Economic Way of Thinking

I've added the "Economic Way of Thinking" blog to the blogroll on the right.

Two of the three writers of the blog are co-authors (with the late Paul Heyne) of the Economic Way of Thinking textbook. I used that book in my high school economics class and it played a role in getting me interested in economics. When I got to college at the University of Washington, I ended up being mentored by Paul Heyne, who had a huge influence on my career switch from computer science, my interest in being an academic and my politics.

Further illustrating what a small world academic economics is, the Canadian edition of the Economic Way of Thinking text is co-authored by my former Western Ontario colleague (and all around very cool guy) John Palmer. Turns out, as I just learned, he has his own blog. I've added it to the blogroll as well.
