From the blog:
"I'm an economist at a large policy-making government agency where I analyze activity in the government sector and assess the economic consequences of tax and spending policy. Adam O'Neill is a pseudonym that ensures that my opinions and observations are not confused with those of my employer. I put this weblog together at the urging of a friend and I use it to test out thoughts, to keep myself up to date on important issues, to archive various ideas, and to contribute what I can to the public discourse. I hope that you find it interesting and useful."
