Economics blogs

A surprisingly long article appeared in today’s LA Times about economics blogs. It mentions lots of blogs but somewhat surprisingly misses some big ones including Brad de Long, Jane Galt and John Quiggin. It seemed to claim that there was something special about economics blogs in the blogosphere but really provided no evidence to back that up. I would be surprised if the share of economics was higher for blog discourse than other mediums.

  1. Jane Galt’s Asymmetrical Info gets a mention, but the list includes Daniel Drezner who might be surprised to learn he’s an economist.


  2. OK I missed that the first time around. Actually, Dan was my classmate at Stanford and so at least got a Masters level in economics before switching to pol sci. I think that gives him more professional qualification in economics than some econ bloggers around the place.
