Why do economists blog?

A good question and something that Dani Rodrik (Harvard) has previously looked at. This time environmental economics blog and 26econ have joined forces to present a few slides on blogging trends.

Globalisation and the environment get a honourable mention in the presentation as we previously placed environmental economics as the number 1 environmental economics blog.

All students of environmental economics are encouraged to check these sites out.

Here is the PDF presentation of the Schiff and Whitehead presentation.

It will be interesting to see if this ever gets published. I must say I am a little dubious about the quality of the data ;-)
