Who is the Britney Spears of Economics Bloggers?

Reuters has a story about economists who blog, and why they do it.

Of course the story can't mention every blog, but I'm surprized that Marginal Revolution was not mentioned. It's the best economics blog out there. Another of my favorites, Greg Mankiw, does get a mention.

It's fair enough to open the story with a mention of Brad DeLong, although he's not my cup of tea. But then the article starts to reflect the standard confusion about what economics is. One of my favorite bloggers is mentioned, but Daniel Drezner himself would emphasis that he's not an economist. Next, a blog for investors is mentioned - reflecting the standard misconception that economists are stock market analysts.

Thanks to nzm for the link.
