So I’ve decided I’m going to start blogging here, on my own site. This calls for a brief disclaimer.

The blog will be an edited version of my daily scribblings. Edited to be intelligible, but not necessarily intelligent. The content will range from thoughts on health economics to music and book reviews and also, no doubt, to the occasional bit of polemical nonsense.¬†I do blog elsewhere and you will find my writings on other blogs to be of a higher standard. Far less thought has gone into what you’ll read here. Its purpose is to allow me to practise my writing, and by making it public the hope is that I might receive occasional feedback on my ideas that I wouldn’t otherwise get.

To summarise: please don’t judge my credibility as an academic on what you see here.
