Catching Trains To Go To Market

There is so much going on in the real world and so little in our UK domestic main stream media that scratching around elsewhere is the only option.

One item that did attract my attention was picked up on Some Assembly Required with a link to the article below on Baseline Scenario.

As it involves the history of US railways with a different take on the wonders of the late 19th Century so-called “market economy" together with political corruption, fraud and all the rest I could not resist it.

The writer suggests that if we are going back to the past then this is where we are headed, if we have not already arrived.

Anyone for HST2?

  1. Last year we visited Standen, the Arts and Crafts National Trust house in West Sussex built between 1892 and 1894 for a prosperous London solicitor James Beale.

    Apparently Beale made his money via railway land deals in North London to bring the Midland Railway to St Pancras.

    I tend to agree that the business and political world was corrupt then and is corrupt now.
