congrats O&M

First, congrats to O&M, our evil twin, for a fantastic showing in a recently published ranking of economics blogs!  Here’s the full article, here’s the ranking by scholar, and here’s the ranking of economics blogs based on scholarly impact.  (Beyond the recognition that O&M gets — the article itself is sort of interesting as well.)

But, it doesn’t end there.  O&M’s Peter Klein wonders about how orgtheory would fare in the analysis and then in the comments calls for “the head-to-head twin-versus-twin battle we’ve all been dreaming about.”

As readers know, we’re more sociological and social — well, and nice — around here, but if we indeed did happen to agree to such a “battle,” it would have to be done properly.  Namely, the analysis would have to include everyone who contributes to a given blog (in our case, in a huge way), including guest bloggers.

Well, we’re happy for our younger, evil twin.  Nice to see them get some attention.

  2. Peter: Not a bad couple months for you — O&M gets a little bit of press, your adviser gets the Noble Prize, and your work is cited by the Nobel committee. Now, what’s next?

  3. Oh, no! The ratchet effect!

  6. That article does not include Krugman’s blog, which has been around for a while.
