Professor’s blog makes top of Chicago Tribune “sites you should read” list

thomaProfessor Mark Thoma’s well-regarded blog, Economist’s View, has topped another list, this time getting the first-place mention in the February 18, 2015 post from Noah Smith of Bloomberg News, writing for the Chicago Tribune’s online edition.

His article, “Economics blog sites you should read,” lists Economist’s View top among the “Gatekeepers” category, calling it “the backbone of the econ blogosphere.”

“This is your one- stop shop if you’re starting out,” Smith continues.

Smith focuses his article on independent bloggers who don’t represent a major media platform.

Mark Thoma joined the UO’s Department of Economics in 1987
