Before I abandon ship, I wanted to let readers know about a new project of mine. This week, I will be starting a new personal blog about economic inequality. It’s called Inequality Matters, and you can find it here. As my blurb for the blog says, I will be “exploring the causes and consequences of economic inequality.” I will mainly focus on the economics, but will also look at how economic inequality plays itself out in our political system, in pop culture, and in other arenas.

I have not posted yet, but I will get some posts up this week — perhaps as early as tomorrow. I wanted to start last week but it took me longer than anticipated to get the site up and working.

Anyway, if you enjoy my work — or even if you don’t, but you just enjoy arguing with me — be sure to visit the new blog. It’s a purely personal project. I plan to continue doing weekend blogging here for as long as the Monthly will have me.

Thanks as always for reading, for your thoughtful comments, and for your time. Have a great week!
