Re: A new cattery on Crete

Please note the cattery is no longer available.

I emailed Manuela Liebich, and she has had to move back to Germany.

Re: The Will of the People

...As far as I see, it means the proportion of wages in company costs varies over time - but it always has, and this is cannot be directly connected to actual wealth, and so I can't see this is any big shakes. Tell that to the person who is working hard for 40 hours per week but still queuing at a ...

Re: The Will of the People

OK so we disagree on the meaning of words. If at one moment in time the top 1 % own 40 % of the world's wealth and everybody else owns 60 % and then we move on to a later time and the top 1 % own 50 % of the world's wealth and the rest own 50 % as far as you are concerned there has been no transfer...

Re: Where to buy boot laces in Irkalio?

Perhaps I'm being stupid but did you try asking in a shoe shop? I would have thought Heraklion might have one somewhere? I actually never thought to go to a shoe shop. On reflection, I think this is because most of them seem to be boutique stores - fancy shoes, but not selling essentials. I could b...

Re: The Will of the People

I simply cannot follow your convoluted argument, Toebs. How does the average person become wealthier? He works, earns money, consumes less than he earns and saves the difference. Well, income comes from three sources : rent, profit or wages. What you've described is income from wages. Let's use the...

Re: The Will of the People

That change represents a transfer of wealth from the providers of labour to the owners of original capital not just a proportionate increase in the wealth of both. No. It is wrong to call this a transfer - it implies a movement of something owned by one person, to another person. So, to provide a c...

Need a cat carer for three weeks, 100/euro a week

(Not quite sure if this is the correct subforum - I'm not looking for a professional, so I didn't quite feel the "services" forum was correct. Feel free to move.) I need someone to look after a cat and her five kittens, for three weeks, Heraklion area. Paying 100 euro a week, plus paying f...

Re: The Will of the People

My only argument with the article is that it has been going on for a lot longer than 10 years, more like 50. It is good to see main stream commentary starting to catch up with what economists, who don't follow "conventional wisdom", have been saying for a very long time. Not strictly Brex...

Re: The Will of the People

a reinvigorated brexit party could very well come into its own in a General Election (a strong possibility given the deadlock). I think given the last couple of years people are better informed about what leaving means - the various choices which have to be made, the important distinction between h...
