Economix Blog

I have only recently started looking at this blog - for people interested in more micro analysis of public policy (like most of the people who read our blog) this is really useful. Contributors include Alan Krueger and Edward Glaeser.

Some really interesting posts include a breakdown of where Obama's stimulus package will be spent . Their posts on higher education (including one from Glaeser on a stimulus package for low-skilled workers) are also really good. Glaeser's post urging governments to think very carefully about value for money in job creation makes an obvious but important point.

you'd wonder why they use "x" rather that "cs" - i have a feeling I know one answer that will be forthcoming

It mixes economics with everyday life?
