Are there really more than 200 english-language economics blogs?

Michael Norman said...

And here I was feeling all good about myself. :(

y,

I dont see 'Rothbardville' on there...

And looks like we are ready to jump 'von Mises Institute'...

Conspicuous in absence:

'Economist Mom' which was the blog of the Concord Coalition idiots which was shut down...

The 'fix the debt' idiots blog i dont see...

I dont see any Peterson moron associated blogs here at all which is a good sign... they may be fing up the new media channel and are just focusing on the old media which look like is having a ratings collapse as we speak...

so this could pay off for us but longer term as the new media develops...

rsp,

yeah I noticed a few blogs I know about don't feature on the list, even very high profile ones. MMT-related blogs seem to be doing quite well on that list.

Well done & thanks guys :)

MNE is my first go-too on my run around the MMT blogs.

Not a blog, but gfc & mmt on paper.li is doing a great job too, as are the people who 'share' articles there.

MMT is gaining significant ground in awareness despite the level of mainstream brainwashing that needs to be discarded.

So the profile of MMT and other stuff like PK economists is increasing amongst the economic literally population, but not amongst the general population.

To anyone interested in economics there is challenging of the status quo (at least the intellectual/academical status quo) because obvious reasons. But as long as this does not translate to general population debate and policy, and for that we need a change in perception and semantics new policy space won't open for longer term solutions.

Politicians will just hop from one bandwagon to the other as usually, but for that the bandwagon has to show. And right now the doomsayers and crazies have more public impact than rational debate.
