Now on Your iPhone: The Economic Research Tracker

LSE_Now on Your iPhone: The Economic Research Tracker

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York today announced the launch of its Economic Research Tracker app for the iPhone®. The app, which highlights the insights and analysis of New York Fed economists, was first introduced last year for the iPad®. Today’s launch makes the app even more accessible to readers.

This easy-to-use app, which is free to 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 details 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. The app can also be used offline, so readers can view content after disconnecting from the Internet—for example, when they are commuting.

Offering easy access to the more than 775 blog posts already published on Liberty Street Economics and the profiles of sixty-plus Ph.D. economists with a wealth of new insights to share, the app is an ideal way to delve into key areas of interest from any location.

As we continue to bolster its content and capabilities, we encourage you to download the app today.
