In a column "Guide to the Blogs Insiders Read to Stay Current," this morning’s WSJ had some nice very things to say about The Big Picture; it was an honor just to be included:

"Here are some of the most influential blogs across industries ranging from publishing and finance to health care and Hollywood, put together by The Wall Street Journal’s beat reporters in these areas."

Here’s the key para:

"This blog mixes straight market commentary with Mr. Ritholtz’s musings on the inner workings of glamorous industries such as music, film and technology.  Ritholtz mulls over interest rates, gross domestic product and bond markets, complete with charts and links to news sites. Then, on separate pages, he ruminates on movie box-office slumps, TiVo and music file-sharing. Contemplation takes many forms, including quotes and essays. He evaluates news like the latest on the avian flu and inserts eye-catching charts and graphics to make his point."

Thanks for the kind words!

I never think of these as "glamor" industries, but rather, areas that are quite fascinating — rapid growing sectors that are key to the US economy.   

Take a look at the other sites mentioned in the column — there are lots of great pages mentioned, and I am humbled to be included with other sites I consider to be terrific.

Here’s the link to the free version of this:

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Who else was included? (Sorry, I’m not going to go check out WSJ after their public support for torture.)
