But I realize the market for ahead of the curve analysis is limited. Potential employers either think you are crazy or too smart to be able to do anything with you. (Once you are proven right, it is usually both) So I am refocusing my energies on my academic career. It recently revised a resubmitted a technical paper on how oil price volatility impacts industrial production indices in the US. (If published this will be my fifth publication) I have a full teaching load for the next school year and one more paper to go to finish my doctorate. As a result, I will be spending less time on these pages.
Happy Birthday to the ground!
