We've got five years, what a surprise

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes 
We've got five years, what a surprise 
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot 
We've got five years, that's all we've got
Five Years, David Bowie

The blog is five years old today. It started as essentially an online working paper with an informal abstract (and addendum).  The paper I mention never saw the light of day in that form, but morphed into this paper.

In the past year, I wrote both an Evonomics article as well as a book. The two most viewed blog posts of the past year were related to the former (essentially a draft version of the Evonomics article along with a continuously updated list of presentations and papers).

Thank you to everyone for reading in whatever form!


  1. congrats on the pretty remarkable body of work this represents by now!

    1. Thanks. I think I estimated it at nearly a million words a couple years ago when I hit 1000 posts (about 10 doctoral theses in physics). I'd now estimate 1.2 million assuming the same average word count.


Comments are welcome. Please see the Moderation and comment policy.

Also, try to avoid the use of dollar signs as they interfere with my setup of mathjax. I left it set up that way because I think this is funny for an economics blog. You can use € or £ instead.
