To "save the world or leave clear instructions." To be an economic solutions architect, a *Louie Armstrong, a *Whitney Young, a *Mozart of economic design (or even just a *Hummel or *Clementi!). Phil is admittedly an aspiring "armchair messiah," a quixotic "idea commando." An individualist? For sure. An eccentric? Mayhap - but at least with a sense of humour/humeur/humor (triple citizen: Can/Qué/US!).

Don't strain - you've got nothing to prove except to yourself... - don't force it, don't fight it... just ASK THE OBVIOUS QUESTION
and ACCEPT THE OBVIOUS ANSWER and go on, build on it, and ask the NEXT obvious question, etc.
(Thankyou, *Obvious Adams!)

Phil is an independent scholar who has read economic history with *John Kenneth Galbraith at Harvard and *Paul Rosenstein-Rodan at Boston University (both of whom knew Keynes personally), economic system design with *Philippe Crabbé at the University of Ottawa, macroéconomie avec *Jean-Sylvain Gauthier à l'U.duQuébec à l'Outaouais, corporate strategy with *George Norman at Tufts U. and has a BA-MA in ancient languages and linguistics from UofToronto. Phil tolerates faith-based mainstream economics with a long-term view gleaned from courses with *Stephen Bailey (human evolution) and *Simon Steel (astronomy) at Tufts.
