Run-Off for Best Classical Liberal/Libertarian Academic Blog Contest



The results are in from the first round of the best classical liberal/libertarian academic blog contest. The only clear majority winner was Theory & Practice, for best new individual blog. Congratulations!

The other contests will need to be settled by the run-off (possibly run-offs).

The economists dominated the group category. The Mises Economics Blog came in first but fell short of the necessary absolute majority. It will compete in the run-off with the second place winner, Marginal Revolution . The story is more complicated in the Best Individual Blog and Best New Group Blog contests.

The Austro-Athenian Empire won a convincing plurality while two other blogs tied for second place: Totalitarianism Today and the Knowledge Problem. All will compete in the run-off. There will also be a three-way race in the Best New Group category. Café Hayek was first while Positive Liberty and EconLog were in a dead heat for second place.

Voting will be in the comments section and will close on January 31. The choices for the run-off are listed below and you can vote once in each category. Of course, if you voted in the first round, you can vote now too. Let the best blog win!

Whoops! From the excited tone of the blog posting announcing the runoff, I thought that this was another runoff...so it looks like I cast two votes (count several ballots up), but I think that the managers will be smart enough to discount one. Sorry.

Best general blog: Marginal Revolution (I will defend this against anyone who brings it up to me at the ASC.)

Best individual blog: Austro-Athenian Empire. (I have to say though, if Roderick doesn't pick up the pace I might waver.)

Best new blog: Yeah, still Cafe Hayek.
