Olivier Blanchard’s Greatest Hits

For a man who declared on his arrival at the IMF “I do not blog,” Olivier Blanchard, our soon-to-be former Chief Economist, is one hell of a blogger.

Prolific and popular. A demi-god: half economist, half artist.  Blanchard writes the way he thinks: sharp, frank, and intellectual, while pushing against the edges of his métier with the creativity and honesty of a singular economist.

To mark his departure, we’ve pulled together some of the most read and talked about of his blogs for iMFdirect over the years.
