Holy cow, I totally forgot to announce the news: I proposed to Scott Sumner that instead of a live video debate, instead we have a 3-part exchange. Each month, I will write a 2000 – 2500 word blog post challenging his views on NGDP targeting, to which he will respond with whatever length he desires. Presumably his commenters and you guys will be chiming in on our respective posts, so that by Round 2 my 2000 – 2500 word post will gain from everybody’s input.
Scott agreed, but said he couldn’t start until January. (Oh, as an added sweetener, I got Major Freedom to agree that he wouldn’t post on Scott’s blog for the entire three months of the debate. I’m not even kidding.)
I must admit I’m a bit nervous, but someone has to stand up to this guy before he takes over.
