So it's goodbye from me
I've loved writing this blog, which I started in early 2009 - just as we were all beginning to grasp the impact that the global financial crisis was having, not just on the financial markets but on the real economy.
This is my final contribution.
It's been an incredible time to be reporting on the UK and global economy. I hope with this blog and my broadcasting I've helped make sense of some of it.
Certainly it's helped my own understanding of these extraordinary times, to have to turn them into something more or less intelligible, for Stephanomics.
It's not over. We'll be living with the after-shocks of the 2008-09 financial earthquake for a long time yet. I'm going to carry on writing and thinking about all of that, and the deeper forces shaping the global economy.
Good news and bad news from the Fed
One of these days, you have to hope that the US central bank will think it's safe to starting turning off the taps. But it's not going to happen this month. And probably not the next one, either.
A sensible Martian would think it was bad news, that the US central bank thinks the world's largest economy still needs just as much emergency support as it needed a year ago.
The Federal Reserve's next job
With all the anticipation around the two-day Federal Reserve meeting that starts on Tuesday, you might think the US central bank was about to take a bold step into the unknown.
In fact, it's where the Fed is now that's the uncharted territory. The decision this week is about whether to take one small step back to the well-known.
Obama, Congress and the next Federal Reserve chair
It was always going to be peculiarly challenging to get a majority of US Senators to confirm Larry Summers as the next head of the US Federal Reserve. I am in Washington this week, and what is most surprising to people here is that the Summers' candidacy lasted as long as it did.
One lesson is that President Obama really, really, wants "one of his guys" to run the Fed (and yes, the people who fit this description are all guys). We don't yet know whether he has given up on that goal.
UK unemployment not following Mr Carney's script?
Mark Carney has been keen to link movements in UK interest rates to falls in unemployment. Apparently many investors want to do the same with the exchange rate.
News of a fall in the level of joblessness has pushed up the value of the pound to its highest level against the dollar since the spring.
Mr Osborne turns a corner
The chancellor isn't declaring victory on the recovery just yet - he's too careful for that. But he is declaring victory over Ed Balls, and in his speech today he said the UK economy had "turned a corner".
He might well be right about the recovery. Whether he's also right about Ed Balls depends on which version of the Labour argument you decide to go with.
