How to get reliable background information
Many seem to have difficulties to understand what really happened and why it did happen. Even some of the top people in macro needed help to grasp what is currently going on. This website is set up to provide some information and some helpful links to get a better grasp of recent events.If you are keen on reliable up to date analysis, I recommend my favourite blog sites: Both do an amazingly good job providing useful and reliable high quality information. If you have more time, you may also follow: For reliable news and background information, the best media (unfortunately subscription is required for some part) are:
- The Economist
- Financial Times (FT)

There, you can also find excellent up to date contributions- just look at my comment "Beitrag zur Liquiditätskrise", FAZ vom 16.8.07
