  1. Greg,

    I’ve been a fan of your work for a long time. Well, basically since my monetary theory and policy class. I used and article you’d written in the Wall Street Journal to “confuse” my professor. (I thought I was so smart…thanks to you!)

    Either way, the point of this email is to ask you start publishing updates on twitter. It’s a great way for your young fans to follow you. I’d love to hear about your thoughts in 140 characters or less, or, if more lengthy I’d love to get a link. Pictures are welcome as well.

    Think about it.

    If you’re already there. I searched, but couldn’t find you.

    A big fan!

  3. Greg: Ditto to the comment above. I saw you on CSPAN this week and was reminded again of what a great economics journalist you are. I also appreciated your level-headed responses to some of the more outrageous callers! Would love to follow you on twitter too.
    Another big fan!

  5. Greg – Watched you on The Washington Journal this morning. It was a relief to hear someone talking about economics without trying to sell a political ideology. I just have one question. Doesn’t a small rate of inflation provide an incentive to increase production? If so, isn’t it a sign of a healthy economy?
