Reading the “Top Ten Economics Bloggers by Scholarly Content”, I wondered what makes a good economics blogger. Daily, the first blogs that I go to are Mankiw and marginalrevolution.com.
I am especially impressed by Mankiw’s Blog. He is civil, his posts are current, varied, sometimes very funny, always insightful, nicely balanced between bias and fairness.
