William Easterly is blogging

Ignacio Hernandez's picture

William Easterly has started blogging at Aid Watch, with the idea of being brutally honest when aid is not helping the poor, but also praising it when it is.

In his first comment a few days ago he was brutally honest with the president of the World Bank (where he spent sixteen years as a Research Economist).

A very nice addition to the blogosphere. Welcome!

Professor has some great points, at times. A number of us are also concerned that some of his arguments are not very well fleshed out, based on dramatic oversimplifications of complex issues and in several instances even miss the point. We've started a blog called Bill Easterly Watch: Just Asking that Bill Stop Blowing Over Straw Men to try and flesh some of these arguments out.
