Some big news: felixsalmon.com has, overnight, become a finance and economics
blog. If you haven’t been here before, welcome – and if you’re a regular
reader, I promise
I Stefan will
set up a page very soon which excludes the finance and economics stuff.
For the past few months, I’ve had a blog at rgemonitor.com
called Economonitor – but I’m sad to say that Economonitor died on Friday,
February 2. I had a lot of fun writing it, however, so I’m going to continue
along the same lines here at felixsalmon.com.
There will be some differences, of course – for one thing, I won’t be
ending almost every post with a deep link into the RGE Monitor site. I’ll also
be writing occasionally about the stuff which I always used to write
occasionally about at felixsalmon.com, on subjects like urban design and orchestral
music. As for other changes, well, I’d like to ask your help and advice on that
front. Is there anything about Economonitor that you particularly liked or disliked?
Is there anything I didn’t do there which I should do here?
Specifically, I’d like to get the tone right. Was there too much snark, or
not enough, at Economonitor? Was there too much criticism of financial journalism?
Did you like the long, arcane posts on CPDOs
reinstatement clause – or were they far too recondite for a general
audience? Let me know in the comments here, or via email.
Thanks, and thanks for reading!
