New Year, New Blog

Dear Reader:

Over the course of the coming days, weeks, and months (years, even), I hope to offer through this blog insight into economics to a general-interest audience. That mission will take a variety of forms. First, I will mainly discuss economic news. Second, I will discuss in depth economic policy measures, both those in effect and those under consideration. Third, I will keep you up-to-date on developments in the academic side of economics, such as emerging debates and trail-breaking research. Lastly, from time to time, I will post non-economic items which are of personal interest. A particular note about the level of expertise required to understand the blog: economics seems to have a particular disposition towards dryness and jargon. The former will be dutifully avoided; the latter will be explained and introduced when helpful. I hope that my particular background in economics -- currently, I am a student at Phillips Exeter Academy who will attend Princeton University next year -- will guide me in this mission.

...And off we go! Expect the first post tomorrow at noon. Please note that this blog is still under construction, technologically speaking.
