Last week, my colleagues Doug Diamond and Anil Kashyap guest-blogged on the financial crisis.
The response to their piece was amazing. At one point, their blog post was the second-most-emailed article of the day for the entire New York Times, even though it wasn’t even in the printed version of the paper — just on our blog.
I can’t remember ever seeing a blog post make the most-emailed list.
After that kind of reaction, how could I pass up the opportunity to publicize the ideas of Luigi Zingales, another one of my colleagues, whose provocative piece is entitled “Why Paulson Is Wrong.”
