Detlev Schlichter In The Mainstream Press Now

Our resident Austrian in London, Detlev Schlichter, (of whose writings I've been keeping track of here, here, here and here) is now being courted by the mainstream press following his blogging action at He recently had an essay published in the Wall Street Journal and, just over a week ago, was invited to take part in a televised studio interview for Reuters Insider magazine.

Meanwhile in Taiwan, the mainstream press and the politically active students don't seem to even be aware of the nature and extent of Taiwan's problems in regard to monetary and fiscal instability. None of the politicians are publicly talking about this, much less Tsai Ing-wen or Ma Ying-jeou, and aside from the odd letter from me, the Taipei Times continues to ignore the dangerous prospect and the corollary imperative of radical, monetary and fiscal reform.

Being able to say "I told you so!" isn't going to be much of a consolation.
