Economics Blogs

Angry Bear
was named among the top twenty independent financial blogs on the net by 24/7 Wall St. in 2010. The blog includes half a dozen professionals, including a tax law expert, a historian, PhDs in economics, business consultants and financial professionals provide perspectives on the financial world. Despite their expansive coverage of economic issues, their articles are as deep as their coverage is extensive. Topics include world trade, industrial production, U.S. Government programs, and major regulatory issues.

contains economics news, data, and analysis. It's written by John Irons, currently a Senior Economic Research and Policy Analyst and Staff Economist at OMB Watch, a Washington DC nonprofit organization, where he tracks federal tax and budget issues. Previously he was an economics professor at Amherst College.

The Becker-Posner Blog
is a class act. The authors are Gary Becker, University Professor in the Department of Economics and Sociology and Professor in the Graduate School of Business in the University of Chicago, and Judge Richard Posner, Senior Lecturer in Law at The University of Chicago Law School. Professor Becker, born in 1930, has an 8 page CV (PDF) which covers an illustrious academic career. Judge Posner has an equally rich resume (Word doc), culminating in his role as Chief Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. The blog consists of elegantly-written and carefully argued short essays by the two authors, with one often responding to the other. Subjects tend to be highly topical, such as terrorism, spam, estate taxes, China's economy, Medicare and Social Security. The blog has been operating since December 2004 with roughly one interchange plus comments per week.

I'm the founder and CEO of Seeking Alpha. Before Seeking Alpha, I worked as a technology research analyst for Morgan Stanley in New York. After I left, I wrote The ETF Investing Guide (which you can find by clicking on "Author's Picks" below), and some articles about individual stocks, and then started inviting other people to contribute to the website. Seeking Alpha is now the dominant crowdsourced platform for discussion of stocks and investing, and the only place with coverage of many mid and small cap stocks. I have a B.A from Oxford University and an MSc from The London School of Economics, and am married with five children.
