NYT vs. Blogs

Bill Keller, the executive editor of the New York Times, is not a big fan of the blogosphere. He makes some good points, but leaves out the part of about how the aid and development blogosphere does approximately 1,000,000 times better at covering its area than the NYT.

UPDATE March 13: the Queen of Blog responds angrily to Keller’s personal attack on her.

    presumably the same holds true for other ‘specialisms’. what the NYT misses is development economics wider implications for all sorts of international stores / foreign policy analysis.

  • About Aid Watch

    The Aid Watch blog is a project of New York University's Development Research Institute (DRI). This blog is principally written by William Easterly, author of "The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics" and "The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good," and Professor of Economics at NYU. It is co-written by Laura Freschi and by occasional guest bloggers. Our work is based on the idea that more aid will reach the poor the more people are watching aid.
