The two parts would be split as follows:
- Empirical and Post-Keynesian approaches to recessions.
- Interest rates and recessions (housing market and neoclassical approaches), and non-forecastability of recessions.
It is not clear that this is best split of topics, but it matches the rough order in which I have been writing (the first part is near complete).
If I follow this plan, I should be able to publish the first part by about November
2018 2019 (based on my past form). Otherwise, it would be probably at least six months later than that, unless I greatly strip down my planned coverage of neoclassical theory.
As for my programming projects, the Python platform has been "in production" for a couple of weeks now, and I am now just incrementally adding features. As for the sfc_models package, it is being tied to the platform, which makes it easier to use (but not adding new modelling features).
