Karl Smith’s Modeled Behavior (not to be confused with Offsetting Behaviour) is a good economics blog, but underread despite incoming links from big names. While he’s taken time out to note his indignation over ClimateGate, the demands of his actual job have led him to invite Adam Ozimek to cover for him. A good choice, I say. He’s been cranking out a good number of high quality posts. Readers are invited to check it out.

Scott Sumner will not be so new a name. His blog had been silent since the 18th of this month, but when I checked it out this morning he had tossed of eight posts! The one I linked to is small enough to fit entirely in my browser screen, but the other seven aren’t. The man is an animal.
