We are happy to welcome Michael McBride as a guest-blogger. Mike studies happiness, religion, and the politics of development at UC-Irvine. Naturally, this means he’s an economist. His happiness research was recently in the news here . That’s right, only the cutting edge stuff makes it onto T&S!
Mike studied a bunch of economics at USC as an undergrad, then crossed over to Yale where he studied a whole bunch more and got a doctorate. He then hurried back to Southern California so he could be better positioned to cheer on USC sports and the Lakers.
Mike is married to Caroline de Exponent-II-blog and they are happily expecting some sort of hybrid feminist-economist baby boy to join them in August. Welcome, Mike!
