I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Debtwatch and CfESI community. My name is David Lawson, and I will be coming on board as the Director of the Centre for Economic Stability Incorporated (CfESI) as of the 1st of February. I have been an active committee member of CfESI since its establishment in March 2010.
The key objective of this position is to free up Steve’s time so that he can focus on his research. As one of my primary functions, I will take over communications with the Debtwatch blog and CfESI website. Matters that require a research input will of course still be dealt with directly by Steve himself.
I am honoured to be here, I have no doubt that as this economic crisis drags on, Steve’s analysis and policy alternatives will become more prominent.
This is the beginning of yet another volatile and uncertain year for economies and financial markets as we venture further into the Global Financial Crisis. Let us continue in our pursuit of building a more stable economic future without any major crises.
