A note to Econlog readers:

You may notice that we have a new format today.  This is part of a long planned changeover in our platform. 

There are a number of new features, but the one I most look forward to is the wider dimensions.  Under the old format, pictures and graphs were limited to a maximum of 420 pixels wide, and this often made it hard to see complex graphs. There were a few posts I had to move to MoneyIllusion simply because it had a wider format.  Those will now go to Econlog.

There are other important new features as well.  I expect that readers will be most excited by the fact that the whole new site is mobile responsive!

There will also be lots more opportunities to explore related content from other sections of the site. 

ALL content will continue to be archived, and it should be easier than ever to find and explore all archives.
