An End to Spring Vacation

So, the past month or so has been interesting and all, but I’m pleased to be announcing that on Monday I’ll take up my old post at The Economist. I’ll be covering all things economic and financial at Free Exchange, just like before. I’m going to take a few days off from the Bellows, but I anticipate that I’ll post on other topics here, as I did before.

So that’s that! I feel as though a twister came through and flung my home around in the air, then set everything down as it was before. Which, I suppose, is a pretty good way for it to end up.


  1. Doug says:

    I’m glad to hear of it. See you there and enjoy the time off.

  2. Daniel says:

    Congrats and yes, you did land well.

  3. Lee GIbson says:

    Excellent news. But I do wish the posts at Free Exchange would identify the individual posters.

  4. Mike says:

    Ryan, I look forward to reading you there, but how will I know when it’s you? Can you give the Ryan Avent fans a way to determine if a post on Free Exchange is yours?

  5. Chi Democrat says:

    Congrats, I was hoping that would happen. Am not sure why but your posts there came across more impressively than here and the posts there currently come across less impressively than when you were there. A return to the former status quo will be a good thing.

  6. Flip says:

    All’s well that ends well. I’d like to read a column about the consequences of OPEC petroleum pricing leveling out at $75 per barrel –

  7. Patrick says:

    Glad to here it.

  8. Felix says:

    Does that make me the butterfly which flapped its wings which caused the hurricane which flung your home around only for it to set it down as it was before?

    If so, um, sorry. And let’s hope that it all really does go back to the status quo ante: full RSS at Free Exchange, not to mention my byline on my Portfolio posts…
