American Economic Association
It lists more than 2,000 resources in 97 sections and sub-sections available on
the Internet of interest to academic and practicing economists, and those
interested in economics. Almost all resources are also described.
In selecting resources for RFE, I exercise some editorial judgment and
select items that either offer a substantial amount of information,
or are specialized to a given area.
Those searching the Internet for economic information might also wish
to try the Economics Search Engine (ESE)
It indexes 23,000 economics web sites from around the world. Searches with it
only return their contents.
The Complete Table of Contents
is for those
who want a list of all resources in this guide. From there you can go
to a resource quickly -- simply click on its name. A link to an extended
description here in RFE is denoted by "details..."
As the Complete Table of Contents is quite large, there is also an
Abridged Table of Contents
that just lists RFE's
sections and sub-sections. One can also search
all parts of this guide.
You can also navigate this guide by starting with the main sections
listed above on this title page. There, you can (i) move directly to
the resource (again, by clicking on the title), (ii) read a short
description of many resources in that section, (iii) click to an extended
description by following the [details
] links, or (iv) click to a
"deeper" sub-section and where these same navigation conventions apply).
I would like to thank two people in particular for constant help with
this guide. The first is Bob Parks of Washington University in St. Louis.
He ran the most widely used web site for RFE and over the years he helped
in many, many other ways. Second I would like to thank
for his programming behind this site. He is highly recommended for PHP
and MySQL coding.
