Recommended Blogs on Econ and Politics

Economist's View
This isn't necessarily the best blog, but it gives you links and updates from a bunch of other blogs.

This is a website, not a blog, with papers, essays, and articles written by Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz. He is arguably the best and most renowned economist in the world today.

Great blog on econ and politics, with a lively comments section.

CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names
A progressive newsletter, it will open your eyes to perspectives you never thought of before. It also includes articles written from a host of people that you normally wouldn't expect to ever get to directly read, including Ralph Nader, Fidel Castro, and Al Sharpton. Nevertheless, a range of views is expressed on this site, which can generally be classified as not mainstream.

Crooked Timber — Out of the crooked timber of humanity, no straight thing was ever made
A blog maintained by a number of academics from around the world, discussing politics, philosophy, and history.

Grasping Reality with Both Hands
Blog maintained by economist Brad Delong, generally a good and frank critic of politics and the economy.
