General Economics Information Sites

The first section includes Bill Goffe's current hypertext guide with links to economic information on the Internet, plus a number of the major sites for economics information and data.

Resources for Economists on the Internet by Goffe
    Bill Goffe's current hypertext guide has links to all known economic information on the Internet. To use this guide, click on the site or type of information you want. The first click takes you to a section of the Goffe document that describes this site. Within or following his description, there is a link to the site itself. Thus you can go to any economics location from the Goffe pages. Goffe also describes the economics listserv discussion groups on the Internet (PolEcon, Femecon, Tch-econ, Econ-ed, etc.), along with the addresses to join. (Listservs are e-mail discussion groups that require signing on with an e-mail address to participate.)
