I have nothing against Fairbanks, mind you, and the balmy 20-degree weather was the least of my problems. The problem was that I was involved in three days of faculty union contract negotiations. Not much fun, even on a good day.

Economics has its creepy moments

Writing a biweekly newspaper column may be a way to meet people, but it's not always a way to make friends - especially when the topic is the dismal science of economics.
