Tim Worstall is an Englishman who has failed at many things. Thus his turn to writing, the last refuge of many who could make a living no other way. He is, as an example of his business and financial perspicacity, the head of the international scandium oligopoly: the only commodity which has not risen in price in the past decade. Odd bits and pieces of his writing have been known to turn up in The Times, the book pages of the Daily Telegraph and the Philadelphia Inquirer, he’s been a long term contributor to TCS Daily and also blogs for The Business and the Adam Smith Institute. He is currently only 6 months late (Sept 2007) with his book manuscript.
As to his views, well, read the blog.
Best blogging moment so far: being called a "pendant" by Polly Toynbee. Not, as he thought, an ornament to be cherished and hugged to one’s bosom, but something close to a tit.
