A long pondered but only lately realized blog about economics, politics, evaluation, econometrics, Ann Arbor, academia, college football and whatever else comes to mind.
This Thursday is Thanksgiving, the annual holiday that commemorates the 1817 publication of David Ricardo's On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, which started the field of public finance. The holiday expresses our gratitude for the opportunity to study taxation. It is customary to feast on that day, in celebration of the absence of excise and sales taxes on food prepared at home.
