    The other guy I read regularly is Barry Ritholtz who just announced his book Bailout Nation. His blog is The Big Picture. It is the best source of stock market information. I was uncomfortable letting him manage my assets. Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Even the title of that book is so daming!

    Well I look at the Big Picture and occasionally Bradford DE Long. Barry's new book will be an eye opener for people who dont follow him. He has been a long term critic of the current kleptocracy. I doubt he uses that word. celletto

    Bradford De Long looks an interesting character and I hope people may start to listen to him amongst others of the same ilk. This whole thing has now inevitably blown up over here and the consequences are really shocking. This sort of situation does make you look at the Human Race and wonder if we ever did have any values. Certainly in the "affluent" West. There has been an interesting discussion on the BBC website entitled Does Capitalism still work? I don't really want to post it on NCC for fear of it resulting in one of those threads that goes on forever and goes nowhere! Have a look.

    My source for "deprivatiation" is today's Bradford De Long home page. He is an American economist who is part of the NBER.

My Bio

I studied cello at the R.S.A.M.D. from 1973 to 1978 with Joan Dickson, leaving with a DRSAM Teachers and Performers.
In 1977 I began my career as a freelance cellist with all the major orchestras in Scotland, including, B.B.C. S.S.O., Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Scottish Opera. I also recorded many shows for Scottish Television in their Cowcaddens Studios.
In 1978 I was a founder member of Bellarmine Arts Centre which later produced some of the finest string players in Scotland.

In 1980 I stopped teaching to accommodate my busy freelance schedule, adding summer seasons as Max Jaffa's cellist to my work.

In 1988 I took up the post of full-time cello teacher in Glasgow and cello tutor for Glasgow Schools Symphony Orchestra.
From 1992 to '96 I became the Senior String tutor at Strathclyde Arts Centre which involved the organizing of three string orchestras and their tutors as well as conducting the Senior Orchestra. I also went into orchestral management, booking orchestras for U.K. Tours with big-name stars such as Rod Stewart, Neil Sedaka and Bread.
In 1996 to 1998 I took over as the Music Coordinator for the Arts Centre, taking responsibility for all the groups involved.

Since then I have concentrated a lot of my teaching in Primary Schools. I have found it to be one of my most productive times in my teaching.

In 2005 I organized a very successful Glasgow City wide workshop for 30 cellos and 10 Double Basses, taken by the eminent cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. It is a start for what I hope will become Glasgow�s first Cello Orchestra.
I am married to Caroline, a 1st violinist in the R.S.N.O. We have 3 children. Adam 18, Fraser 16 and Kate 4
