Thanks for the plug. Dublin based academics should expect to be harassed by us soon as we want to increase the grown up attendance rate.

@Rob Gillanders

‘… increase the grown up attendance …’?

Whatever for? Refresher courses? De-indoctrination sessions? Streams for Ayn_een Randite and Mairteen_Feldsteen recovery groups? The Flat-earth efficient market hypotheses cults? the ontolically challenged? The epistemological new poor? Bleed1n positivists? Illusionists? Are you feelin aw-roight?

Best of luck …. (-;

Academics unite – why not?

We need leadership at every level – attend and have a voice. Learning is a continuum. Leverage and teamwork drive results, which can ONLY happen by a meeting of minds, absent any drug enhancing influence. Economists, learn from the past as a way of predicting & protecting our future,

Simple mind or simple truth?
