So, I wrote that paper for the IEA on the FTT. Which was published in a journal. So I’ve actually produced a piece in a peer reviewed journal.
Which sorta makes me a scientist.
Yes, I know, more a comment on low barriers to entry than anything else.
But I find that this paper has been cited. Here.
Worstall, T. (2011). The case against a financial transactions tax. Institute of Economic Affairs. London: Institute of Economic Affairs.
OK, so it looks like a Master’s thesis more than anything else. And it’s from hte Alma Mater to boot and we all know how the old boy’s network operates.
But does this count as a “real” citation and if it does does this mean I iz a real scientist now?
