About

Hi, I’m Adnan Haider. Welcome to Lootmaar: on tech, economics and housing (bubbles). Hit subscribe for long-form pieces that are research-backed and unapologetically opinionated.

Lootmaar doesn't translate so well, the magic lost in translation. Think of it as the point where chaos meets plunder. I'd love to say that’s a comment on the depredations of late stage capitalism, but no - it’s named after my old flame, a folly of youth. Buried in my archives is a thread on why Lootmaar failed, an online marketplace a decade before the market was ready for such misadventures.

So, that’s the Lootmaar story, and its history long forgotten. I’ve revived it for nostalgia’s sake, mostly because I needed an online home for my writing.
