Another Pause...

Various distractions means that I will wait until the weekend until my next piece. Unless something interrupts, it will be about Scott Fullwiler's piece on "sustainable" fiscal policy. If the reader wishes, they can read ahead and be ready to pepper me with comments...

Fullwiler, Scott T. "The debt ratio and sustainable macroeconomic policy." World Economic Review 7 (2016): 12-42.

The pandemic news (and American politics...) appears to be the big story right now. One of the advantages of not pretending to be a forecaster is that I do not have to waste my readers' time with my takes on the economic effects of viruses. (Pandemics are bad, and I do not see what else I can say.)

Although I welcome people who disagree with me, please be civil.

Please note that my spam comment filter appears to dislike long "anonymous" posts.

Note: if you want to post comments from Apple devices (iPhone, iPad), you apparently need to turn off "prevent cross-site tracking" in Safari privacy settings. (The reason presumably is that another URL handles comments, and so the user session needs to be preserved when redirected to that site. I don't like this, but this is not enough to make me switch my hosting service.)
