  1. A quality article, though the results are not especially surprising. It makes sense that there is more disagreement about the quality of more recent economists. I was surprised that nearly half of economists read economics blogs.
    One quibble, Paul Romer is incorrectly coded as being over 60.

  2. I was intrigued by your title, but the first line of the abstract is very disconcerting: “A sample of 299 U.S. economics professors, presumably random, responded to our survey…” In survey research, one can never merely presume that a survey sample is random. The implication in your abstract is that your sample has not been assessed for its representativeness of the population of all economists, either in terms of observable characteristics or selection on unobservables. This left me wondering whether I would learn anything useful about the population of interest, or only your sample of respondents, whatever subset of that population they may be. The abstract suggests the latter, so I decided my scarce time would be best spent reading something else.
