Blog

Weekly suggestions and food for thought

The internet has gems to offer – and new ones are added by the day. The iconomix blog helps you keep abreast. Each week, we compile material for you from a great variety of sources and present it in this blog.

Besides such ‘gems’, our blog also features contributions that take an in-depth look at specific economic topics and provide relevant background and contextual information.

The blog is currently only available in German and French.

Hub

Are you looking for relevant sources on economics-related matters? The hub provides a choice selection of the most useful sources from beyond the world of iconomix, organised into news, multimedia and background information.

The links have been selected by the iconomix team and are regularly updated.

The hub is currently only available in German, French and Italian, however many of the links will take you to content in other languages.
