I'm very glad to be here on the Dish, and thanks to Andrew for the opportunity. I'll be guest blogging for the week, at which point I'm decamping for Argentina. Jokes about hiking the Appalachian Trail are more than welcome.

I write mostly about economics and public policy, mostly from a vaguely lefty perspective. My recent interests have been national tax policy, climate change legislation and interviewing the few remaining economists who do not yet have their own blogs. My full-time blog is here. Since the Dish does not have comments, I should add that am very much amenable to being nagged and criticized by email (conorjclarke [at] gmail [dot] com) and Twitter (conorjclarke). Thanks for reading.
