Good list. I also found erictyson.com to have lots of good insights especially on financial markets and personal finance.

Re: those people who think that raising taxes has no effect on personal output levels.

It's really an eye-opener to see a calculated 93% marginal tax rate (even if the scenario is drastically simplified, e.g. changes in tax rates over time are not considered, nor is the addition of principal after the first $1 calculated). The real-world losses would be even larger, i.e. he's presented a good-case scenario and the results are horrifying.

What I miss in economics blog scene is blogs that are updated just 3-4 times a week. Current blogs require full time followers. I would prefer fewer posts with deeper analysis rather than numerous 'link posts' which usually contain links I have already seen.

correct me if I am wrong please

USA GPD first half of 2008 was at an all time record high

In third quarter GDP declined, by less than one tenth of one percent

And this is an unprecedented catastrophe?
