Economics Blogger Gets Senior Fed Job
Economics blogging can be good for your career. David Altig, author of the Macroblog has just been named research director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

So let’s see: he’s associate director of research of one Fed bank and gets promoted to director at another bank. While I think bloggers tend to be somewhat more interesting people :-), something tells me blogging has little to do with it.
