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 occasionally, 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.
I began reporting on this trend back around 1990, when the PBS NewsHour was still The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, and the red line had yet to achieve liftoff. It's astonishing to see what's happened since. Looking ahead another 20 years while suspending any judgment, I wonder: Does the trend really know no bounds?
