Becker-Posner-Blog gets a mention in this week's edition of the Economist, in an article about academic blogging. I really like reading Becker-Posner because they rely solely on statistics and proven theory rather than speculation. They stick to what they know and what is concrete in giving their opinions, something that's missed in most commentary. I often end up agreeing with what they have to say. Gary Becker is a Nobel Prize-winning economist and Richard Posner is an influential circuit judge. The opinions and commentary on their site lean to the right, but not by much.

Liked what you read? I am available for hire.
