Happy New Year! I hope FH readers have had a great 2016 and I hope 2017 is even better. Our second year was very productive. During 2016 we launched a Facebook page that has helped draw traffic to the site. This year I hope to include more guest bloggers and to increase our page views further while increasing engagement in the comments.
In 2016, we published 90 posts here on the Farmer Hayek Blog. Topics included regulation, big data issues on the farm, monopoly theory and evidence, public choice, and many others. While noting that Google's page view counter is inaccurate, I've listed below the top 15 posts of 2016 by page view count in order from highest to lowest. I hope you enjoy looking back at these posts as much as I have!
