Radio Appearance

I was on the radio yesterday on the "On the Mark" program yesterday.  Link is here.  I come on at about the 28 minute mark.

Note - the link is good for one week, but I'll try to download the episode so it's more permanent.

Recent news ...

Work and life have both been very busy this past month - some quick updates

* I was recently honored with the John C. Lectureship.  (Link)

* I attended two conferences.  One on teaching was really exciting, and I'm going to really work on enhancing my skills as a teacher.  I learned a lot and am excited to apply this in the classroom.

* I am working my way through a big stack of books.  I'm teaching political economic thought again in the spring, and am looking at updating the reading list.  In the next few days I'll post on the recent books I've read, what I'm reading, and what's in the queue.

* I have lots of exciting projects right now.  Similar to how coroners will say business is good during the plague, the things going on in the world today keeps economists busy.
