Krugman, Rodrik and Johnson blogs

I have eventually got round to adding 3 (relatively) new blogs to the blogroll of "globalisation and the environment".

Dani Rodrik's blog
Unconventional thoughts on economic development and globalization

Paul Krugman's blog

and finally,

Simon Johnson's blog
Simon Johnson's blog offers comments about economic research and the global economy around the time of the IMF's Annual Meetings, and provides an informal discussion forum around those subjects.

All three blogs look more generally at issues related to globalisation although Krugman tends to comment more widely these days.

Krugman's early work on international trade and increasing returns is cited all over my late 1990's PhD thesis while Rodrik's work appears to be cropping up all over my recent China research.

Incidently, if anyone is in Nottingham, UK, TODAY then pop in to see Dani Rodrik give a the World Economy annual lecture (apologies for the short notice).

Thursday October 18

Public Lecture
