Happy New Year 2021!


 - by New Deal democrat

Wishing all of my readers a happy, healthy, and better 2021!

I started writing online 17 years ago, and have been here over a decade. This past year was easily the worst of all of them, and at least tied with 1968 if not worse for the worst year historically of my entire life.

The pandemic upended everything, so this year for the first time in a long time there’s no point in taking a look back to see how the year-ago economic forecast panned out, and only limited value in a new forecast even now, although I agree with Paul Krugman that once the pandemic has been brought under control, the economy looks likely to spring back strongly.

In the meantime, here is one last chuckle about 2020, The Year From Hell - in this ad from, literally!
