This is, it should be said, mildly pleasing.
For there was a certain person who was very pleased indeed to be high up on this very list last month.
You’ll note Tax Research UK comes in at number 6.
But let’s put that in context: four of the five blogs that beat it are run by either the BBC or the Economist; the other has multiple authors.
And of those that follow Tax Research UK at least eight are run by major media organisations, one (Malcolm Coles) seems to have remarkably little economic content, and some of the others have multiple authors. No others are from a left of centre perspective (well, Paul Mason may well be, but not for the BBC).
And all I did was inform Wikio that I probably should be in their \”Economy\” rankings as well.
Yes, this is all rather trivial, simply shows that I am truly in touch with my inner child.
But being a part of three blogs that are in the top five of that list (for I did, way back when, do some work on the Economist blog) is, as I say, mildly pleasing.
