The Switch: How solar, storage and new tech means cheap power for all
The Switch: How solar, storage and new tech means cheap power for all
by Chris Goodall
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars This book fits neatly into a series that began with ..., 23 July 2016
This book fits neatly into a series that began with the late lamented David MacKay's "Sustainanble energy - without the hot air"Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air and was followed by Allwood and Cullen's "Sustainable materials with both eyes open" Sustainable Materials - Without the Hot Air: Making Buildings, Vehicles and Products Efficiently and with Less New Material.

All three should be compulsory reading for engineers and policy-makers everywhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars TP24 refuse to replace defective bulbs, 11 Feb. 2015
I have bought about 20 LED bulbs from TP24. Two have failed so far, after about 24 months. TP24 refuse to replace them despite being sold as long lived bulbs. I shall avoid them if I can but there are few alternative sellers of suitable GU10 LED bulbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perceptive book, 5 Oct. 2008
This book asserts that whilst efficient market theory does fit trade in goods and services generally, the evidence does not support its fitting assets such as land, and shares. It argues that as a result of what the author sees as a state of denial by most economists, economic policy targets inflation or aims to maintain continuous economic growth. The author suggests, with arguments that are said to be based on the thoughts of Keynes and Minsky and seem compelling to a non-economist, that central banks should rather target asset/land price inflation.

The author is a control engineer and a financial analyst, and his arguments resonate with this reviewer who is also an engineer by origin. What would be interesting is to have reasoned comments from an open minded professonal economist.

That said the book is a good read and for the curious a very different analysis of the financial turmoil of 2008.
