    I've taken to referring to dKos as "where economic agenda diaries go to die" because, well, they do.  There's a blog run by econ Prof. Mark Thoma called "economist's view" which is scholarly, but also framed in a very progressive context, where there is a little more discussion of the effect of economic policies on people especially in the comments.

    Yes, economic policy proscriptions aren't discussed here, but on the other hand you can discuss where the economy is headed and what it's current problems are with people whose comfort zone politically is  similar to your own (and btw, I have written diaries recently on consumer refinance, retirement, and deficit issues but of course they may not be the kind of economic policy issues you're interested in).

    If you want to diary on an economic policy, I'll definitely participate assuming I'm on at the time.

    Cheers.

      i give up. bondad posts stuff under the heading of objective economic news, but it isn't half as good as whats already out there, and he never talks politics, and the locals just pile on and gladhand him, and yeah dude wasnt that six inch wave really gnarly. i mean everyone has their audience, and their supporters.
      sometimes i can get a rise out of jerome but he's too busy playing handball with the financial times. i gave up on bob prechter, gary dorsch is pretty sharp, and that guy at prudentbear.
      meanwhile iraq is just a game of keep away, keep the democrats away from the budget so they cant spend money on social programs and use their leverage to win the election. bush is one sorry mother.
