Welcome Ben Vanmetre

Neighborhood Effects readers may have noticed a new author has joined us. Ben Vanmetre has already contributed a couple of excellent posts. Ben is a Mercatus MA fellow. Like many fellows, he has already developed an impressive CV in his nascent career. You can read Ben’s published papers, book reviews, and OpEds at his personal website. And you can learn more about the Mercatus Masters or Ph.D. programs at the Mercatus Graduate Student Programs website.

Note to readers: Ben joined us at an opportune time as I spent much of last week in the picturesque mountains of New Mexico not blogging (and, unfortunately, not catching any fish). I should be resuming my regular pace as soon as I adjust to the lack of sunshine in Arlington, VA.
