Global Econ now Paid Subscription
I wanted to take a minute to explain to everyone that Global Econ has moved to being a paid monthly subscription. I chose $5/month because that seems to be the typical rate and I think I can provide $5 of value each month for sure. Basically it’s one cappuccino a month. And I made the annual subscription cheaper at $50/year.
For now, I will be aiming for weekly posts but that should slowly grow over the coming months.
I’ll write deeper pieces of special interest to me and often inspired by Q&A. For now many of those will focus on monetary policy and how modern monetary systems work. But it will evolve to other topics too (probably government finances and implications as a topic soon).
I think people under appreciate global economic issues so I’ll begin tracking some regions and writing regularly about them. For now: USA, Developed Economies (Canada, UK, Europe, Japan) and Emerging Markets (Latin America, Africa, Asia). That list will get more focused and refined. Initial topics are things like what inflation is doing in other parts of the world and why and how does it differ from the US, what the USD exchange rate to other currencies is doing and why, what other central banks are doing and what we should watch for, and so on.
As I develop all that, I’ll test out some topics/categories like the Q&A and I think “Money Matters” which will focus more on central bank and monetary policy. That’s a play off the title of an old Milton Friedman book (google it :-).
For now, thank you again for your interest. I look forward to your feedback and suggestions.
