The discussion is taking place across the Econ blogosphere so links
below are just a few samples.

>From the post:
"They find that three main issues stand out. First, Reinhart and
Rogoff selectively exclude years of high debt and average growth.
Second, they use a debatable method to weight the countries. Third,
there also appears to be a coding error that excludes high-debt and
average-growth countries. All three bias in favor of their result, and
without them you don't get their controversial result."
