Hi everyone. You may have noticed a flurry of activity in the blog over the last two weeks – this is because I moved two months of planned activity forward so it would be finished by the end of September.
I am going to have to leave the blog for a while in order to focus my attention on other things from today – so for the foreseeable future I will not be writing or commenting here.
However, some students at Victoria University of Wellington have stated that they are keen to set up an Economic Club at Victoria. As part of this some students are likely to put up posts here – giving the blog a fresh start with some new, more novel, voices. Once the club is set up there will likely be a post here – you don’t have to be a student to join, and I hear they are looking at setting up monthly presentations from economists on a range of topical issues.
I have had a lot of fun writing here again, and I’m sure that one day I’ll have something to say. But I like the idea that some Young (Economics) Turks will turn up to disrupt economic thinking on this site – and hopefully help us all think a bit more critically about economics ideas we’ve taken as given.
