Here are a few interesting sites.
Blogs about Economics abound on the web these days. A different approach that’s starting to appear is podcasts.
The Technology, Entertainment, and Design conference is held every year. While all the talks are very interesting, several for economics students I would recommend are:
- Dan Ariely on Behavioral Economics
- Lawrence Lessig on creativity and the law
- Steve Levitt on drug dealers
- Hans Rosling on global data about health, income, and poverty
- Hans Rosling is even better the second time around in 2007 You can see the data visualizations that Hans Rosling presented at: www.gapminder.org
Google Talks is also an interesting source of presentations by authors and other notable individuals. While many of the talks are very interesting, here are some I would recommend for economics students:
- Robert Frank speaks about his book The Economic Naturalist
- Richard Thaler speaks about his book Nudge
- Dan Ariely speaks about his book Predictably Irrational
- Garr Reynolds on presentation styles. You can find his Presentation Zen site here.
