Re: @Chris Miller

The reg really lost out when they lost Tim

They did. I still read his blog, but it's all gone a bit culture-wars-y. He's a much better writer on economics than all that other stuff. In his Register pieces Tim was usually very good at separating the economics from his opinion, telling you which was which and also saying which bits of economics were more mainstream and which were controversial.

Actually the same has happened to Paul Krugman. His blog on the New York Times used to be an interesting read of an economist's take on politics and news. But now it's 20 articles on how all Republicans are evil liars and the odd one where he actually talks about economics. Which is a real shame.
