10. @GRhodes

Just wanted to send you a thank you letter for your post but was waiting until after I finished my term papers for the quarter. Now I have discovered that I have to make 50 posts till I can do that so just wanted to leave a short one here since I'm not sure how long it will take, considering I lurked on this board for about 10 years just reading until now. One of my schools favorite professors does come from UMass Amherst and one of his courses I am right now is conceptualized around the whole Herndon and Reinhart/Rogoff debacle.

Read a few articles off nakedcapitalism and I didn't necessarily agree with some of the ideas that i noticed on there it was still interesting to read. At the moment my macro professor suggested we look at economistview.typepad.com so I try to check out the stories there every other day plus the stuff I get off google news and here but I'm grateful for another site to view.

I feel like my university classes spend a ton of time talking about the failings of capitalism and some time on soviet style communism but I wish there were courses that looked more closely at market socialism; mainly European and Asian economies like China and Vietnam. At the moment I am planning to try take as an elective a history course on 1950 china to modern day just to get some limited economic and cultural information.
