Our experiment in blogging began four years ago, when we launched Liberty Street Economics. Now, with more than 600 posts published, the blog platform has become a central way for us to share our research with a wide audience. To further expand access to the blog, we’re excited to bring readers a new option for keeping up with our work—the Economic Research Tracker for Apple iPad.
This easy-to-use app, which is available for free download in the App Store ®, contains the full catalogue of Liberty Street Economics blog posts, as well as access to our economists’ profiles, which provide more detail about their research interests and publications. The Economic Research Tracker is also customizable, allowing users to filter blog posts by topic—such as housing, labor economics, monetary policy, and regional analysis—or by author. Finally, the app is also usable offline, so readers can access content after disconnecting from the internet, for example, when they are commuting.

Looking ahead, we will continue to expand the app’s function and content. Our sixty-plus Ph.D. economists are a prolific group, with intriguing and influential thinking to share. So, we invite you to use the app to explore bylines and topics of interest.

While the app is only available on iPad at this time, we will continue to expand the app’s function and content going forward. For Android and other users, please continue to read the blog online.
When will the app be available for Android OS?
