Most popular posts of 2017

The insight from this year’s ‘most popular’ reckoning is …. that people love lists. The first four places in fact go to lists. Here’s the full top ten:

  1. The year ahead in economics books – or at least my gleanings from the spring catalogues
  2. The Enlightened Economist Prize longlist
  3. The Enlightened Economist Prize winner
  4. A look ahead from the autumn publishers’ catalogues
  5. My review of Jean Tirole’s Economics for the Common Good
  6. An appreciation of Will Baumol
  7. My review of a new biography of Edith Penrose
  8. My review of Dani Rodrik’s Straight Talk on Trade
  9. A trailer for Dani Rodrik’s Straight Talk on Trade
  10. A review of Howard Wainer’s Truth and Truthiness

If it was only about traffic, I’d stick to lists, Jean Tirole and Dani Rodrik in 2018.
