|economicsperiscope.com||Leitmotif of the website's name|
This website, started around 2011, is mainly meant to provide a strictly chronological list of my publications, with just a few missing. Teaching material, drawing heavily upon my publications, is posted on financialmacroecomomics.com started in 2019. Most viewers would be interested, if at all, in the latest articles. This ‘recency’ bias is understandable; many chronological lists start from the latest. I prefer not to do that.
Given the nature of macroeconomics, and I suspect many other subjects too, forward listing incorporates the analysis of events in real time. However, since the list is way too long (over 120 entries as of 2021) I have compressed it to only the first few, the important ones in between, and the latest. The full list of my articles can be downloaded by clicking on that weblink. I have bolded the more important ones. From that list, both the bolded and unbolded articles are available by googling for them or else mailing me.( Phone and further contact details upon request). Comments and responses about the website ease of navigation and, of course, the articles and entries, are welcome. This note was written on Oct 2021.
