Brian Goldstein, Executive Director of the Boone County Democrats (and a personal friend of mine), recently asked me if I was interested in posting commentary to the Boone County Democrat blog, here. I don’t think this will result in me posting here less (actually, I hope to increase the quality and amount I write here substantially). I hope to stick to commentary from an economic or analytical framework and hope to not get drawn into the partisan flame-wars that unfortunately characterize our political discourse (though I feel I’ve been as guilty as any).
Here is my first post for the Boone County Democrats; it provides a partial analysis of Representative Mary Still’s payday reform bill. I have written on the subject earlier this year when Rep. Still held a forum in Columbia to discuss the issue, here.
