The Indian Economy Blog

Ask And Ye Shall Receive…

An answer, that is.

Discovered two very cool sites.

Dr Econ from the the Federal Reserve Bank of San Fransico (one of the regional Feds that makes up the Federal Reserve in the US) and

Personal Financial Education from the Fed system as well.

Q) Are there any sites like this in India? My guess is that the demand should be tremendous, especially given the twaddle that passes for economics in our colleges.

Update: On the blog front, the only economics/ finance bloggers that I know of are Atanu Dey, Ajay Shah and J. R Varma (all on our blogroll). Any other recommendations?

  1. We have just kicked off a site on personal finance for an Indian audience. It is http://personalfinance201.com

    I’m embarrassed to be pimping my own site but since it is just a hobby ( moonlight effort, with no ads), I thought it’s ok to share.

  6. The following take might be harsh but I mean to be constructive:
    This blog is also pretty substandard for a blog claiming to be about the Indian economy. It is more about political analysis than economics. There are no discussions centering around monetary policy, no discussion of economic indicators and such other things usual with economic discussions. I don’t even see any charts which so many economists love to flog.

    Some of the Indian economics blogs that have been mentioned are finance blogs or investing blogs. Their focus is vastly different from pure economic analysis for policy making.

    It would be worthwhile to try and get some good trained economists who focus on the Indian economy to take lead in this blog.
