EH Carr & other articles: Temporary Catalogue because you can’t find them on Google Search

How I stuffed up

It’s not just me but often when you have upgrade your WordPress or any other component system, your website sometimes doesn’t work properly and you have to scramble to find out what’s wrong and fix it! I did fix it a month ago but missed the signs of something else that was wrong. And it took me a month to realise.

Sitemaps are how Google indexes your web site and all your articles. Now many of my articles have disappeared from Google. Hopefully that will be fixed soon! However, all my most popular articles have disappeared from web searches. I don’t know if they’ll ever come back.

Thousands of university students around the world, many from developing countries or areas in South Asia, Asia and Africa, will no longer be able to access My three articles on EH Carr What is History?

So as a vain attempt to allow people access and even get them up and running again, I’m at least trying to help anyone visiting my site to permit instant access to my most popular posts.

Investing in Shares 101: 2 Why Value Investing?

Approaches to Investing in Shares

1 The Bogus Concept of a Free-Market

Unfortunately, there is a lot of ideology involved with stock markets. This is primarily associated with the wealthy trying to assure themselves and others that whatever they do to acquire their wealth is honest and good for us all. Much of this ideology is associated with the concept of the free-market, which has been around for a long time.

Fitzherbert, quoted in article 1 Basics, criticises the academic theories (espoused even by nobel laureates) called efficient-market theories from the 1970s and 1980s (based on free-market ideology). The efficient-market theories were debunked by the early 1990s, but have continued in different guises under the banner of neo-liberalism. They are nonsense!

Now, I’m not suggesting you abandon your political beliefs or change your dinner party conversation, or your detailed knowledge of economic theory. I don’t want to interfere with your outside life.
