Congratulations! You are currently reading the 1st of what will hopefully be several Leightonomics blog postings. Although it is true that this blog will largely be dedicated to economics (hence the “nomics” portion of the blog name), I intend to talk about all sorts of issues plaguing the world and to either mention or propose solutions to these issues. I am especially interested in the public-policy realm, so don’t be surprised to find me posting about governmental budgets, taxes, health care, education, finance and, of course, macroeconomics.
Well, that’s about as much as I’m willing to dedicate to the blog’s intro. Let’s get started!
