World Economics - Measuring Global Economic Activity


About World Economics

World Economics - background
World Economics is an organisation dedicated to producing analysis, insight and data relating to questions of importance in understanding the world economy.

Currently our primary research objective is to encourage and assist the development of better and faster measures of economic activity. In cases where we believe we can contribute directly, as opposed to through highlighting the work of others, we are producing our own measures of economic activity.

Our work is mainly of interest to investors, organisations and individuals in the financial sector and to significant corporations with global operations, as well as governments and academic economists



World Economics Journal
Our first product, World Economics Journal, has over the past decade, carried the writings of many of the world's leading economists and its credentials are further demonstrated by the high calibre line up of its Editorial Board.

Unlike the majority of economic journals, our distinguishing characteristic has been an insistence on authors writing in an easily compressible style, without jargon or  mathematics, allowing a very wide readership to benefit from the thoughts of our eminent authors. We make available to policy makers the results of advanced economic research without the need for translation from the mathematical forms of output so beloved of the modern day academic economist.



World Economics Database
A website has been used for many years to augment the distribution of the Journal, and to carry papers to supplement the limited capacity of the printed version. But we are now launching a much more ambitious version of the website, which will not only speed up the dissemination of the ideas of our contributors, but also act as a home for our own datasets, designed to help policy makers, investors and businesses generally  make more sense of the economic environment.

We shall be launching a set of products over the coming months that include the new World Price Index, and Global Demand Indexes.
