I’m just a trucking accident trial lawyer in Georgia, and it’s been over three decades since my last economics class in college. Therefore, even though I read the Wall Street Journal and Investors Business Daily more or less regularly, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that my blog post about implications of the economic crisis for trucking and insurance was cited as one of the best legal blog posts expressing insight on the ongoing economic calamity. My econ profs at Furman way back when would be astonished.
