I will be going to Auckland for the Australasian Tax Teachers’ Conference soon. I am delivering a paper on Marx and economic rent. I am not sure how much access to my blog I will have while I am away. If I do have time I suspect it will be re-posts rather than the articles currently floating around in my head such as ‘Lance Armstrong – capital personified’ and ‘Prosecuting paedophile priests’. We shall see.
Here is a list of some of my recent academic and media publications, some with links. Enjoy.
