This is me just making sure I still know how to post on this blog. Maybe I can still write more than 280 characters at a time. I see that everything here, even my bio, is out of date. And you only have to scroll down three posts to find one that subsequent experience has rendered embarrassingly wrong in its implications. And the comments sections are overrun with so much spam that a real comment would wither and die from lack of water. And I no longer look like my profile picture (in part because I never wear a tux anymore, but I think age has something to do with it too).
And I've made a career transition away from economics.
But economic times have gotten interesting again—horribly, horribly interesting. So maybe I'll have something to say here.
