September 30 is the end of the fiscal year for CESJ, and consequently most of what is happening is routine tasks to comply with various government regulations and the organization’s bylaws. Still, a few things are happening:
• The CESJ core group will again be attending the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Networking Reception on Tuesday, October 27, 2015. This year we will have representatives in the fields of Economic Development and Agricultural and Rural Development.
• We have been “tweaking” the article being prepared by the editor of the journal of the National Bank of Poland on the Greek debt crisis. We expect that the Polish version will be published by the end of October, and the “official” English version by the end of the calendar year.
• CESJ’s quarterly board meeting will be held Monday, October 19, 2015.
• Father Edward Krause, C.S.C., Ph.D., is preparing to attend the annual conference of the Society of Catholic Social Scientists at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in a week and a half.
• As of this morning, we have had visitors from 45 different countries and 53 states and provinces in the United States and Canada to this blog over the past two months. Most visitors are from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, India, and the Philippines. The most popular postings this past week were “Thomas Hobbes on Private Property,” “Halloween Horror Special XIII: Mean Green Mother from Outer Space,” “The Purpose of Production,” “Aristotle on Private Property,” and “News from the Network, Vol. 8, No. 39.”
Those are the happenings for this week, at least those that we know about. If you have an accomplishment that you think should be listed, send us a note about it at mgreaney [at] cesj [dot] org, and we’ll see that it gets into the next “issue.” If you have a short (250-400 word) comment on a specific posting, please enter your comments in the blog — do not send them to us to post for you. All comments are moderated, so we’ll see it before it goes up.
