Having finally caught up with (Australian) Steven Hail’s productive relationship with Interest.co.nz editor @GarethHVaughan, I’ve added information to #GlobalMMT: Commentary re Developed & Developing Nations and created a page for Steven Hail. Linked from People Doubtless, I’ll be adding more.

Added to “Debates & Controversies” – still my favorite page on the site. Read from oldest (at the bottom) to newest to follow the story line.
