Econintersect: Just two years old last month, Global Economic Intersection (GEI) has been named one of the Top 100 Sites for Enlightened Economists. The list was compiled by Economics Degree, a web site that provides information for students about the field of economics. Economics Degree provides a guide to more than 110 accredited college and university programs offering degrees in economics and related fields. The site also provides a summary of career options open to those who earn an economics degree and information about the range of salaries that can be earned in the field.
GEI was one of 14 websites listed in the section for Global Economics. The general description of selection criteria and the objectives in compiling the list from Economics Degree:
Economics has been defined as the “social science that analyzes the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.” Truthfully, though, economics is much more than that – it’s the backbone of the entire modern world and drives everything from business to technology, from healthcare to education.
Anyone interested in this diverse field should do more than simply read books on the subject. Staying updated with current theories, ideas, trends, and news both in the United States and abroad is critical to being successful as a student and professional economist. The best way to do that is through the web.
EconomicsDegree.Net compiled the following sites, which are 100 of the best sites in the field. Listed in no specific order, these sites are a must-see for anyone who wants to be considered a quality, “enlightened” economist. Sites were selected based on a variety of factors including readership size, update frequency, information quality, and other awards received.
Econintersect will be using this list as a resource for review of the “economics blogosphere”. There are many sites on the list which we read regularly but some are new to us.
