New outlook … | LARS P. SYLL Mainstream 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 2011. Now, ten years later and with millions of page views on it, yours truly is — together with people like e.g. Paul Krugman, Nate Silver, Dani Rodrik, Thomas Piketty, Steve Keen — ranked on Focus Economics’ Top Influencers to Follow list. I am, of course, truly delighted.


  1. Well that is a lot of responsibility taking on the task of being one of my top influencers. Even I am not sure what I am going to think in a few days. But in general, you have been a great influence on me. Thanks.

  2. Congratulations, Professor.

    You certainly deserve this recognition along with being included in the Library of Congress Economics Blogs Archive.

    I, too, have learned so much from you, especially about critical realism. Thank you.

  3. Lars,
    Congratulations on your Focus Economics ranking and the accession of your blog to the US Library of Congress archive.
    If only people like Mitch McConnell got to read it. 🙂
    I for one have certainly learned a great deal reading your blogs.
