I don’t know about you, but I’m a very visual person.  I was born with a heightened use of my right brain and I have ever since learned and took in information better with visual aids.  Throw some pictures, graphs and charts in front of me and I’ll be like a kid in a candy store.  We here at Online MBA have been searching far and wide for economic blogs that indulge us visual fanatics.  Not that I don’t appreciate all the information from the academics and researchers, but we right-brainers need a little more.

The following list of economic blogs not only gives us great insights and updates, but they incorporate ‘eye candy’ as well.  Why 49 and not 50 you ask – why not?  49 is a square number and it made you wonder why we didn’t just pick 50, right?  We got your attention and that’s partly why you’re reading this, right?  Without further adieu, here are the winners of Online MBA’s best Economic Blogs with the use of Visual Aids.
