Welcome to my forum for friendly pragmatists

Who am I? What is the purpose of this blog?


The owner of this blog studied law and sociology. He worked in banking and asset management for 20 years and has been a consultant for over 10 years.

This website is conceived as an alternative to social media. It is intended to encourage responsible reflection and constructive exchange. Rigorous realism is essential.

Well-considered arguments from several sides are the goal, not a large network.
