One year ago today Corrections wrote our first post, on the Fifth of November. In the time since, we have written 268 more posts, and received approximately 5,200 unique visits for a total of 10,300 page views. These articles have ranged on topics from crime and punishment to the economics of medicine, drugs, stock markets, GDP, judge political bias, and more.
Of late, our posts have slowed, as we have shifted away from the brief articles that marked the birth of Corrections and towards more detailed, data- and simulation-intensive articles. Initially, our objective was to Correct the news sources we saw as consistently making economic mistakes in their analysis.
For the next year, we plan to offer fewer articles, less focused on an individual news article. Instead, we shall offer articles that go into more depth and explain an idea we see as one that needs Correction. One example of this might be the idea that it's questionable if unemployment insurance raises unemployment. It does. At all times.
Corrections plans to revisit this decision one year from today. As always, comments, Corrections, and suggestions are always welcomed. We would like to thank you for your readership, and hope our new format will offer our readers something new.
