I’m in Washington, D.C. this morning, kicking off the new year in a new job. There are some rules about blogging (and so forth) and, while it is permitted, I think it’s best for me to hand over the reins to my friend and colleague, William K. Black so that I can give my full attention to the tasks ahead. I appreciate Bill’s willingness to take over as Editor-in-Chief of NEP.
Some of you have wondered whether I’ve left UMKC. I haven’t. I’ve simply taken a leave of absence in order to accept a position as Chief Economist on the Senate Budget Committee (minority side). I’ll be working closely with Senate budget staff, under the direction of ranking member Sen. Sanders (I-VT). And, of course, I’ll be reading NEP.
