I have been informed that the two additional books, Poor Economics and Freakonomics, were not ordered. They are being ordered. In the meantime, you are welcome to order the books from another source, such as Amazon, and I will post Chapters 2 and 3 of Poor Economics on Moodle so that you can do this week and next week’s readings.
For your first assignment, I would like you to explore the idea of blogging a bit. What does it mean to blog? How is blogging different from other kinds of writing. Find three to four blogs that are specifically about statistics or economics or econometrics and put them on a blogroll or link list on your blog. How do these blogs treat their subjects differently? How often do they blog? What do you find interesting or not as interesting about them?
This post is due at 9am Friday morning, August 31.
