It is a pleasure to introduce Eric Crampton as our guest blogger this week at Pileus. Eric is an economist at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. He is currently working on projects relating to voter knowledge, electoral stock markets, alcohol regulatory policy and paternalism. He hails originally from Canada but earned his doctorate at George Mason University. He usually blogs at Offsetting Behaviour.
Pileus veterans may remember that Eric’s first attempt to guest blog here was interrupted by the 2011 New Zealand earthquake. We hope that nothing like that occurs this time. Welcome Eric! Looking forward to your always interesting thoughts.
