MB turns one million


I’m not generally enamored of round numbers but I can’t help noting that yesterday MB passed through the 1 million page views in a month barrier:


Congratulations to us all (readers especially) for building a new, sane and increasingly powerful voice in Australian business media.

Next stop, 1 billion!

    Great result MB & more power to you.

    I am trying to subscribe, but keep getting “error code v6110

    can you assist

    Great result. Now put those numbers to use and create a political party.

    • Yep, MB deserves to go to the top by actually being the only forum that dares to be different to the establishment, kind of like Fox News.

    It is a great creddit to you all on the MB team, in what you are achieving.

    The independent quality information you people generate is wonderful.

  4. Gold stars all around chaps.

    Keep applying the steel toed boot of hard fact to where it’s richly deserved.

    In years to come, the insiders will deny they knew anything was wrong, this site will serve as reminder that it all mostly available.

    • Yep, the line MB is taking guarantees, in my opinion, that it will end up very highly regarded, seeing a messy end to all the “we’re different” mentality is inevitable. Kind of like Peter Schiff and dozens of others in the USA:

    I suggest next stop – creating a political party. But 21 century one, where debates going on online and every single member could have his say. What do you reckon?

    The independent analysis is good.

    But the continual reliance on neoclassical supply-demand and rational investor hogwash needs to be worked upon.

    You definitely need more:

    – Minsky
    – Fisher
    – Keen
    – Anyone else non-orthodox
    – Far more analysis of pure-credit based explanations for financial crises instead of ‘confidence’ rubbish
    – You also are very light on regarding behavioural finance concepts.

    But apart from this, you are still light ahead of the other jokers on line.

    You are doing well, but some of the less sycophantic readers can see the risk of you slowly slipping into narcissist category that so many of your ‘young gun’ economist brothers have.

    • Jeez , dude. You’re not reading enough WE hate confidence rubbish. Our entire approach to asset bubbles is credit based combined with tax distortions and supply side analysis.
