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.
The questions poured in. Richards' answers, meanwhile, require some time to digest. So Thursday we're unveiling a new miniseries here on Making Sen$e: Carl and Paul on Personal Finance, complete with Carl's famous hand-drawn learning aids.
Please submit questions for future installments in the comments below.
