On Monday, April 2, I will leave the Heritage Foundation to enter federal government service. Accordingly, today I am signing off as a regular contributor to Truth on the Market. First and foremost, I owe a great debt of gratitude to Geoff Manne, who was kind enough to afford me access to TOTM. Geoff’s outstanding leadership has made TOTM the leading blog site bringing to bear sound law and economics insights on antitrust and related regulatory topics. I was also privileged to have the opportunity to work on an article with TOTM stalwart Thom Lambert, whose concise book How To Regulate is by far the best general resource on sound regulatory principles (it should sit on the desk of the head of every regulatory agency). I have also greatly benefited from the always insightful analyses of fellow TOTM bloggers Allen Gibby, Eric Fruits, Joanna Shepherd, Kristian Stout, Mike Sykuta, and Neil Turkewitz. Thanks to all! I look forward to continuing to seek enlightenment at truthonthemarket.com.
You’re a gift to antitrust scholarship, Alden, and the federal government is lucky to have you back!
