I’ve found that I don’t learn much reading – I prefer to write things in order to learn them. I don’t know what it is, when I’m reading I just stop paying attention. My favourite way to learn things is for someone to say it at me – but this isn’t always practical.
As a result, there will be occasional posts where I am arbitrarily writing about a chapter in a text book. I’ll be starting with a refresher on the basic New Keynesian model, and then moving through books from there.
I will label posts that are of this nature so that you can skip them – they won’t have anything really in them but my run down of what I think is in a chapter I’ve just read. I’m only putting them up here, so I can go back to them later – if I didn’t save my notes here I would probably lose them.
