A Special Shout Out to EPJ Commenters

As I mentioned in a twitter post yesterday, I was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal's Kelly Evans for a story she is doing on econ blogs. I have no idea what she will put in her story, but at one point she asked me why I started the blog, I gave her a number of reasons including that it provides a way to be officially on record with my forecasts, and also a place to showcase my views without having to worry about an editor killing a story.

I then told her there is also an unexpected benefit that I didn't realize would occur when I first started blogging, i.e., the comments left at this blog, and in private emails sent to me as a result of the blog, are overwhelmingly first class, intelligent comments that I learn a lot from. So commenters, give yourselves a quick round of applause and keep the comments coming

  1. Funny, I was wondering whether to send this on. Given your encouragement, here it is:

    "Don't Monetize the Debt"

    This is right up your alley. I look forward to any comments you choose to make.
