Although the wife disagrees (“yes dear“), my economic & politically views are hard to pin down: FA Hayek, Ayn Rand, Adams, Madison, Deming, the entire Bill of Rights rather than just the first amendment (“the 2nd defends the 1st”), Solzhenitsyn, Ben Graham, Churchill, and Monty Python (grin), sometimes liberal, sometimes libertarian, sometimes conservative (“straight but not arrow”).
