We’ve had a big surge of first-time visitors since Simon’s interview with Bill Moyers started broadcasting last night. We hope you enjoy the site and return often. You can also get free updates using an RSS reader or via email.
On the chance that some of you are new to the economics blogs, I wanted to suggest a few other sites you might also want to check out (in addition to our Financial Crisis for Beginners section). We are nowhere close to the be-all and end-all of information about the global economy, and in any case the more perspectives you get, the better.
- Planet Money is an excellent, excellent podcast for people who are relatively new to the world of economics and the financial crisis, and for people who commute and can listen to it in their cars. I listen to it for fun.
- Calculated Risk and naked capitalism are good sources for near-real-time news about the crisis and the economy in general. Calculated Risk has a particular focus on housing and mortgages; naked capitalism has incisive commentary from one side of the political spectrum.
- Econbrowser is more technical and data-oriented; more advanced readers will like this one.
- Economist’s View and Marginal Revolution provide in-depth articles applying economics to broad range of phenomena.
- RGE Monitor is the home of Nouriel Roubini and also aggregates articles from all over the Internet.
Of course, we would love to see you again here.
