This is My 500th Post!

Or so says Blogger. It seems like not so long ago that I started this whole endeavor. It has changed from what I thought I would be doing at the outset, but not by much. I am not sure I am accomplishing part of what I had hoped to do: get students engaged with economics outside of the classroom, but I am enjoying writing it and making connections with folks I would never have otherwise.

So, thanks for reading my blog.

I am not an economist, nor a student, but yours has quickly become one of my favorite blogs. In part it's smart and often reassuring commentary on what has been a tremendously frightening crisis. In part it's the Oregonian perspective on a global phenomenon. Mostly, though, it's the beer.

Congratulations on post 500! I am a student in the Master of Public Policy program and have taken several Econ classes here at OSU, although unfortunately not one of yours. I have enjoyed them all and have appreciated reading your blog to see an economist's take on current events in Oregon.
