Ritchie and bondsJune 16, 2015 Tim WorstallRagging on Ritchie17 CommentsIf there was dramatic sell off there would be liquidity What? So he doesn’t understand finance either? previousThe No Breakfast FallacynextDifficult to tell 17 thoughts on “Ritchie and bonds” Ralph Musgrave June 16, 2015 at 11:40 am I’ve just set out a few flaws in Ritchie thinking on my own blog: http://ralphanomics.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/beware-of-using-sectoral-balances-to.html dearieme June 16, 2015 at 11:49 am It would be simpler, Tim, to list anything he does understand. Or at least shorter. Noel Scoper June 16, 2015 at 3:37 pm “The Pope says technology and finance are blocking the path to addressing climate change” says Ritchie. Since he deleted my post, I assume he approves of the Catholic Church’s position on contraception and its effects on population, AIDS, population growth and child mortality.

Given that he also allows Sue Queef and Guy Felching, I think we can take it that he and his wife do not enjoy an adventurous evening lifestyle. Like that should be a fucking surprise. abacab June 16, 2015 at 5:36 pm I imagine their horizontal refreshment department is as barren as their spirit cabinet. Salamander June 16, 2015 at 5:40 pm Does anyone know how this epic internet war between Tim and Ritchie start? Or was it so long ago that no one remembers the origin? Bloke in Costa Rica June 16, 2015 at 5:53 pm The Worstalls and the Murphys have always bin a-fightin’ and a-feudin’ ever since ol’ Silas Murphy done plugged great-grandpappy Zacharias Worstall down in Butcher Holler over a barrel of ‘shine back in ’27. abacab June 16, 2015 at 5:58 pm plugged him, y’say? Over a barrel? Now that’s a fudge-packin’ finger-lickin’ hard-timin’ marmite motorway of a euphamism I ain’t heard for a mighty long time 🙂 john77 June 16, 2015 at 6:17 pm Certainly there would be liquidity – for a vulture hedgie buying distressed assets! Murphy hates the rich (apart from himself – in a world context he’s not just in the top 1% he’s somewhere in the top 0.5%) so he’s happy to see all the sellers of government bonds losing tons of cash. john77 June 16, 2015 at 6:20 pm @ BiCR great-grandpappy Zacharias Worstall should have been in a wheelchair in ’27 if he was still above ground. Bloke in Costa Rica June 16, 2015 at 6:31 pm They marry young down in Butcher Holler, to their cousins, mostly. Van_Patten June 16, 2015 at 6:36 pm This is one of the worst blogs I have seen for some time – Bloke in Germany basically buries him alive, as does John Carter. However, Time you could add history, science and politics (at the very least) to the list of topics which the cretin doesn’t understand. I particularly like his post on him being ‘guilty’ of a crime in wanting redistributive taxation – it seems he is still in denial over the general election result! The Meissen Bison June 17, 2015 at 12:27 am Glen Dorran: He’s posted Lars Rimmer’s comment. Tailleur de Pipe also chimed in… Bloke in Germany June 17, 2015 at 7:42 am Well he says he’s “going down together” with someone in his first reply. The Meissen Bison June 17, 2015 at 10:04 am Yes, and elsewhere that he deserves correction. BraveFart June 17, 2015 at 2:52 pm A long, long time ago, I gave up reading Murphy’s sanctimonious circle jerk site, even when referred to particularly asinine postings of his. But it seems from what you report that I might have been too hard on him (and more particularly myself) if he is unwittingly allowing the current crop of pseudonyms to post. “You’ve all done very well!” – whoever you are.
