After sitting on this website for 3 months (+/-) , I’ve decided to follow the same principle I set for myself at Place du Luxembourg: Try to post at least once a week.
The tone will be much more relaxed here than on that website. I’m basically going to use this website as a repository of general thoughts that are not particularly relevant to that other website. My idea was transfer the clutter onto this website. Moreover, I’ve also come to realise that I’m stocking up more and more matlab files as I move on to more sophisticated and detailed analysis, which I figure I can put here.
I’m going to use the other website to continue to comment on Europe and this one for everything else, including my PhD research, any tangential quantitative analysis I may do and some thought that might occur to me while I’m doing whatever activity I’m paid to do (these days it’s writing research Briefs for the United Nations University’s World Institute for Development and Economic Research UNU WIDER and teaching seminars on introduction to economic analysis and international economics at the School of Oriental and African Studies).
So there you go! Now you (and I) know what this is all about and I’ve finally posted something here.
