Today is my second wedding anniversary.  Emily, it's been a wonderful two years.  I love you very much and I am extremely happy that I was able to trick you into marrying me.  :)  
On an entirely unrelated note, I recently posted a new draft article on SSRN. It talks about derivatives markets and some positive and shady behaviors they've produced (complete with colorful examples). Check it out!

Any and all thoughts greatly appreciated.

I just published an article with Bryan Camp that considers whether the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate is really mandatory (i.e., whether the IRS can actually make people pay the penalty if they don't have health insurance).  Short answer:  Probably not.  So maybe that lowers Thursday's stakes a bit. Here's a link if you're interested.  http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2091556

Last week, something I wrote was quoted in an article on NPR. Here's a link to the NPR article: http://www.npr.org/2012/03/25/149241259/in-health-case-combustible-mix-of-politics-and-law. For those who are interested, here's a link to the article I wrote that they were quoting from:

Just posted a new article, "Political Free Riding." It lays out what I think is the biggest problem with the political system and the best way to fix it. All feedback is welcome.
