As long-time readers know, I only visit a sparse number of blogs in my daily routine. Two bloggers whom I read constantly are Bob Wenzel and Scott Sumner.
For a fun reader quiz, I will now quote a passage from a recent blog post by one of these men. Can you guess which one? (You only get one guess.) Since I’m not providing a link, it will be tough, I realize. But these guys have their own distinctive writing styles, and with careful analysis you should be able to confidently identify the writer of the below passage. Good luck.
I recently was invited by Brink Lindsey to speak to a group of bloggers, reporters, academics, think tankers, and policymakers in Washington DC. I was surprised at how many well known people showed up to hear my views on monetary policy. Many of the faces (Bob Samuelson, Bruce Bartlett, Ezra Klein, etc) were instantly recognizable (even though I had never met them.) I met two of my favorite bloggers for the first time; Ryan Avent and Matt Yglesias. The next day I had lunch with a bunch of George Mason faculty/bloggers, including Tyler Cowen, Alex Tabarrok, Bryan Caplan, Garett Jones and Robin Hanson. I’m not used to feeling like the dumbest guy at the table.
