Economics

My favorite new Internet read is economists’ blogs. Short-term, off-the-cuff analysis of current events and trends by people whose discipline is to do just that. Often, economics articles come in conjunction with other editorial features; economist blogs give me lots of present-tense economic theory without waiting for a particular contextual frame.

Some of the blogs I’m reading:

The Big Picture

Freakonomics

The Sports Economist (particularly entertaining)

Marginal Revolution
