Quoracy.com is a business-related blog by David J. James. In the past it was a separate registered business but on joining Mazars Poland in early 2015 on a full-time basis, I decided to de-register the business, as of 9th February 2015. As of the end of June 2017, I am leaving Mazars and joining an international agricultural group so I will be reopening this blog as a place where I can discuss business-related topics, especially related to the sectors of food production (from agriculture and fishery through to production and packaging and retail) as well as health (from pharma and life science research through to medical business and care homes), while hobby-related topics especially related to languages and the application of the GoldList Method, which I devised, will be treated over at Huliganov.TV
