Relevant sources now?

"I'm trying to make sense of all this financial fiasco from economics perspectives. I read blogs. But now there are way too many people talking about anything out there. Suggestion?"

"Don't read them all. Just check regularly those of Mankiw, Krugman, Arnold Kling (of EconLog -- in the meantime, just skip Bryan Caplan), Econbrowser (both Hamilton and Chinn)"

"What about magazines, newspapers?"

"New York Times. Don't miss Leonhardt. And of course The Economist".

"I'm not a professional economist. But if I were to read academic papers, what do you suggest?

"Ben Bernanke's papers in early 80s"


"Bernanke's Essays on the Great Depression"

"As for Indonesian context?"

"The two Basris: Chatib and Faisal"
