Three Year Anniversary!

Today marks the three-year anniversary of Middle Class Political Economist. It's hard to believe I've been at this for three years!

According to Blogger, I've had over 480,000 page views in that time. I want to thank everyone for reading, commenting, and emailing me. I owe a debt of gratitude to all those who have helped promote my blog, including Marty Pflugrath at BartCop Entertainment, Mark Thoma, Brad DeLong, Laffy at The Political Carnival, the folks behind Mike's Blog Roundup at Crooks & Liars, Mike the Mad Biologist, Lynn Parramore at AlterNet, and Dan Crawford at Angry Bear. Many of my posts appear at Angry Bear and Daily Kos as well as here. My wife, Mary Hildebrand, comes up with some of the ideas for my articles and is a wonderful sounding board who is always there for me. None of them, of course, are responsible for my errors. My apologies to anyone I have left out.

My goal for the next year is to post on a more regular schedule. Look for Monday and Friday as my regular posting days. Naturally, posts in between are possible whenever warranted.

Thanks once again, everyone! I look forward to your suggestions and criticisms in the Comments section or via email to


  1. Happy Birthday if that's your theory. I know some Austrians that dispute your math.
