Dominic Frisby

Comedian, author and accidental financial bod

Dominic Frisby is a comedian from London.

But his first book, Life After The State, has nothing to do with comedy. It is a deadly serious dismantling of the way societies are run in the west, outlining the damage governments unknowingly do to their people, with simple suggestions about how things can be vastly improved.

Dominic writes an investment column for MoneyWeek and has written and produced numerous short films and videos, including the viral hit 'Debt Bomb'. His script-writing ranges from episodes of the kids' show 'Roary the Racing Car' to the feature documentary 'The Four Horsemen', about the global financial crisis. He is a frequent speaker on gold and money on television, radio and at conferences - as well as after-dinner.

Frisby is also a comedian and actor, described as 'viciously funny and inventive' by the Guardian; 'masterful' by the Evening Standard; and 'great comedy talent' by

Day-to-day he is found trotting about the sound studios of London, voicing everything from BBC nature documentaries to zombies in Hollywood blockbusters.

He has also worked as a TV presenter, a boxing-ring announcer, a florist, a removal man, an extremely camp theatrical agent's PA, a sports commentator and a busker.

The Way We Help People Does Not Help People

The highest form of charity, argued the 12th-century Jewish philosopher Maimonides, is when the help given enables the receiver to become self- sufficient. But our systems of state charity - aka welfare - have too frequently had the opposite effect: they have actually <em>created </em>dependency. It is time to re-think the way we help people.

You Don't Need a Government to Provide Quality Education

Thanks to the Industrial Revolution and the increased productivity it made possible, incomes began rising from the turn of the 19th century. As incomes rose, parents could afford increasing amounts of education for their children. The vigorous growth in schooling was, simply, a response to rising incomes - which is natural and normal.

Mind The Gap

Most of us now enjoy luxuries that would have been unheard of a hundred years ago - running water, electricity, computers, phones, cheap food and clothing. Yet, despite all this, there is discontent. People are angry.
