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.)

The comment section here is largely dead. My Substack or Twitter are better places to have a conversation.

Given that this is largely a backup way to reach me, I am going to reject posts that annoy me. Please post lengthy essays elsewhere.
