A couple of days ago, an article in the NY Times on blogging gave a nice mention to this forum. But my sitemeter showed no significant jump in the number of visiters. Why? Is it because the Times described this blog as "heavy on theory"?
That description, by the way, just goes to show that the author of the article was never a graduate student in an economics PhD program.
I am a professor and chairman of the economics department at Harvard University, where I teach introductory economics (ec 10). I use this blog to keep in touch with my current and former students. Teachers and students at other schools, as well as others interested in economic issues, are welcome to use this resource.
