Undertakers make sense….

I’m no economist – I just write crime fiction. But when a friend of mine said, ‘Tom, there are two rules of business.
1. Never run out of money.
2. Never lend money to someone who can’t pay it back.’
I thought about this -I know it’s a dangerous thing to do for a writer, especially one someone who isn’t an economist or a politician. But here are my thoughts anyway.
The EU crisis – Greece won’t pay back her debts – let her go. I was on holiday recently in Corfu – small businesses there want the drachma back. Their great country will get more tourists.
QE (Hey, let’s print more money) – what a mistake. Pension Funds will fall like stones. What a great idea – let future generations live their retirement in poverty.
Right – and sorry – but had to get that off my chest.

Now, SARCOPHAGUS, my latest novel largely set in Ukraine and featuring US agent Sean O’Neill and UK bomb disposal expert Greg Stevvens will be published before Christmas – see my website for details.
Btw my friend – my busineness guy friend – has a great formula for never running out of customers – he’s an undertaker.
