I welcome comments and questions on, criticisms of and additions to the analyses contained in these blog posts. There is a 'comment' tab to click on at the end of each post, though it is not so evident.
People commenting should be willing to have their points discussed. Where there are issues raised that deserve a reply, I will attempt to do this within a reasonable time in a new post. Please keep your remarks concise and to the point, and, where appropriate, cite sources for what you are saying.
The idea is to develop the analysis under the general heading of The Economics of Imperialism'.
