The Big Picture is my favorite economic blog and mandatory reading for me on a daily basis. The Big Picture's author, Barry Ritholtz, provides analisys of current events, financial and economic happenings, while mixing in relevant videos, reviews and comments on digital media, and even a "friday night jazz" segment, where he discusses his finds in music. This is an absolutely great place to get the straight dope on everything finance and economy related. He's never afraid to call bs on government numbers, company earnings reports, and give you an analysis of why the numbers are crap. He has an analytical and common sense approach to things that is almost completely lacking from most "experts" and commentators. If CNBC was 100% Barry Ritholtz, Mish (see my review on Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis), Bill Fleckenstein, and Jim Rogers, the average investor would be much smarter, educated and in a much better financial position. I don't agree with everything Barry says, but I respect his approach and more often than not, he's right on the money. If you want to stay up with and educate yourselve on unfolding economic events, bookmark the Big Picture.
