I am a writer, a blogger, and an associate professor at the University of Connecticut School.

My main blog on economics, law, and public policy is The Baseline Scenario, which I share with Simon Johnson. You can follow The Baseline Scenario via emailRSS, or Facebook. You can see some of my favorite blog posts and articles on the Highlights page. I also write an online column for The Atlantic. The blog on this site is for more personal observations about the world. Subscription links for this blog are at the right.

I now try to aggregate all of the things I write (Baseline Scenario, The Atlantic, here, elsewhere) in my personal Twitter feed.

My latest book is White House Burning: The Founding Fathers, Our National Debt, and Why It Matters To You (Pantheon, 2012), co-authored with Simon.

Simon and I also wrote 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown (Pantheon, 2010).
