Teaching the financial crisis with blogs

A spring 2009 liberal arts economics class used blogs as a platform for studying the current economic crisis.  Econ 482: International Finance (taught by Stephen Greenlaw, University of Mary Washington) researched the great recession as it occurred, using the blog to combine current events with academic content.

The site now appears as a resource for the general student of the crisis.  It is divided into sections, including an overview, executive summary, timeline, and references.
