The Glass Pyramid is a repository of ‘selected’ comments made by its operatives at various locations on the interwebs and the very occasional “Glass Pyramid Exclusive”.

No special knowledge or skills are claimed by Glass Pyramid operatives, though, when it comes to economics, so much pseudo fact and ‘truthiness’ gets peddled, lacking special knowledge or priestly training in the dark arts of modern economics may be an advantage.

When it comes to politics, The Glass Pyramid looks for pollies who try to improve things – regardless of which team they play for – but there is not much of that about these days, so giving many of them a hard time is the usual fare.  But Gold Stars are on offer for those that try hard to make a difference and keep plugging away.

The Glass Pyramid prefers not to join an economic ‘school’ (cult is often more accurate) because becoming fluent in their various belief systems is too much like hard work. Plus there is an entire industry dedicated to debating whether something is of a particular economic school or not and that stuff is not very exciting.   Having said that the Glass Pyramid does return to a few themes on a regular basis and tries to give credit where credit is due.   

Why a Glass Pyramid?   The Glass Pyramid that appears on the home page no longer exists.  It was located in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney and was demolished a few years ago.   The photo was taken on a glorious spring day when the purple Jacaranda was in full bloom

Why anonymous?  Knowing who someone is adds little to what they write. The author is dead anyway – or so our more arty associates in the Glass Pyramid cultural compound claim.  Read a few posts and decide for yourself.

Apologies for the generally shoddy spelling and grammar. Most of these transmissions are composed by Glass Pyramid operatives with one finger on an i-device, on a bus or train and they complain that it is really time-consuming fixing them in blog edit boxes.

By the time operatives get home from their day jobs the moment has usually passed and just getting them to paste their contributions into this blog chews up enough time (time which El Doggo (Head of Glass Pyramid research) insists his servants might better use throwing balls to fetch).
