Welcome, Visitor: here’s what you can do …

with this blog … (First time visitor? – Why not  start here!)

Whatever you do: before you leave, take at least one look at our

Data Visualisation References

with many mind-boggling applications of economic and statistical data.

If you have come here looking for sources of information, be it as a student (if at school, in high-school, college or university), home-schooling, a post-grad or post-doc, professor or just interested in economics, or an engineer who needs some facts about the markets he designs for, a marketer looking at market size, location or shares, an investor, a speculator or just curious … then maybe you want to start with our References containing hundreds of thousands information sources on statistics, economic or demographic indicators, monetary history, purchasing power comparisons across nations or across time, data visualisations, growing or waning populations or cultures, well if it isn’t yet there (take a tour) then leave a detailed enough comment and we might find it for you and add to the list –  equally if you know of something we should list, leave a comment, we (and I’m sure other users) are always grateful. Inclusion can take a few days depending on our workload and backlog, finding new things might take longer.

Other than that, have a look at our posts, either in general or follow our Bloom of Doom, Economic Musings or Economic Fallacies series. There are a few posts here that are of ongoing concern, such as “Blogs and Web Sites you may want to follow“.

More on this blog’s philosophy in About, in our Editorial Policy and our Copyright Statement etc.

Here are some of our upcoming projects: besides the references we will start a list of journals, newspapers, magazines and media, news agencies etc. that provide (also) economic news and data, equally a list of all market research and rating agencies, data providers, (larger) economic or financial advisors to the general public etc. And of course our Economics Study Guide, still in its fledgling state; it is not meant to supplant or replace any textbook, but again, due to its future wealth of hyperlinked annotations, to act as a springboard for any student to quickly get background information on an economic thought or concept, to jump to an opposing view, a critique, a bibliography or biography, a glossary of terms, or to find areas in economics that he or she would not find covered in the syllabus and therefore might otherwise never have heard of.

Then we soon hope to have a special article collecting all schools of economic thought with links to Internet sites with the works of their protagonists, preferably open source etc.

All posts and pages shall be copiously annotated, i.e. have Internet hyperlinks for almost every technical term or fact (see Editorial Policy). So, for example, if you have an assignment on the economic history of the 18th century, you should -in due course- be able to find an article here, not for copying (chances are anyways that your teachers also know this blog by then) but to peruse and follow the links that otherwise would have maybe cost you days to unearth (we know, because we did). And it might even pay to revisit older posts, because whenever we find an intriguing source (book, database or article) it will eventually become linked into an older post pertaining to that exact subject.

    Thank you, Chris Maven. This is brilliant work. I am really impressed.

    In Denmark for many years saving was considered foolish, making debts was considered the right thing to do – and rightly so. Those who bought a house in, say 1960, at DKr 200.000 could sell it at, say 2 mio. in 2000. In 1972 I bought a building site at DKr 37.000, could not use it and sold it 2 years later at DKr 74.000- tax-free! Many never owned more than 10% of their homes at the most. For in the meantime they mortgaged their homes to pay for their cars, travels etc. – whereas savings were “rewarded” with a petty interest rate which was even taxed by about 68% – whereupon inflation eroded the value of one´s savings enormously.

    Then came this damned crisis which precluded further mortgaging! Now we are being begged to save – although spending is needed. The problem is that we have no inflation to pay our luxurious way of living any more with – and what little people have at their disposal is swallowed by the highest tax burden of the world. This burden will increase even more now – for we are spending up to 30% of our state budget on Muslim immigration, reaping violence, hatred and enormous police expenditures in return, the police even leaving minor crimes like thefts and attacks in the streets uninvestigated. Maybe economically Denmark is the most communist country of the world

    I cannot help wondering if the boom was just as masterminded as the crash-landing!

    I have now added your blog to the blog roll of http://www.euro-med.dk

    I don’t appreciate you commenting on my blog to promote your blog. I have a mail link right at the top of my blog for such things as this. People like you make blogging very aggravating! I have no interest in even looking at your blog for this reason. You should have emailed me!

    • 2010-03-06 at 16:29

      I just sent you the following e-Mail:
      “Hello Sandra,

      please accept my apologies.

      In no way did I mean to “promote” my blog in the sense that you may feel I had. It is a not-for-profit blog and hasn’t even got advertising on it (not even possible with WORDPRESS free hosting).

      The references list mentioned is a bona fide collection of useful links and from reports I have received over the past ca. six weeks since it is live it seems to have proven a valuable resource for people looking for such material e.g. to do their assignments and esp. for those who are self- or home-educating.

      That’s the reason I tried to notify you and sorry I didn’t do it via the e-Mail link I overlooked.

      Kind regards
