I second those.


Roderick T. Long - 10/4/2005

Another great blog. By the way, I believe B. K. is indeed eligible. He's not an academic, but he does editorial work for the Mises Institute and so I would say meets that "professional staff at educational, research and public policy institutes and programs" clause that I was trying to use above as an Open Sesame for Charles Johnson, Alina Stefanescu, and Kenneth Gregg.


Anthony Gregory - 10/3/2005

Marginal Revolution: Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok.


Anthony Gregory - 10/3/2005

Lowercase Liberty — a blog on economics and politics by B.K. Marcus.

Roderick T. Long - 9/29/2005

Thanks, Carrie-Ann! :-)


Carrie-Ann Biondi Khan - 9/29/2005



For Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog is "Austro-Athenian Empire":

http://www.praxeology.net/unblog.htm

And for Best New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog is "Theory & Practice":

http://hnn.us/blogs/40.html



Roderick T. Long - 9/29/2005

Those are both great blogs.

I believe Charles/Radgeek satisfies the requirements, since as a Molinari Institute Research Fellow he would appear to qualify under the "professional staff at educational, research and public policy institutes" clause.

Alas, as far as I know Kevin Carson's blog isn't an "academic" blog as defined in the rules. (Maybe after we finish this contest we should have another contest....)


Ralph E. Luker - 9/29/2005

For Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog, I nominate Theory & Practice.


Sergio Alejandro M?ndez - 9/29/2005

I am not sure if I satisfy the requirements, but here are mines:

Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog: Charles Johnson, Rad Geek People´s Daily, at ywww.radgeek.com

Best New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog: Kevin Carson, Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism, at www.mutualist.blogspot.com


T J Olson - 9/28/2005

BEST new group blog?

http://www.commonsblog.org/

"The Commons" is about "Markets Protecting the
Environment," as announced in its masthead.

More expansively put, the blog brings together people
and perepctives based on the fact and argument that
all environmental problems are rooted in the absence
or inadequate definition of property rights.

Change these, and the environment stands protected.

Please visit to see examples and some timely applications.
