Blog for Econ Students

This is the first econ blog which is oriented towards principle level students in Economics. I hope it will make learning economics a fun thing. Aplia is the brain child of our very own Economist Paul Romer. The way he talks about New Growth Ideas--Same way he is incorporating new features in to Aplia--a student focused learning-testing-evaluation resource.
News for Econ Students: "Welcome to Aplia's economic news blog, a place to explore current events that relate to your econ classes. "
A few months ago hiring bloggers for academic positions was considered a no! no! in conservative schools: Bloggers need not apply. At some universities bloggers have been in trouble while others have earned better places in acadmia. However, ideas like this will open doors for academic blogging. I already knew about History academic blogging at George Mason University. In economics it will be a exciting new thing.
