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.

  1. Acck!

    Still having site problems — back to the old design for now

  2. Shnaps says:

    I finally see the Bobby DeNiro resemblance!

  3. Whammer says:

    I was wondering why “The Flash” had returned……..

  4. emmanuel117 says:

    Delong? Seriously?

    Yves Smith, CR, or Mish belongs there.

  5. mark mchugh says:

    When I saw the pictures, I thought, “who’s the chick?” So I think Kedrosky has a better case than you.

    Anyway, I’m gonna use it for my site.

  6. DiggidyDan says:

    yeah me too. Paul looks like Janet Reno

  7. call me ahab says:

    Tyler Cowen- apart from being an economist is quite the connoisseur of D.C. Metro area dining- he has a ethnic dining guide for this area- you can google it- I used his pick for Chinese food and had some of the best Chinese I ever had- and that includes Beijing- the “Crispy Duck w/ Szechwan Sauce” was incredible, the mutton delicious, the “Princess Pig Feet” delectable- another entree next on my list is “Beef Tripe with Pig Blood and Celery” or maybe “Mala Pig Blood w/ Tofu in Hotpot”- man you have to try something like that.

  8. mark mchugh says:

    I should say, “Congratulations” too.

    Whenever my wife is expressing her displeasure with some aspect of my existence, I wait for a pause and say, “What is UP with your hair?” And as funny as I think that is, it never seems to break the tension.

    But maybe it will work here……..So Barry, what is UP with your site?

  9. ben22 says:

    that cartoon pic is no good, no purple tie.

  10. 1001 says:

    Congrats on the accolades

    You should sue , you’re much thinner

  11. wunsacon says:

    Yves and Mish!!

  12. Onlooker from Troy says:

    I think that Mish, Yves, and CR all top Kedrosky. I mean really, it’s not even close. Maybe they’re too serious without enough “entertainment value” for Money Mag. Not surprising actually, once I think about it a bit. I mean really; Money Mag, blech!

    I’m not familiar with Cowen. I’ll have to check it out.

  13. Mannwich says:

    What’s up with the lipstick? You look like the Joker.

  14. Mannwich says:

    Testing, testing. Eating comments again?

  15. ben22 says:


  16. Stuart says:

    actionable??? with that shade of lipstick?

  17. Davey says:

    Congrats, Barry. Well deserved.

  18. Onlooker from Troy says:

    I checked out Cowen’s blog. Not real impressed. A real hodgepodge. Not really a “money” blog.

  19. grgz says:

    Congratulations and well-deserved. In truth the others listed really don’t hold a candle to TBP.

  20. DaveO says:

    You look like Jackie Mason, call the lawyer or book a set in the Catskills.

  21. dead hobo says:

    BR complained:

    I can’t speak for the other bloggers, but I think my picture may be actionable . . .

    I agree. They put the wrong color of lip stick on you. You don’t actually wear that color do you?

  22. Unsympathetic says:

    Your eyebrows are unseasonably large and arched, BR.

    Perhaps your picture was taken while watching Greenspan speak? Or perhaps any of the excrementory programming on CNBC?
