My economic scale

• Long, long ago as a lad with high hopes I studied economics at university. Back then we had pro-cyclical and anti-cyclical economic policies, elastic and inelastic demand. We had things called 'Giffen Goods', which may or may not even have existed.

Later we got PPPs (Public Private Partnerships) – not many of them around now. We've had bull markets and bear markets.
