No Top Financial Bloggers Hail From Accounting Departments....Yet

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article about the top economics blogs.

If you don’t read many blogs, you should definitely read the article and navigate along to the websites.  They even provide a listing of 30 recommended econ/finance blogs.

That said, I would like to emphasize that the FASRI blog has a goal quite different from these other sites.  They seek a popular audience of financially-minded readers from the broader public.  In contrast, FASRI is really intended to reach the far narrower audience of academic researchers and standard setters, with the occasional practitioner thown in.

Still, reading these blogs will give you a sense of what new media can mean to academics, with quite varying styles.
