And on to the seventh year

Yes, this is the seventh year of blogging. Will I enter a a prolonged slump like some faculty do after obtaining tenure? Am I due for a sabbatical? Unfortunately, both may happen. As announced last Summer, my new responsibilities make it difficult for me to maintain the pace I have had in previous years. And it has shown in the last six months: I have missed days, I have been wrong on at least one occasion, and my posts have become shorter. Yet, I am more and more impressed by the following this blog is receiving and I hope the same will hold to Economic Logic, Too, where I invite others to post comments about papers they read.

Traditionally, I have reviewed the most popular posts of the year. For reasons I do not quite understand, this year's lists only contains posts from this year. So here they are:
