Top Posts of 2012 (Through the First Half of the Year)

Every year I tabulate the most-read posts in this space and as the halfway mark falls on a weekend this year and in the midst of considerable turmoil in Europe, China and the United States, I thought I would provide a mid-year update for those who may be interested in doing some weekend reading.

The posts below represent those that have been read by the highest number of unique readers in 2012. Farther down there are links to similar lists going back to 2007, along with several other “best of” type posts that I have flagged for archival purposes.

For the record, each year I also attach the hall of fame label to a handful of posts that I believe have particularly compelling and/or original content, regardless of readership.
