Welcome to my website.
On this site you will find a selection of my writing, on a range of subjects: philosophy, politics, art, finance and social business. Some of this work has been published elsewhere and some of which is only available here.
Each time a new piece of writing is added to the site it will also be profiled on this page. The work has been divided into three categories.
Shorter pieces are classified as articles
Longer pieces are classified as essays
Pieces that comment specifically on the work of others are classified as reviews
The site was launched in January 2009. I hope you find it interesting.

Over the past couple of years I have written two papers with Arvind Ashta, who teaches at the Burgundy School of Business, in Dijon. Both are concerned with the way in which religious ideas influence the business practices of micro-finance institutions. Our first paper, Hinduism and Microfinance, was published last year in a special edition of the Journal of Management Development, which focused on "Practical wisdom in the Buddhist and Indian traditions".
In April of this year the TLS published my review of two books, the first arguing for the need to rebuild trust in the financial services industry, the other arguing for radical reform of the financial services industry. You can read my review here.
