Given recent hectic times I’ve neglected to mention a couple of new New Zealand economics blogs.
There is also Welly Gnome, where a Vic University undergrad takes it upon himself to get into economics blogging.
I of course encourage everyone studying, teaching, and practicing economics in New Zealand to start blogging – see it as a way for us to communicate ideas. In the end it might not be for everyone, but I think its an important way of getting discourse regarding the New Zealand economy (which is at times lacking).
Some people might be worried that there would be too much “noise” – so that whatever is good won’t get through. Given how few economics blogs currently exist in New Zealand I would say that, even if the worst case scenario where the noise of a million screaming economists drowns out any useful information is what would happen, we are a long long way away from that now …
