About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be me, or be the caricature I portray myself all too often

ABOUT ME

I pretend to be relaxed but usually insanely busy. Apart from my job I am active at a political party and a trade union. In the hours that are left I do some dancing (on a very low level mind you), reading or cooking.

PHILOSOPHY

"No man e'er was glorious who was not laborious" (B. Franklin)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I see some people, we discuss stuff, they tell me about their passions.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Wonderful trip from the North of France to Barcelona in chinos to get the riviera feel.

Interests

Politics, economics and if you can explain what you do in life in a remotely understandable manner, that too!

Music, Movies & Books

Opera for sure, seen 7 while living in Vienna.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

boring

Teach, Learn, Share

I know economics, in and out. It starts as a subject of study, the behaviour of mankind under the limits of this world i.e. scarcity. It becomes a way of thinking, looking at the world, perceiving the world. And it becomes a way of life. Sometimes beautiful in the way it can quantify, sometimes narrow it's focus on efficiency. In essence it something that needs to be challenged all the time. And I like being challenged.
