Online Economic Resources

leave a comment »

I am certainly not the best blogger. I’ve left this page quiet for a few months now, and don’t foresee myself staying active in the future. To make sure your trip to my blog wasn’t a waste, I’ve decided to post some links to excellent economic blogs and commentaries. I use the term “economics” broadly, because in no way do these websites cover only economic issues, but delve deeper into foreign affairs, philosophy and the current rhythm of business. The best thing about becoming a follower of the blogs I mention is that they will direct you to other excellent sources of information. The world is truly at your fingertips if you know where to look online. Isn’t it great being a student!

Blogs:

Greg Mankiw’s Blog: By far, my favorite online resource. Mankiw is an economics professor at Harvard, and consistently updates his page with personal insights and links to interesting commentaries.

Dani Rodrik’s Blog: Not as active as Mankiw’s, but another page by another premier economic educator.

Worthwhile Canadian Initiative: A Canadian focused blog from Stephen Gordon, an economics professor at l’Universite Laval in Quebec. More “data” focused than the previous two, but great for those interested in the Canadian rhythm.

Commentaries:

Project Syndicate: A MUST visit. This website is a collaboration of newspaper style articles written by leading experts in their subject area. It is designed to bring the public up-to-date with what’s really going in the world.

The Economist: A great site, giving detailed commentary into recent news regarding business, finance, foreign affairs and economics.
