I was wondering if there is a viable place on Stack Exchange to ask economics-related questions. Questions I'd have in particular could be equation-based or theoretical. I suppose the equation-based questions could possibly fit into mathematics but I haven't checked their FAQ.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Update: Economics is back!. For pure economic theory and its implication, that is the site to go to.
That said, there are other sites to consider, as my previous answer showed.
While Economics Stack Exchange is, alas, no more, there is some overlap with existing proposals.
NOTE: Politics is particularly friendly towards macroeconomic questions
Beyond that, as stated, Area 51 occasionally has Social Sciences and economic SE proposals, but the critical mass rarely seems to gather to tip them over the edge.
There seem to be two new related proposals, Economics and Finance & Economics that may be worth following. From the current sites, Mathematics and Personal Finance and Money may be close to what you are looking for, depending on what your actual question is, but please make sure to read their FAQs and search for similar questions before asking.
There is now a new Economics.SE beta which you can access at https://economics.stackexchange.com/.
