Economics For Everyone

In case you are a huge dork like me, I will point out two economics blogs that are understandable to the non-economics student. Dear Economist is a Dear Abbey type blog with a twist. The blog answers the readers questions using economics. The writing is pretty witty, although the solutions to the problems are sometimes not very realistic. The Freakonomics blog is written by the authors of the popular book by the same name. It often links to other interesting economics papers and topics, as well as responding to criticisms of their book and papers.
