Now we're going to go to our last invited speaker before we go to the open session, I do want to acknowledge that we're a little bit behind, about 15 to 17, 18 minutes, but hopefully that will still leave us enough time. Jason needs little introduction. One of us that has straddled academia and policy in ways that few have. I also like that, I'm kind of sandwiched between Eric and Jason because probably close to 30 years ago, Eric taught microeconomics to me and many others. And I was the teaching assistant who helped Jason go through some of the stuff and I hope I was useful. So, Jason takes it away.
