Carnival of the Commies

Filed under: — Different River @ 1:09 pm

Carnival of the Capitalists, the weekly roundup of economics blogs, has been going strong since October 2003, so I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that the “other side” has gotten into the act as well. Here’s week #2 of Carnival of the Commies. Thanks to The Glittering Eye for the link.

By the way, just to keep things straight: I am an “economist” not an “e-communist” like those folks. Try keeping that straight, even if you say it out loud. ;-)

CORRECTION/CLARIFICATION: I posted this before fully reading through the round-up, and before getting the first comment below. Carnival of the Commies is a round-up of left-wing blogs, compiled by a non-left-wing blogger who keeps watch on the other side, “so you [other non-lefties] don’t have to.”

And he adds:

And, no, I don’t really think that lefty bloggers are “commies.” I chose the name because (a) it is delightfully alliterative, (b) it is juxtaposed to the Carnival of the Capitalists, a well-known “Carnival” brand and (c) it is so dated that it is much more goofy than insulting, and I’m really not interested in offending anybody (in this post, anyway).

    Thanks for the link!

    Of course, Carnival of the Commies is a bit tongue in cheek…
