I'm sure there's an economic point in here somewhere, but as of today, I'm removing AdSense from this blog.
This is mainly in response to AdSense's payout scheme: if your account is active, you need to reach $100 before getting a payout, while you can cancel your account and get paid if your balance is $10 or higher. I've been stuck in the middle of that range for months; I made a little money after my post about the Nationals ticketing office attracted a few thousand hits, but now I get about 15 hits a day. I'm sure my almost complete absence of new posts has something to do with that, but at this rate it would take decades to reach the $100 threshold.
So, there you have it: Econ Tricks, with a little less clutter. There are more than a few cautionary tales online about people getting screwed out of AdSense payouts, so wish me luck.
