In the top 100 again

Summary:
So for the fourth year in a row, we along with our closely associated blog, Angry Bear, have been listed as among the top 100 economics blogs.  We continue to be put into the category of "financial economics," as we were last year, with little change in our description.But, hey, I am not going to complain. Quite a few blogs formerly on the list are off, replaced by the up and coming.  If there is a part of the description of us I am uncomfortable with it is the claim, made in the past as well, that we are "complicated" and that people not well-informed about economics should avoid our blog. I do not think this is generally the case, although I can appreciate that some threads have gotten off into some obscure points.But, I suspect that we shall not change much in response to any of that.

Barkley Rosser

I remember how loud it was. I was a young Economics undergraduate, and most professors didn’t really slam points home the way Dr. Rosser did. He would bang on the table and throw things around the classroom. Not for the faint of heart, but he definitely kept my attention and made me smile. It is hard to not smile around J. Barkley Rosser, especially when he gets going on economic theory. The passion comes through and encourages you to come along with it in a truly contagious way. After meeting him, it is as if you can just tell that anybody who knows that much and has that much to say deserves your attention.
