Economists and blogs

Greg Mankiw links to an article in LA Times on economics blogs (the article mentions that Lawrence Summers writes a blog- I’m not sure whether this is the case).

Recently The Economist had two articles on economics blogs; Pigou or NoPigou? and Economists' blogs; The invisible hand on the keyboard.

As for me one reason why I blog relates to the fact in high school the economics teacher we had showed up to class for about 3 months of the two year period. I wish we had access to economics blogs or for that matter the internet. If I had been of any help to any student in similar circumstances I would have achieved my main objective.

My challenge for Econ bloggers; To sponsor a student (high school or undergraduate) in a developing country, be a tutor and mentor for him/her and be a personal guide till the student finishes school.
