Dear Roger,

May I use your story of one thousand pounds in my "sophisticated"
discussions on prediction in finance, financial security, econophysics, financial stability etc.

May I also send it to some of my fellow colleagues economists and finance
specialists?

I like very much this story. All copyright will be with you. I only do not
know how to transfer the "royalties".

Perhaps some (filled) cans of Tenennts Lager, or other brand you prefer,
at the earliest possible meeting?

BTW, we have some good beers in Poland as well.

Have a pleasant weekend.

Best regards, Czeslaw Mesjasz
