For the record

Posted on

For the record, I am not a guru, even if the Times says I am.

Nor am I the creator of Corbynomics, even if the Times also says that, although I am undoubtedly responsible for some parts of it that have caught public attention.

And I am grateful to Jeremy Corbyn for the use he has made of those ideas. But I am not a formal member of his team.

I should add in that case that I  am also grateful to Chris Leslie for creating the term Corbynomics and for shooting it to prominence this week, even if I suspect he's about as annoyed at his own doing so as Liam Byrne was about 'that' joke.

A week ago I did not know the term.

A week is a long time in economics.
