I do not quite understand the selection criteria or the ranking criteria for this listing but I'm pleased to see that EclectEcon is listed 9th among economics blogs by educators, ahead of Robert Reich, Gary Becker-Richard Posner, and Paul Krugman, among others.
Unfortunately there are several important omissions from their list. Among the omissions are:
- Newmark's Door (Craig Newmark, NCSU). The first blog I read each day. Not always explicitly economics content, but always worth checking
- Market Power (Phil Miller, Mankato). Co-author on some sports economics work. Fascinating and enjoyable market man
- SCSU Scholars (King Banaian, St. Cloud). Knowledgeable and informative blog by two people in Minnesota.
- The Emirates Economist (John Chilton, UAE) A former colleague presents an informed perspective on the Middle East in general and the UAE in particular.
- Supply and Demand (in that order), (Casey Mulligan, Chicago) primarily on current macro. Not always mainstream, which makes it an important blog to read.
- Tim Worstall , Daily sensible commentary on economic events, primarily in England
- Bill Polley (Western Illinois), Bright Macro guy who deserves to be better known
- John Lott, Assiduous free market economist who makes everyone think harder. I wish we had hired him at UWO.
- Mike Moffat, (About Economics) a former student who has boundless energy
- and a whole bunch of others, too, listed along the right side of this blog
