The email came the day I wrote a post called "Another rant about the Globe and Mail's coverage of economics."
It was an offer "that I hope you can't refuse" - to participate in the Globe and Mail's new feature Economy Lab.
Another day I might have said no, but I could hardly rant about the Globe and Mail's coverage, and then turn down an opportunity to try to improve it.
Stephen Gordon is also participating, and the inaugural post is by WCI regular Kevin Milligan, on hikes to Employment Insurance premiums. (Professor Milligan, only one unanswered question: how do you do so much, so well?)
Since we each contribute just one Economy Lab column every two weeks, we will still have time to keep posting here.
And here's the question: which will have more influence, our WCI posts, or the Globe and Mail columns?
