Another couple nice mentions of Freedomnomics
After his book Freedomnomics, I think that Professor Lott is my favourite economist. He generally makes a lot of sense, although his blog tends to focus on the benefits of gun ownership a tad more than I would prefer (not that I am anti-gun ownership, it just is not a subject which interests me too much).
And another nice mention of Freedomnomics can be found here:
For those interested in more on the economy, I highly recommend Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell. This easy to understand book explains the basic tenets of our free market. Other great reads include Applied Economics and Freedomnomics.
