It's Been A While

I took a break from blogging after the election because I had a ton of stuff going on. I have had a number of works that are in the process of being published and some papers I have been working on with my Ph.D. students.

The whole bailout mess has kept me busy also.

I am going to try to work my way back into a regular blogging routine because things are calming down a bit, but with the holidays it will likely be tough.

Two thoughts:

1. We need to kill all these bailouts and let the market sort through the mess. The government is wasting our money and our children's money propping up failing private firms.

2. The Chicago Bears need to win out and hope the Vikings stumble in their final two games. Not likely, but hopefully on Monday night when the Bears play the Packers there will still be a chance at the playoffs.

I was wondering where you've been !

We agree completely on the bailout mania. It is a disgusting display of waste and awarding failure.

Good luck to your bears tonight.

Merry Christmas to you and yours !
