MB over Christmas


Thanks everyone for the support this year. It was another great year of tracking the economy within its global context, as well as pouring scorn on the Rum Corp.

Leith and I hope that you all enjoy a merry and safe holiday period. So does the team at the MB Fund, Damien and Tim.

Chris Becker will take over with daily posting through the new year.

Leith will return January 8 and I’ll be back Jan 15.


The MB Fund will obviously still be in operation throughout. The contact details are below.
