Anyone for a debate?

Madam – As a regular contributor to the letter pages I feel deep frustration. Nobody disagrees with me. Nobody agrees either, but I put that down to silent rapturous acceptance of everything I write. I have written quite nasty things about politicians and economists but no one complains.

I have made quite outlandish economic suggestions – like this is the best economic time there ever was and that growth and work are dead. I have suggested the way to solve unemployment is to create more jobs from less work. But nothing seems to stir the political and economic elite whom I regularly accuse of getting it all wrong and leading us further into the economic mire.

It is unlikely they are afraid of what I suggest; cowards of commerce terrified of being drawn into an economic debate they cannot win.
