Where do critical development economists publish their articles and blog posts? Where can you read critical research on development economics? What kind of textbooks do critical development economists teach from? Here is a preliminary list of journals, blogs, and textbooks (but please send any additions you might have!).
I recently read Claudia Sahm’s piece on why there are very few female economists in the blogosphere. As a blogger herself, as someone who is active on Twitter, and as a follower of approximately eighty blogs, she states with no hesitation: “It’s true, very few female economists blog. Period.” For her, three hypotheses may explain this absence: women with opinions are not well received, women are busy with other forms of service, and women underestimate what they would contribute by blogging. But aren’t these actually manifestations of a deeper issue?
