“Where is the General Theory of the 21st Century?” needs your support
EconReporter is an independent journalism project based in Hong Kong. Our mission is to develop a high-quality economics news analytic narrative which helps to broaden the coverage of economic news in Hong Kong mainstream media and to lead economics students in Hong Kong to learn more top-notch economics from the experts.
Established since 2014 our reporters, in cooperation with several media outlets in Hong Kong, have interviewed many elite economists and introduced new economics ideas to the general public. Among others, our reporters have previously interviewed Olivier Blanchard, John Cochrane, Ricardo Reis. Those interviews can be found here.
Where is the General Theory of the 21st Century?
We are developing a side project, an interview series called “Where is the General Theory of 21st Century?”.
The mission of the series is to talk to elite economists and ask them what is their views on the evolutions of macroeconomics since the Great Recession. We would introduce some of the new macroeconomics ideas which top economists are pondering in the last ten years. Hopefully, this should give us a good survey on how much macroeconomics, as a science, as the basis of policy tools, has improved (or worsened) since 2008.
We are now publishing one interview every two months but we are working to improve it much further. Our target is to publish new interviews bi-weekly. As you can guess, one of the major issues we are facing is that we are tight on funding and resources.
To achieve our goal, we need your support
We hope readers like you, who loves to read more quality interviews and reports on the latest development in macroeconomics, to support the development of “Where is the General Theory of the 21st Century?” interview series.
We sincerely hope that you can consider making a small donation to fund our project. Just $10 a year from every reader would be enough for us to continue our operations for more than a year.
Please support us. Your contribution is crucial for the continuation of the series.
