In the fall of 2007, when the U.S. economy first seemed in peril, I began answering reader queries here on the Business Desk. I still do so, but this page has expanded to include posts from eminent economists, "far-flung correspondents," and a variety of voices that have intriguing and/or useful things to say about economics, broadly defined. Please feel encouraged to respond to any and all of them.
Find More of Paul's Thoughts on Twitter and His New Online Article.
It's the weekend again and with the NewsHour dark, there's no chance to answer questions. So I thought I'd post a couple of things that might interest you. I'm in San Francisco for the annual meeting of economists for a story slated to run next week in which the pros answer the question: "Why didn't you WARN us?"
I have begun posting their insights and bon mots on Twitter @paulsolman, my handle there. Also, if you really need a fix of Deep Thoughts By Me, I've just published a piece in a journal few, if any of you, I expect, subscribe to or have even heard of: The Journal of Economic Education.
You can buy a copy of the article at Heldref Publicans or just google "Journal of Economic Education." As NewsHour viewers (and especially if you're a teacher), you might find my piece of some interest.
Have an anxiety-free weekend and, for that matter, 2009.
