I have been absent from this blog for innocent reasons. First, during this election season, I have found Facebook more useful than this blog. Second, prompted by stupid statements by all presidential candidates, I have begun an long essay on the nature of work. (I think I have.) In the meantime, there is a lot of good stuff to rummage through on this blog. Summer time may be a good time to read my ever-topical series on international trade. (Remember that both Trump and Sanders are against it, by and large. Clinton does not know; she will sell her preference to the highest bidder.) As always with my didactic efforts, it ‘s directed at the ignorant intelligent and at the intelligent ignorant. If you are neither, this is not for you. Look for a series of nine short essays that all contain the words “protectionism” and “protectionist” in their title.
Or, you could read one of my three recent books:
Three books of mine are available on Amazon Kindle and on some other reading devices. None is a scholarly book. Two are in English and one in French. The first is entitled: I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography (2014).This one also exists in paperback. You can obtain the paperback from me through this clever email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s listed under my name: Jacques Delacroix. My second book in English exists only in electronic form. It’s entitled: Indecent Stories for Decent Women. (2015) It’s under the pen name: “Jean René Adolph.” Reflecting on its title will suggest why I am not using my real name in this one. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B018ZYR9DS
I have a third book, written in French, that is completely different from the others: Les Pumas de grande banlieue: histoires d’émigration. (2014) .This one is also only in electronic form. It’s under my real name: Jacques Delacroix.
I pay attention to feedback. Thank you. I am open to sponsoring and commercial publication of any of the three.
I also invite you to follow me on Facebook. (It’s under my name: “Jacques Delacroix.”) I am on a tear to make at least one politically incorrect statement each day in the interest of collective sanity. FB will be a main vector of such statements.
See you there.
