Tales out of school

My semester begins this Thursday, but although it will make for rather a juggling act I am hoping this will enliven my blog rather than crowd it out. Fresh material.
Teaching regular classes, though hopefully not too excruciating for the student attendees, is not inherently worth sharing with the world (admttedly a grandiose way of describing my readership). But what I am doing this year for the tenth straight spring, and hopefully into the future, is running a tax policy workshop (called, in approved NYU Law style, the Tax Policy Colloquium) in which speakers come by weekly to present their papers. Or actually, they come by and we present their papers (we being myself and David Bradford, the Princeton economist who also spends some time at NYU). This can be more stimulating than listening to a rehash of the paper because it makes for fuller dialogue. From the standpoint of the blog, it should result in plenty to talk about, mainly substance but without my declining to stoop when necessary to anecdote.
The first paper (mine) is already posted here, and here is the entire schedule:
January 13 - Daniel Shaviro, NYU Law School, "The Approaching Fiscal Train Wreck."
January 20 - Thomas Griffith, USC Law School, "Progressive Taxation and Happiness."
January 27 - Reed Shuldiner, University of Pennsylvania Law School, "Taxation of Risky Investments."
February 3 - Michael Livingston, Rutgers-Camden Law School,[paper on comparative US/Italian/Israeli taxation].
February 10 - Vicki Been, NYU Law School, "Impact Fees and Housing Affordability."
February 17 - Herwig Schlunk, Vanderbilt and NYU Law Schools,"A Minimalist Approach to Corporate Income Taxation."
February 24 - Louis Kaplow, Harvard Law School, excerpt from "Taxation and Redistribution."
March 3 - Larry Zelenak, Duke Law School, "Redesigning the Earned Income Tax Credit as a Family-Size Adjustment to the Minimum Wage."
March 10 - Kyle Logue, University of Michigan Law School, "The New Market in Tax Insurance: Eliminating Uncertainty or Enabling Tax Avoidance?"
March 24 - Steve Bank, UCLA Law School, "A Capital Lock-In Theory of the Corporate Income Tax."
March 31 - David Hasen, University of Michigan Law School, "Theories of Endowment Taxation."
April 7 - Peter Orszag, Brookings Institution, "Reforming Social Security."
April 14 - Sagit Leviner, University of Michigan Law School, "Taxation: The Normative Component."
April 21 - Neil Buchanan, Rutgers-Newark Law School, "Taxing Average Income: A Progressive Alternative to the Annual Income Tax."

Great blog on pay per click internet marketing. I've stumbled on a superb money making website. Linkreferral is free to join and drives traffic to your website in an inivitive way (the more sites you visit, the more links you get back to your website.)

I've only been a member of Linkreferral for aproximately 2 weeks but I have already seen the volume of people coming to my site double - if not treble.

Linkreferral is not only driving visitors to my website but as a result my affiliate sales income has doubled also.

I really cannot push this website enough. It is free and it is fantastic!! www.linkreferral.com is a must for money making opportunities online.

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in home mortgage loan california and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.
Sign up now - it's free.
. Sorry if this information is of no use to you but seeing as you have the anonymous feature enabled I thought I should share this free bit of essential promotional advice with you and would hope you would do the same for me and others who want to boost their online internet income.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.
