Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Bleggers can't be choosers, apparently
On this day of Americans giving thanks for things, a few notes updating on the occasions when I have asked you, my loyal readers, for help.
The quote "I used to think that there was no place on earth like Angola …" is from Kurt Maier's Angola: Promises and Lies quoted in "Civil War is Not A Stupid Thing" by Christopher Cramer. I found my copy of the book in an old briefcase and this must have been where I'd read the quote as it is definitely nowhere on the web.
My copy of "The Economics Of Input/Output Analysis" by Thijs ten Raa remains at large; I have ended up buying a replacement.
Nobody lifted a finger on the Home Office Research Thursday Project, although shortly after I wrote that, they did bow to pressure and introduce a sensible release schedule.
My constant requests for someone to finish that Freakonomics review for me were all apparently taken as jokes. I reiterate, they weren't. Come on readers, the sequel is apparently nearly finished!
Thanks for fucking nothing, folks.
Update: on the other hand, I suppose you did me proud in holding up our contribution to the Iraqi employees campaign, so thanks very much for that.
