The Internet changes everything: Economist in India edition

A few days ago I wrote a blog post about fears of inflation in the US and the UK in the wake of unconventional monetary policy and unusual fiscal policy. This got widely noticed thanks to links from RGE Monitor and Economists View. Today I ran a google search for the exact title and it shows 1,120 links to it (and google hasn't yet noticed Economists View). This shows a much bigger distribution of this content than the 3,200 odd people subscribing to this feed. Before the Internet, it was much harder for an economist in India to be part of the contemporary global discourse in this fashion.
