FYI; one of my resolutions for the New Year is to continue criticizing you until you realize that your so-called economics blog HAS to become just that and not a space where you take advantage of readers' time and patience to satisfy your highly inflated ego.
Thanks for stopping by; I was starting to miss you:)! And I am glad that I was not able to trick you into believing that I do not have an inflated ego by calling myself a "sore loser":)
BTW, one of MY resolutions for the New Year is to continue not to take your criticisms seriously as long as you continue not to provide any backing/substance to your critiques/claims. Especially because nobody (I hope) is putting a gun to your (or anyone else's for that matter) head to read my posts/columns:)
So I guess we'll have another year where you'll sometimes drop by and say I have an inflated ego and/or no analysis, and I will have to laugh it off.
I am saying "have to" because joking aside, I would have responded to your critiques if I knew how to. But I still don't see why you think I have an inflated ego and why even technical columns such as those on monetary policy, have, according to your "expert opinion", no analysis.
I have had very constructive critiques from friends and readers, but unfortunately not even one from you. Actually it is not that difficult: All you'd have to do would be to add a because: "You have an inflated ego because..." or "You have no analysis because..."
I have always been an over-optimistic person, so despite no logical reason for me to do so, and every indication that I should not, I am still hoping for one constructive critique from you. So why don't you make another New Year's resolution: To provide me with at least one "useful" critique this year...
Stop telling the world what you think of Atilla Yeşilada's "pretty co-host". Keep your fantasies -- in which no one except you is interested -- to yourself and concentrate on economics, for a change!.
What a bright idea for those who have plenty of time to play little games, but not enough strong economics background to produce economic analyses of high caliber.
BTW, I am profoundly impressed to learn that you have spent 10+ years in the US. WOW!.. I myself have spent some 17 years doing an MA, a Ph.D.and working as a finance professional in several European countries. But not once-- until I read your latest rambling-- did it occur to me to use it as PR material on a public website. A free and friendly advice to you: BEING MODEST IS ALWAYS BEST!
