Aid Watch

That's the title of development economist, and foreign aid skeptic, William Easterly's new blog (via Greg Mankiw). "The objective is to be brutally honest when aid is not helping the poor, but also praising it when it is." It doesn't sound like he'll be pulling any punches.

A few other development blogs worth reading regularly:
Chris Blattman's blog
Dani Rodrik
The Center for Global Development's blog
The World Bank's PSD blog. There are a million others but these are among the best and most well known. Easterly is instantly among the most important and significant writers out there though, in pretty much any field.
