On previous Thanksgivings, I've written blog posts expressing my thankfulness for a relatively high degree of freedom in my adopted country and for various people in my life who have helped me along the way. The posts are here, here, and here. When pondering my post for this year, I realized that there is an organization that, and a person whom, I'm very thankful for and that I've have never expressed it. The organization is Liberty Fund, which funds this site. The person is the late Pierre Goodrich, whose generosity built and sustained Liberty Fund. Thank you. And thanks also to my co-bloggers Bryan Caplan and Scott Sumner and to our guest bloggers, Alberto Mingardi and Emily Skarbek. All do fine work. Thanks also to Liberty Fund's Amy Willis, who gives me good suggestions for graphics, and for the careful work of Lauren Landsburg, the overall editor of the Econlib site. Finally, thanks to Liberty Fund President and CEO Emilio Pacheco, who believes strongly in what we do. (8 COMMENTS)
