Why subscribe?

A good question. But consider the thought that this newsletter is really a weekly public policy thought-letter. Also consider that while excellent newsletters on specific themes within public policy already exist, this thought-letter is about frameworks, mental models, and key ideas that will hopefully help you think about any public policy problem in imaginative ways.

It seeks to answer just one question: how do I think about a particular public policy problem/solution?

If you’re still with me, this attempt is based on an unsubstantiated insight that the newsletter is the new blog. Blogging is dead because the opportunity costs of reading and writing a blog post are too high. A thought-letter, at least the model I have in my mind, instead is several blog posts rolled into one and delivered to your email inbox.
