My "political compass"

Unlike bmili, I try to keep the politics here brief. I theorize that being overly political does not bring liquidity to TS; but the understanding public policies and the politicians who influence them can lead to more advocacy of the greater good (including more predictive information markets).

But following the lead of Steve Bainbridge, I figured it would probably be good to let anyone curious where I stand on this (scales are from -10 to +10):

Economic Left/Right: 4.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.59

which means that I am slightly more libertarian and slightly more right-leaning of the compass center (almost exactly between Angela Merkel and Milton Friedman, if you look at this analysis).
