Losing my religion

I'm just coming to the end of a happy secondment with the high priests of the economy. It'll be strange to be back in the real world, among people who may not know the theology, the litanies, or the approved responses.
At least I will have the web to guide me through the dark days. One source of illumination is Samuel Brittan. Not that he's especially complimentary about those of us who earn their crust within the public sector, but there's loads of good stuff on this site, and it's fairly easy reading. Good articles include this one concerning Economics as religion, and this defence of cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker.
