I like using ls -l but it would be convenient to have this information shown in the Finder. Is there a way to do this?

That is not one of the columns supported by the Finder's list view. Path Finder, a Finder replacement application, will show this information in a column in its list view.

A solution for your problem would be using the Inspector.

When using Finder, type Cmd+Opt+I.

It's like having the "Show Information" window, except it shows the information for the selected folder.
