Recommended economics blogs

There are thousands of blogs out there covering all aspects of economics but here are a few I’ve found to be particularly interesting.

1. David Smith’s (visit here)

The Economics Editor of The Sunday Times David Smith’s personal website is great for insightful analysis of the macroeconomics of the UK.  Now that The Times online is behind a pay wall this site provides lengthy excerpts of his articles.

2. Stephanie Flanders’ Stephanomics (visit here)

The BBC’s economic’s editor can be seen regularly on our televisions but her blog goes into much greater depths and the comments section can be entertaining.

3. Paul Krugman’s The Conscience of a Liberal (visit here)

Winner of the 2008 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences Paul Krugman is mostly associated with the development of New Trade Theory in the late 70s and 80s.  He was a strong supporter of Gordon Brown following his reaction to the financial crisis.  His blog in the op-ed section of The New York Times is wide-ranging and often in debate.

4. Greg Mankiw’s Blog (visit here)

One of the most influential macroeconmists Greg Mankiw’s blog is aimed towards his Harvard students but can be just as informative for anyone interested in economics.
