It's an interesting project - it's intended as a reference book for high school and undergrad students. What's neat is that they're covering the scope of American populism - focusing on the 1890s, certainly, but even bringing it up through the present day and the Tea Party, etc. (hence the real estate boom entry). So in the entries I have done, I tried to reflect that - I talked about uses of the Quantity Theory by populists in the older debates, and by anti-Fed groups today, etc.
I'm also going to try to turn my DARPA RFI on the 100 year starship into a short article for The Space Review and a longer essay for The New Atlantis. I've got a base of text to work with, and a lot of other material - so I might as well.
I'm about to submit an article for work to the journal Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis. The article is on the differential impact of a high school diploma on employment in young adulthood for blacks and whites. That's co-authored with Marla McDaniel, who I think I've mentioned on here before.
The NBER conference is in September, so that chapter is going to be finished up soon. It's been well on its way for a while now - just need to finish it off. That's on supply trends in the engineering labor market over the last thirty years.
I'm going to keep poking around this Richard Posner question I mentioned earlier to see if it's worth thinking about more (I have about 1,000 words written on that right now), but that should all bring me through the fall... then we'll see what my time looks like for other work.
Any other young scholars got interesting work to share?
