Today marks the 12th annniversary of the founding of the Outline on
Political Economy mailing list.  Thanks to all of you, this list has
become perhaps the major venue internationally among Marxians for the
ongoing discussion of controversial topics in political economy.  If the
last year is any indication, this will continue for the foreseeable
future.  We certainly showed no signs of slowing down in the last year
since the volume was consistently high and we added several new members.

I will provide some statistics at another time.  But, it's all quite

* You can at any time see who is on the list along with receiving a copy
of their email addresses by sending a "REVIEW OPE-L" message to

* A listing of current subscribers is the same as was sent in May:

* It's alsp pretty easy to see from our archives at
<http://ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/ope/archive> how many
posts have been authored each month and in the last year. The same
information can be used to calculate participation rates.

* If you look in the archives under "OPE-L Administrator" as author, you
can see who was added in the last year (Dogan, Roberto F, Michael S,
Alejandro A).

* Not all news is good news, though. You can also see from the archives
that Mike Lebowitz resigned from the list at the beginning of 2007 and
another member has been suspended.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your participation
in this joint project.  I especially want to thank the members of the
Advisory Committee (Alejandro VB, Fred, Allin) for their participation in
the administration of the list - a participation which has frequently
required that they expend larger quantities of time and energy than they
or I anticipated.

Long live OPE-L!

In solidarity, Jerry
