Not bad.

A first, a second, a third, and I\’m a contributor to other blogs which also garnered a couple of firsts and a second.

All without asking you to vote!

However, I think we might be taking the English admiration of amateurs a little too far when the best economics blog is written by someone who is not an economist….

    Tim adds: Toughie, I agree. Instinctively I’m for free movement of labour: but am willing to concede that restrictions to control surges might be needed.
    Woo, how political is that as an answer. For of course, just like trade restrictions, temporary restrictions have a habit of becoming permanent.

    Seriously? Surges, limited restrictions, they’re fine, just as they are with trade. It’s when “temporary” becomes “that’s the way things are” that we have a problem.

    OK, so I wouldn’t have.

    But you are still absolutely, a bugger.

  3. You may or may not be an economist, but you do have a way of explaining things which makes them available to complete non-economists like me. Thus you are of greater use to me than they are.

    Well done on a well-deserved award !
