The Ongoing Collapse of Economics

Graham Caswell

My background is varied (you can find details on my Linkedin profile), but two experiences stand out. The first was that I lived in Sierra Leone for two years while it was the poorest country in the world (according to the UNDP), and while it was in the early years of a horrific civil war. My time there gave me a hatred of poverty, of lost opportunity, of lack of equality and of the wholesale waste of human potential. The second experience that has significantly informed my perspective is my time as a tech startup founder, which gave me a practical understanding of and appreciation for the power, innovation and magic of the global free market. Although I was very far from being a significant competitor to anyone, I participated enough to understand what the market does for us, and what it takes to compete. I love the freedom of the market, and what that freedom makes possible.
