New outlook … | LARS P. SYLLMainstream economics has sadly made economics increasingly irrelevant to the understanding of the real world. Trying to contribute in making economics a more realist and relevant science, yours truly launched this blog in March 2011.

Now, ten years later and with millions of page views on it, yours truly is — together with people like e.g. Greg Mankiw and Paul Krugman — ranked on INOMICS’ The Top Economics Blogs list.

I am — of course — truly awed, honoured and delighted.

  1. Congratulations, Professor.

    Of the four, you and Naked Capitalism are my go-to blogs every morning over coffee.

    • Concur John and as an early advocate of Naked Capitalism [2008ish] I found Lars through the PKE community long ago. Lars blog is an oasis of non vulgar introspection in a discipline that has been corrupted, over some time, by those that would wish to dominate the social narrative for reasons of self interest above a greater good.

      Kudos Prof Syll and many thanks for your efforts.
