Marginalia

The man who gives geeks a good name

The Independent on Sunday had a big interview with me, penned by Susie Mesure. Here’s a short extract (quote from me):

“People today don’t become economists to make the world a better place. Maybe that’s going to change because we’re facing this crisis. We may get a new generation of economists whose mindset has been shaped by this and they want to make the banking system safer and the world more equitable and, dare I say it, more efficient. After all, this stuff really matters, so there should be some room for some idealism and for people who want to make it work better because they think it matters.”
