Another short pause — and a forthcoming blog redesign

I will be on the road for the next few days, and do not expect to post again before Sunday.

When I come back on line -- if all goes well -- this blog should have a new look and feel.

It will be more integrated into the RGE monitor site, for one thing. For another, it should be a lot easier to search.

And it should be a lot harder for my most prolific commentators -- Party Poker, Pacific Poker, Texas Hold’em and a few others -- to post comments. I certainly hope the changes do not make it harder for others to post their comments. I have gained immensely from the lively discussion in the comments section, and want that to continue.

I look forward to your feedback on the new design.

In the meantime, I suspect you all will keep the various live discussion strands going. There is plenty to talk about -- oil and Unocal, trade deficits in the US and surpluses in China, central bank reserve accumulation and the financing of US deficits. Or if you are on the more optimistic side, rising household wealth and falling budget deficits.

I wish I had had more time this week to look into the latest budget numbers. Next week I guess.
