My New Job

As of July 1, I will become the chairman of the Harvard economics department.  I will continue teaching ec 10 and revising my favorite textbooks, but I will have to cut back on my other teaching roles and various professional activities.  In particular, over the next three years, I will blog less and travel less to give talks at other venues.  I will be spending my time trying to make the world's best economics department even better.

Addendum: If you are curious, the current chairman is John Campbell.  Before John was Jim Stock.  Before Jim, Alberto Alesina.
