Vote for Truth on the Market in the ABA Journal Blawg 100

Geoffrey Manne —  9 December 2011

Editors of the ABA Journal recently selected Truth on the Market as one of the top 100 law blogs. Blogs dedicated to law have proliferated in the last few years and of the 3,500 entries in their directory, the ABA Journal placed Truth on the Market among the top six dedicated to business law.

Congratulations are in order for all of those involved. Eric Helland, Thom Lambert, Larry Ribstein, Paul Rubin, Mike Sykuta, J.W. Verret, and Josh Wright are among the most insightful law & economics thinkers I know. Meanwhile, our excellent commenters turn the posts into great conversations and often provide thought-provoking points.  Some of our regular, pseudonymous commenters, in particular (you know who you are–and so do we!), have engendered some of our best–and most interesting–disputes.

Explaining the nomination, the Journal captured both the spirit and the mission of TOTM:

This blog’s academic commentary on economics, antitrust law and corporate governance is never stuffy. These profs make astute observations and find concrete examples to make their points—and very often, they think the point is that there should be less government regulation all around.

But we’re not done yet.  Until December 30, polls are open over at the ABA Journal to vote for your favorite blog in each of the categories.  We urge all of our readers to go to to register and to vote for Truth on the Market in the Business Law category. At the moment we’re neck and neck with our friend Prof. Bainbridge for the top slot.  It may be close, but the 8 of us should be able to best the 1 of him!

Thanks again to all our readers, commenters and to my fellow bloggers.

    Eight to one. Sounds like a fair fight. Luckily, “I know kung fu.”

    BTW, bonus points will be awarded for spotting the derivative source of the quotation as well as the original source.


      “The Matrix,” after Tank downloads kung fu skills into Neo?

      But isn’t the more apt (though less familiar) quote “I’ll handle this” — said by Neo to Morpheus and Trinity as an indication that he can deal with the Merovingian’s five fighters, given the N on 1 nature of the fight?
