How long before we are doing all our empirical research on Google?

You can bet that commercial and subscription-based academic data providers like Thompson Financial, CRSP, Compustat, Global Insight, etc. are paying close attention. (BTW I still think the World Freedom Atlas is cooler.)

    This is off topic but afte reading a paper by Peter I think that the blog that used to be called The Austrian Economists should have been re-named “The Mundane Economists”.
    http://web.missouri.edu/~kleinp/papers/08101.pdf

    I like the point about prices as the paradigm of the spontaneous order. After all, Mises said that the crowning glory of the Mundane Economists was their concern with real prices in real markets.

    No summary available yet Nicolai:)

    Thanks for the shout-out, Rafe. The published version is here:

    Of course, the guys over at Coordination Problem are more sympathetic to the exotic Austrian ideas I criticize. ;-)

    It is hard to keep up in a fast-moving field like Mundane Economics.

    Who was that old guy who said you can’t do experiments in economics?
