This is the bi-weekly visible open thread. Post about anything you want, ask random questions, whatever. Also:
1. Did you perhaps miss Open Thread 50.25, Open Thread 50.5, and Open Thread 50.75? Remember, this blog now has “hidden” open threads every Wednesday and Sunday (except the Sunday of a visible open thread like this one). You can find them by going to the “Open Thread” tab at the top of the page in the blue area.
2. Comments of the week include Trollumination on dualization in labor markets and JDDT on British union-hospital bargaining. I also really liked this long thread about people’s political conversion stories – ie who started off with one political position and switched to a very different one.
3. I may or may not switch to writing fewer but longer posts sometime soon. I feel like I get the most out of really comprehensive review posts, or complicated theory posts like this, and I don’t have the time to write them if I’m writing a couple of posts a week. So don’t be surprised if quantity starts to drop off.
