Tim Kane at the Kauffman Foundation is out with his latest survey of economics bloggers (full disclosure: I am both an adviser to the survey and a participant in it).
My favorite feature this quarter is a word cloud of adjectives (and some adverbs) that the respondents offered to an open-ended question about the U.S. economy:
Uncertain, sluggish, weak, and fragile sound about right to me, but I think growing should be a bit bigger. After all, the problem we have is slow, as-yet-unimpressive growth. (I forget what I answered, but I bet uncertain and fragile were on the list.)
Among the more amusing responses from other bloggers: taupe and flirtatious.
You can find the full survey results here.
