HOT OFF THE PRESSES

I have not been posting much in the last  few days because I have been totally absorbed in the creation of the 2014 volume of Pebbles from The Philosopher's Stone.  2014 was an extraordinary year for this blog, the first in which I wrote no tutorials, mini-tutorials, appreciations, and such, which do not get included in the Pebbles volumes.  As a result, this edition of Pebbles is almost twice as long as the previous annuals -- 160,000 words, which is the equivalent of a very long book.

As I read through each post, deciding whether to include it, I was rather surprised to see how much of what I wrote dealt in one way or another with economics.  The pick of the litter, I would think, is the 9000 word review of Thomas Piketty's CAPITAL in the Twenty-first Century, but the volume also contains my extended colloquy with Professors Kliman and Freeman and a great deal more about Marx and Neo-Classical economics.

Despite the focus on economics, the posts exhibit a very broad range of interests, including literature and culture, microbiology, archeology, and of course politics.

The volume has been up-loaded to box.net, accessible as always via the link at the top of this page.  Enjoy.
