is professor of economics at George Mason University and at the Center
for the Study of Public Choice, and Director of the James Buchanan
Center and the Mercatus Center in Fairfax, Virginia. Alex Tabarrok is
associate professor of economics at George Mason University, research
director for The Independent Institute and a research fellow with the
Mercatus Center. Marginal Revolution is lively, stimulating and
well-written. It covers current events, economic policy, links to other
economics blogs and quick thoughts on practically anything ("A woman's

economics bloggers, are short, readable and light on academic jargon.
And there's humor: in a discussion of how to reform economics graduate
education, Tyler Cowen concludes that "My recipe for George Mason, my
own school, is different. Most of the graduate students simply need to
work harder." Launched in March 2005, multiple posts per day, good
categorization of articles but no site search.
