Childish hope

When making coffee in my Bialetti Venus 4 I thought: the reason I have difficulty in writing that long article which includes the views of Triffin, Witteveen, D'Arista, Kenen, Williamson, Sheng, Persaud, Woo and others is that I realise too many written pieces are waiting to be read, and long articles will never be read seriously, I mean seriously by people who should read them as they are the ones taking decisions about the future course of the world economy.

I also thought: the plea, the longing in my post of yesterday is too idealist, too childish, because how can you expect or hope (esperar expresa ambas cosas) that we may live one day in a world where everybody has equal chances?

However, it is that hope or longing that inspires my work.

I admire your hope in the future. I am not so hopeful.
