In 2014 Sam and Kay issued a paper entitled “Review of the Nobel Prize Economics 2014” the Economics prize for 2014 having been given to Professor Jean Tirole for his work entitled “The science of taming powerful firms”. The review effected a comparison of the comments by the Nobel Committee against the commercial and legal models created by us.
The review of the 2014 Economics prize resulted in the formation of a new concept to describe the process by which Governments should seek to find an ethical and practical distribution of the commercial activity through use of the law to end poverty and control globalisation. The new concept is “Commercial Dynamic Equilibrium”.
In 2015 the Nobel Prize in Economics was given to Professor Angus Deaton for his work entitled “Consumption, Great and Small” and Sam has commenced his review and comparison in order to test both our commercial and legal models and the “Commercial Dynamic Equilibrium” concept against the eminent Professor’s paper with a view to publishing comments on the 2015 winning work.
He is the founder of “The House of Branch of Gold” a private investigation unit.
