Opening Post

This is my second blog. The first is Social Democracy for the 21st Century, an economics blog from the Post Keynesian perspective.

But often there are things I like to blog about that are unrelated to economics: hence this blog.

I’ve chosen a quotation from Cicero as the title: “to live is to think” (vivere est cogitare, in Latin). This occurs in one of Cicero’s philosophical works:
loquor enim de docto homine et erudito, cui vivere est cogitare.

“for I speak of a man of learning and erudition, for whom to live is to think.”
(Tusculan Disputations, 5.111).
This, I think, is a nice sentiment for blogging.
