adore alliteration.  Anyway.

Have finally finished Progress and the Invisible Hand, which was published in 1998.  Interesting discussions around what human progress entails and how changing theories of economics tie into it.  And why we might just be going to hell in a hand basket because of it.

Having not noted the page or particular sentence (paragraph?), one of the many points is how difficult the role of governing a country has become, in what is, essentially, a global economy.  Which leads me to the entirely unoriginal wondering (given that science fiction writers have used the device for decades) if it is time, in these days of global travel, of a global economy, global communication, global environmental stresses - is it time for a global government?


  1. Many thanks for stopping by - with such a wealth of fascinating information about historical remains/artifacts in Australia!

    PS Share your fascination, too, with Mitsouko scent!

  2. Me again!

    Many thanks for stopping by and the heads up. Have visited that website and will definitely check it out!

    Wonder if you have access to Wallander & The Killing (both in original versions: wonderful!) as well as Downton Abbey - which I must be the only not to care for! :-(

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Me again!

    Thanks for the heads up on Miss Phrynne! I love all things to do with crime (what an admission!).

    Am enjoying at the moment The Bridge - again part of current UK vogue for Scandi- noir series.

    Have a lovely weekend!


I post and check this blog very erratically (if you hadn't already guessed). Thank you for reading!
