"A surprisingly good aggregator." Brad DeLong, Grasping Reality
"I not only visit the site every day (or more), I use it every day, and there are no more than half a dozen aggregator sites where I would say that." Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution
MacroDigest aggregates essential economic commentary, analysis and news from around the web. We use a proprietary algorithm to cluster content on systemically important topics (e.g., Brexit, negative interest rates). Our human curators work to highlight the most insightful reading material on the MacroDigest website and Twitter.
The idea for MacroDigest came to Garrick while he was a PhD student trying (and failing) to stay on top of the deluge of economic news and debate with a RSS reader, Twitter, etc.
After bootstrapping a prototype, MacroDigest won the London School of Economics Entrepreneur of the Year Award and received some project funding from LSE Learning Technology and Innovation and the Centre for Macroeconomics.
MacroDigest has received praise from some of the most influential economists, but it is still very much a project-in-progress. We are always looking for people who share our passion about making economics more accessible. If you’re interested in getting involved please get in touch by email.
