No traffic from the NYT

Greg Mankiw complains that this article in the New York Times which mentioned his blog did not generate a significant bump in traffic.

He speculates that this might be because it described his blog as "heavy on theory" (followed by our favourite headline about the unit root hypothesis).

I'm afraid it's just as likely to be the description as "a conservative blog" that's responsible. This is the New York Times, after all.
