Hi there folks. I’ve got an important announcement to make. I’ve been offered, and have accepted, an exciting new job opportunity with Slate where I’ll be blogging and column-writing (columnizing?) about economics, business, and economic policy as the latest incarnation of Moneybox. For regular readers — and especially people who’ve been with me through earlier changes of URL — it shouldn’t be too much of a wild disruption, though the content of the blog is going to become more focused on the Moneybox brief, which I think you’ll see is the general direction I’ve been heading in for a while now anyway.
My current job with CAP and ThinkProgress is, I believe, the longest I’ve held a job, and it’s been a tremendous place to work, but I thought this was a great opportunity for me to pursue more of my current interests and I couldn’t say no. It’ll be sad to say goodbye to my current coworkers, who are awesome, but I’m also really looking forward to working alongside a great team at Slate, to owning a great beat, and to taking on some new challenges.
The blog will continue as is through Friday, Nov. 18, which will be my last day with ThinkProgress, and then on Monday the 21st, I’ll be working at Slate. I really want to thank everyone I’ve been working with these past few years, and of course everyone who’s been reading. I hope everyone will check out the new material starting in 10 days or so.
