Focus Economics – Top Economics & Finance Blogs of 2017

Focus Economics, a global economics analysis firm publishes its list of top economics and finance blogs for 2017.

It is wonderful to see Mostly Economics featuring in the list. Thanks once again to all the visitors for carrying the word forward.

As 2017 kicks off, we’ve put together a list of 101 economics and finance blogs that you might want to add to your RSS feeds and browser’s bookmarks this year, if you haven’t already. The list was compiled by the FocusEconomics Insights Blog with the help of the FocusEconomics team of economists. The criteria for inclusion in the list was simply that they had to have regularly blogged in 2016 and that they needed to be English-language blogs. In the future we hope to be able to compile a list of foreign-language blogs.

In this list, there are economics blogs from the Keynsian school to the Chicago school to the Austrian school and everything in between. We’ve included blogs on microeconomics, macroeconomics, health economics, sports economics and even water economics. Politics and public policy are common themes in many of these blogs as the impact of politics and policy plays an important role in economics of all kinds. Let’s also not forget the intersection between economics and finance. There are some purely finance and investment related blogs in this list as well as blogs that do a bit of it all.

As you read through this list, you may be asking where all of the big established media blogs are. Where are Krugman, the Economist blogs and the WSJ’s Real Time Economics? Although, we do recommend you read some of those blogs, with this list we tried to put together an eclectic mix of blogs from individuals and institutions that you may not have heard of. We believe this list should provide a wealth of choices, presenting perspectives from different ends of the economics and finance blogosphere. It is important not to get stuck in an echo chamber, listening and reading the same things over and over again without understanding other perspectives. Therefore, some of the blogs on this list are contrarian in nature and even in some cases highly controversial. We don’t necessarily endorse all of the bloggers’s viewpoints, however we do acknowledge that there are two sides (or more) to every coin.

With that said, we can dive into FocusEconomics’ Top Economics and Finance Blogs of 2017 listed in no particular order (actually they are listed in alphabetical order, but just because it seemed easier). Be sure to scroll down and have a look at all of the blogs. If you’re short on time, each blog has a bolded section with the “Focus topics” listed underneath the write-up that should help to identify what each blog is generally about quickly and easily. 

Humbled and thrilled.

2016 and 2017 have been great for Mostly Economics blog. It featured in top 100 of two other rankings – Intelligent Economist and Feedspot.
