20) Recursos para economistas (em inglês...)
Existem milhares, talvez zilhões de recursos para economistas na Internet, entre elas vários blogs de valor inestimável. A própria abundância de fontes e a pletora de materiais de valor desmentem os próprios fundamentos da teoria econômica, como a ciência da "escassez", e sobretudo o mais famoso motto econômico dessa arte: there is no free lunch in economy. Neste caso, existe sim, e dá para fazer café, almoço e jantar sem pagar literalmente nada, só tempo, que como diria Benjamin Franklin, também é dinheiro...
Selecionei alguns que me pareceram mais úteis a partir deste link: http://www.oswego.edu/~economic/econweb.htm, que pertence ao Economic Resources for Economists.
