  •  Thank you, actually I was planning to try and (3+ / 0-)

    link some of the discussion on poverty in the 18th and 19th centuries to discussions on the social welfare state and then criticisms of them. That is part of a longer term project. I have recruited someone to start looking at modern post-keynesian arguments to write here.

    Good to see you ministry of truth! Have you left NYC yet? Hope things are a bit better! :) Glad to know that you are still reading these diaries!

    •  I'm upstate in NY now (3+ / 0-)

      but if I start posting UpstateDem diaries I will know it's time to move again, LOL.

      keep up the good work, hon. We need to make economics simple, especially Kenyesian economics.

      If you can make Kenyesian economics simple and easy for progressives to understand you will have done a service, not only for this site, but for this generation.

      Please sign up and crosspost your diaries at the progressiveelectorate.com. I just became an admin there and will glad frontpage your work.

      Cheers

        You reminded me that I asked some friends for some easy beginner economics references for Post Keynesian economics for you and Polar Bear, and I got this suggestion:

        A New Guide to Post Keynesian Economics (1991), edited by Pressman and Holt, Routledge.

        Actually, Steve Pressman is the person I asked to come and blog here, he has worked on basic income arguments, debt, health care.

        Now I will sound like an idiot, but how does one cross-post diaries? I wanted to do it at the European Tribune http://www.eurotrib.com/ and would be honoured to post at progressiveelectorate; my age is showing ... I am flashing middle aged technologically dysfunctional person at you!

        btw, I love upstate new york, I lived in Binghamton and Oneonta for years (not just for university) and always try to visit Albany when I am in NYS (old friends live there). I hope that everything works out for you!

          crossposting simply means posting the same articles at different sites. Usually you include the links to the other sites you have posted at, but that is not necessarily part of the package.

          The point is to get the good message out there in as many places as possible. I crosspost at several sites, depending on the content and the site.

          The trick is to get a feel for a site before posting there. See if it is up your alley first, and then, blog away, just like you would here.

          I ahave yet to find another blog as cool and as big as DKos, but that is how we grow the progressive movement. It is a party, right? Well, the more the merrier, I say.

          Cheers

            hoping ... I was worried that there was some odd link that I had missed; so at least I can do that. I actually asked my husband and he said "what the hell do I know" and he is always deriding my complete lack of technological skills, so I was really worried that there was something that linked things together that I missed, that's a relief! :)

            I agree, the more the merrier and there are some things more appropriate for some sites and less so for others, like my discussion on social mobility, education and inequality in Britain probably would have gotten better reception on the eurotrib than here.
