My Hope College colleague John Lunn has a very interesting blog that is worth checking out. John Lunn's Basically Economics Blog keeps its focus mainly on the current economic situation and the road to recovery. John--together with our delightful colleague from the Hope accounting faculty, Marty LaBarge--is also working on a book related to recent events.
John earned his doctorate in economics at UCLA, and walked away from a tenured post at Louisiana State to join Hope's economics group. John made that move several years prior to my arrival at Hope, and I am thankful to count him among my dear Hope College friends and colleagues.
