Post list

This is a list of the posts in my blog. You will find captions and the begin of the body text. Besides an introduction, a post on women and one on life, the universe and everything, there are two larger sections, finance and Marxism.
This blog is more or less finished. I am still tinkering around a bit, mostly just cosmetic enhancements.

To me, making this blog has been a pretty big undertaking. I hope you like it but no matter how, I'll be glad to hear what you think. You can reach me on andersfloderus@outlook.com.
