Hello, world

Hello, world

This post is just for fun. Well, fun for me at least.

Thanks to the clustrmaps plugin, I can tell how many visits this blog has had from each country. I then used a neat Visited Countries tool by Douwe Osinga that allows you to color countries you have visited to create the map below.

People from 152 countries have visited KeithHennessey.com, 67.5% of all States in the world.

A lot of my international traffic comes courtesy of Greg Mankiw. His economics textbooks are used around the world and he has quite a global following. Any time Greg links to me I get a lot of international visitors.

I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that 86% of my traffic is from the U.S. The next ten top visiting countries, in descending order, are:

  1. Canada
  2. China
  3. United Kingdom
  4. Australia
  5. Germany
  6. Japan
  7. India
  8. France
  9. Spain
  10. New Zealand

These numbers do not include traffic to the Chinese mirror of KeithHennessey.com. Thanks to Netease for providing it.

Finally, here’s the list of 152 countries that have had someone visit this blog, grouped by continent. I think this is incredibly cool.





To my guests from around the world:

Welcome, thank you for visiting, and I hope you learn a little about American economic policy while you’re here. Please leave me a comment on this post!

  1. Congratulations, Keith!

    I am an American expatriate living in Ukraine, so I would be one of the statistics. I appreciate following your blog very much, as I seldom fail to learn from it. I have followed politics and economics for nearly four decades now, yet I am always learning.

    I think it’s more than time for the U.S. to do a radical shift in tax policy, either to the “fair tax” or a flat tax. I know the flat tax has worked extremely well in Russia, and one of these two would help American competitiveness a great deal, I believe.

  3. That's definitely cool!! I'm impressed that you've even had visitors from Djibouti, where I lived for a couple of years long ago. Keep up the great work.
