Noahpinion becoming Not Quite Noahpinion for Fall 2013



Due to a large build-up of work, I'm taking a break from blogging for this Fall semester. But instead of simply letting Noahpinion gather dust, I'm turning the blog over to a team of young rising stars. Starting 8/24/2013 and ending 12/6/2013, Noahpinion will become Not Quite Noahpinion, and will feature the following awesome brilliant talented bloggers:


Carola Binder

"The Fearless Leader"



Carola Binder is a PhD candidate in economics at UC Berkeley. Her interests include economic expectations formation, economic history, monetary policy, and the Eurozone.


John Aziz

"The Troll Slayer"



John Aziz is an Associate Editor at Pieria and a freelance economics writer. His interests include monetary policy, finance, techno-optimism, trolling, and funny pictures of animals. He is the only person in the universe to have contributed guest blogs to both Zero Hedge and Noahpinion.


Yichuan Wang

"The Wunderkind"



Yichuan Wang is an undergraduate economics and mathematics student at the University of Michigan. His interests include data visualization, monetary policy, and the Chinese economy. He frequently does research with Miles Kimball, and also writes articles for Quartz.


Josiah Neely

"The Professional"



"By day I am a policy analyst at the Texas Public Policy Foundation in Austin, Texas. In my spare time I plot world domination (doesn't everyone?)."


Jeremie Cohen-Setton

"The Dark Horse"


Jeremie Cohen-Setton (@JCSBruegel) is a PhD candidate in economics at UC Berkeley and an Affiliate Fellow at Bruegel. He specializes in Macroeconomic Policies and Macroeconomic History and worked previously as an economist at HM Treasury and at Goldman Sachs. Jeremie blogs at ecbwatchers.org and is the main author of the blogs review at bruegel.org.


Peter Dorman

"The Guru"



Peter Dorman teaches economics and other things at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, works as a consultant on environmental, health and development issues, and hikes whenever the rain lets up. His introductory textbooks, micro and macro, will be published early next year by Springer.


Guan Yang

"NOT a Teen Golfer"



Guan Yang is a graduate student living in New York. Before that, he grew up in Denmark, where he, among other things, wrote mass email marketing software and calculated option adjusted spreads for mortgage backed bonds (in the 40-100 bps range). He is interested in everything except most sports.




They will be joined in October by Peter Dorman of EconoSpeak.

So keep reading Not Quite Noahpinion! In the meantime, if you absolutely need my witty commentary, you can follow me on Twitter at @noahpinion. And of course I'll see y'all after the semester is done.

  2. Ah, so I guess one use of your time is not as good as any. Therefore, one use of your dollar is not as good as any? Therefore, one use of your tax dollar is not as good as any? Therefore, tax choice.

    Keep them econobloggers trollin'
    Trollhide!

    Gold and guns and silver
    They're good forever
    Wishin' my FAL was by my side.
    My Black-Scholes calculatin'
    My true put will be waitin',
    Be waitin' at the end of the Dow's ride.
    Trollhide!

    2. You forgot the second verse ...

      Don't try to understand them,
      Just moderate and ban them,
      Soon all their nonsense will subside,
      Socialist calculatin',
      Is all they've been debatin',
      Even where it cannot be applied,
      Trollhide!

    God, what a mess
    On the ladder of success
    Where you take one step
    And miss the whole first rung

    Dreams unfulfilled
    Graduate unskilled
    It beats pickin' cotton
    And waitin' to be forgotten

    We are the sons of no one
    Bastards of young
    We are the sons of no one
    Bastards of young
    The daughters and the sons

    Clean your baby womb
    Trash that baby boom
    Elvis in the ground
    There ain't no beer tonight

    Income tax deduction
    What a hell of a function
    It beats pickin' cotton
    And waitin' to be forgotten

    We are the sons of no one
    Bastards of young
    We are the sons of no one
    Bastards of young
    The daughters and the sons

    Unwillingness
    To claim us
    Ya got no word
    To name us

    The ones who love us best
    Are the ones we'll lay to rest
    And visit their graves
    On holidays at best

    The ones who love us least
    Are the ones we'll die to please
    If it's any consolation
    I don't begin to understand them

    We are the sons of no one
    Bastards of young
    We are the sons of no one
    Bastards of young
    The daughters and the sons
    Young, young, young
    Take it, it's yours

  12. But didn't you say that blogging only took you twenty minutes a day or something? Anyway, best wishes.

    My God, this makes me nervous. I didn't think graduate students had time to eat, let along blog. Yes, I know you (apparently) got away with it, Noah. But are you sure you're not corrupting the youth? Remember what happened to Socrates.

  17. FYI, the gentlemen in the picture would be blocking a bike lane if they were in that spot today.

    No, I don't have a point, but I recognized the location.
