longandvariable blog

Here is my blog, longandvariable.

I write on monetary and fiscal policy, macroeconomics and public policy in general.

I hope it will be of interest to those following central bank and government policy, and also to students following macroeconomics courses.

The ‘long and variable’ title is a reference to Friedman’s comments about the lags between changes in monetary instruments and the goal variables they care about.  It could also be a reference to the fact that the posts are sometimes too long, and the quality variable.
