This guide has been created in order to assist students in their investigation and research in the field of Economics. It is not meant to be all inclusive, but rather a selection of topics, issues, researchers and thinkers, books, online resources and social media to pique interest in Economics and act as a road map as to where further resources can be found.
This guide was created by Nadine Bailey between November 2013 and June 2015.
