|Atlanta Fed Research Director Introduces Economics Blog
Research staff at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is now producing macroblog, an economics blog that appears on the Atlanta Fed's Web site.
Macroblog offers commentary and observations on various economic topics of the day, including monetary policy, macroeconomic developments, financial issues, and Southeast economic trends. Posts so far, for example, have addressed what employment statistics say about the economy's health, the gross domestic product deflator, the complexities of measuring inflation, and the results of the federal government's economic stimulus package.
Bringing the blog to Atlanta
Macroblog will feature postings from Altig and other Atlanta Fed economists. "Macroblog will provide our Reserve Bank economists with another venue for publishing economic analysis but on a more timely basis," Altig said.
New posts twice weekly
The blog also contains a number of useful links, including government resources; a list of recent posts; archived posts categorized by month and topic; and user comments, which are moderated. Users may subscribe to macroblog via RSS feeds and e-mail.
