So it was desk rejection from the Economics e-journal for the preprint. Probably more of those to be expected given I'm not officially an economist by degree ... but I am a member of the AEA -- doesn't that count? It probably would have gone to my head (in a bad way) had it made it through peer review without a hitch.
It's on the arXiv and also apparently at EconPapers for those that are interested (and/or want to spread it around ... ):
I am somewhat partial to Igor Carron's idea of a public peer review process ... as I mentioned in my first blog post:
Instead of trying (and probably failing) to publish [information transfer model of supply and demand] as a paper, I was inspired by Igor Carron to just think out loud with a blog. This blog will be focused on determining if the framework established here is good for anything or just an interesting toy model. Or if it is completely wrong!
