Welcome to my blog

So I've started a blog!

It's about environmental and economic issues. I've called it Oikos. Both the words ecology and economics come from the Greek word oikos, meaning “home” or “a place to live.”

Ecology literally means understanding home and economics means taking care of home. Their common roots reminds me how interconnected they are, even though they seem to have become regarded as opposites.

The aim of this blog is to discuss environmental and economic issues in a way that’s interesting and accessible to people who are not economists nor ecologists.

I'll try to post a couple of entries a week.

Let me know if you've got any comments. Are the dots annoying?

I like the polka dots.

Go the dots ... very retro!

I am also pro dot, but reserve my right to change my mind.

I like the dots, but unfortunately they are a bit "busy" and distrcting when reading. Sorry! ....Maybe if you just use them as a graphic element rather than to cover the whole page?
