The Stakes of the Helicopter Money Debate: A Primer
Musings on the Science of "Scaling"

Welcome from the Blum Center Chief Economist

Brad delong Google Search


The Blum Center for Developing Economies has never had a chief economist before. I have never been a chief economist before. It is thus a brand new job in two senses.

The upside is that I thus get to define what the job is. And let me begin to do so by asking you:

What do you think I should make the job of Blum Center Chief Economist be?

I am, at the moment, engaged in two major tasks with looming deadlines that have to do with the work of the Blum Center:

  • Co-editing a book, After Piketty, on how economists' research agendas should shift in the aftermath of Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

  • Giving a lecture (on October 17, 2016) at Brown University on "Inequality", as part of their Janus Forum.

Sincerely yours,

Brad DeLong
