Early this year, I started regularly blogging for the first time in my career. It’s been a tremendous learning experience, and I’m grateful to have this forum—thank you to all who have taken the time to read and comment! I appreciate the support of everyone here at AIER, especially our President Ed Stringham for both direction and the trust to pursue it, and my editor Harry David, who makes my work better every time.
