Working to spend your money

Hence the name “Excess Burden”

I will issue this notice, without comment, from the American Economic Association.

Job Openings for Economists has been published only electronically for the past decade. Starting with the August 2011 issue, the Association will resume publishing JOE in print format, in order to ensure compliance with Department of Labor regulations for obtaining work visas for non-citizen economists. Print issues will be distributed via the U.S. Postal System two to three weeks after they are published electronically.

Somehow the profession managed to slide by for 10 years without a print version, but now we’ll start printing them up again because, um… Right.  So, you’ll be getting that about a month after the job listing is posted just in case your internet connection is permanently disabled.

Okay, so I commented a little.
