It's in the mail...

Actually, it's already on the editor's desk.

Yesterday, I sent off my book manuscript on the development of welfare in Mexico since the 1920s. You can browse chapters online. (Of course, I'm willing to send hard copies to anyone willing to give me feedback!)

Of the most interest to my Mexican readers will probably be the very-up-to-date discussion of the ISSSTE reform in March 2007.

Yesterday, I also re-estimated some equations (with some alternative measures to those we used in the first version--and the new results are even better!!) for a joint paper with one of our grad students and typed up some of the response-to-reviewers for a very simple R&R at JofLAS. I'll finish the revisions/response today.

And then, it's on to the next--the R&R at CP, which essentially is only cutting/tightening the literature review. It should be done by Friday, which is good because tomorrow I meet again with my RA to run the data for my new project with Andrew Roberts. He's going to present a first iteration of the project next month at a small meeting at TAMU. So all weekend is likely to be consumed with "fun with Stata." Oddly enough, I'm totally looking forward to it. (It sure beats formatting a 30+ page bibliography!)

I'm also sitting on some revised figures to insert into the paper Vicki Birchfield and I presented in early September in Florence. Once she sends me the revised text, I can do some touch-ups to the discussion of the methods, insert the new figures, and it's off to a journal. Another fun project for this weekend.
