Blogs as a marketing tool for economic departments

The Mises Economics blog notes how George Mason University professors have been using blogs for the past few years. In addition to any individual gain the professors may receive from writing, the blogs give prospective graduate students a way to find out more about the professors with whom they will be colleagues in the upcoming years.

For anyone interested in the UC-San Diego Economics Department, Jim Hamilton’s Econbrowser blog is a great place to start.
