If you’ve landed here via search engine, welcome! For the last six months most of my writing has been published on Substack. That’s where you’ll find:
All about Veblen goods (and Thorstein Veblen, for whom they’re named)
And lots more! Subscribe—it’s free!
I also continue to publish on Medium. Recent stories include:
The triumph of the swears: Why naughty words dominated the Word of the Year vote
And because squaw is back in the news because Fresno County (California) leaders are refusing to remove the word from a local place name, here’s a gift link to my 2021 story about the valley of the S-word.
You can read all of my Medium stories with an annual membership—just $50—that also gives you access to everything else published on Medium.
