My last blog comment was on 20 December, since when I have been busy on other things: from changing accommodation and organising building work, to having an accident, to lecturing on matrix algebra. Right now, I could be mistaken for John Hegley’s character Eddie, who doesn’t like furniture. So, there are some more jobs ahead before resuming my analysis of the economics of imperialism.
