In case you care...
- Ryoo and Rosen. 2004. "The Engineering Labor Market", Journal of Political Economy - boning up on the literature for the NBER chapter on the engineering labor force. It's a good read.
- Volume One of Joseph Dorfman's The Economic Mind in American Civilization (1966). I'm maybe a third of the way through - got held up by this article revision and a proposal at work (which has turned into a proposal at home in evenings and in the morning). I'm coming into the late colonial period. Just worked through some fascinating experiments with paper money in New England. Highly, highly recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in American history and economics. It reads like a history book - it's not simply a history of thought (although it is that).
- H.P. Lovecraft, "The Shadow Out of Time". Re-reading this with a new appreciation. Since the last time I read it, I got S.T. Joshi's "original text", which was recently discovered and edited. Apparently Lovecraft wrote it up and had a friend type it up for him to submit. There were discrepancies between this original version and the published version.
- My own paper on the 1920-21 depression as well as rereading what Powell (2009), Woods (2009), and Murphy (2009) wrote on it. I'll hopefully get a chance to revise this this weekend and send it back in - very exciting stuff.
