The present times, I think, are an excellent time to be a student of Economics, with so much happening in the real world. So much of unexpected fluctuation, so many theories doing the rounds – sometimes I wish I had some Economics background.
Of course, that’s just a wish. Meanwhile, I make do with, among other sources of information, this economics blog, maintained by two Professors of Economics at the George Mason University. If you have an interest, go read: it’s excellent.
