Busy, Busy

January was a killer month for me — three trips, the beginning of a quarter in which I’m teaching two classes, and the unfortunate concatenation of these events with annual doctor’s appointments.

I am teaching two classes from which I always learn a great deal — Environmental Economics and History of Economic Thought. Not many people can teach history of thought, but I love teaching it because it’s incredibly intellectually gratifying to see the progression of economic methodology, and to get a chance to read primary sources. I largely teach the class from primary sources.

We’ve just had our midterms here, so now hopefully things will slow down a little for me (in at least one of my two jobs!), and I’ll have time to post more. I’ve got a backlog of technology items on which I’d like to comment, so that’s coming.
