Marginal Revolution

Tyler Cowen
Marginal Revolution is a blog run by economists Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok, professors at George Mason University.  The blogs slogan is "small steps toward a much better world."  They post about current events, economic news and policies, and how economics relates to various real-world events.  The blog, particularly its daily links, is a fantastic resource for examples of how economics relates to the real world.  For example, how an $18 million maple syrup heist impacts supply, the economics of the MLB draft, and how people bargain.  Examples like these can be used to help make economics come alive for students.
