Till Anna — som fick mig att överleva tre ändlöst långa gymnasieår.

Och till Ulf — som skriver den sorts musik som glömskan inte rår på.

First memory

Ararat by Louise GlückLong ago, I was wounded. I lived
to revenge myself
against my father, not
for what he was—
for what I was: from the beginning of time,
in childhood, I thought
that pain meant
I was not loved.
It meant I loved.

Tribute to Björn Skifs

My moral compass (personal)

This is the advice I’ve always given my sons and daughters when they’ve come and asked for guidance when confronted with momentous moral issues in life:

Ask yourself — Can I do this and still like what I see in the mirror tomorrow when I wake up?

That moral compass has served me well for almost half a century now, and I’m sure it has also helped my youngsters to become the good and honest people they are.

Yours truly among top economics influencers to follow

8 Nov, 2021 at 10:51 | Posted in Varia | 3 Comments

New outlook … | LARS P. SYLL Mainstream economics has sadly made economics increasingly irrelevant to the understanding of the real world. Trying to contribute in making economics a more realist and relevant science, yours truly launched this blog in 2011. Now, ten years later and with millions of page views on it, yours truly is — together with people like e.g. Paul Krugman, Nate Silver, Dani Rodrik, Thomas Piketty, Steve Keen — ranked on Focus Economics’ Top Influencers to Follow list. I am, of course, truly delighted.

Yours truly’s blog added to Library of Congress

The United States Library of Congress has selected your website for inclusion in the historic collection of Internet materials related to the Economics Blogs Web Archive. We consider your website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record.The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them … With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper.

I am — of course — truly awed, honoured and delighted that my blog is considered an “important cultural artifact” …

En plats i mitt hjärta (personal)

6 Nov, 2021 at 17:07 | Posted in Varia | Leave a comment

östra Östra kyrkogården i Lund är en plats som alltid betytt mycket för mig. Hit har jag kommit många gånger för att söka tröst och vila för min själ. Tre av de människor jag älskat mest i mitt liv ligger begravda här. I dag tände jag ljus för dem alla — min älskade Kristina, min bror Peter, och min vän Bengt.
