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.

    @MartinVanderLinden are you creating an infinite loop?

  • In a sense, yes, I guess, sorry about that. I was not sure how to flag the three post which look like duplicate to me. I guess marking two of them as duplicate of the post I thought was best would have been the way to go? Dec 5, 2014 at 22:05

    @MartinVanderLinden I'm just messing with you. It seems valid, although mine is older, they seem to have significant answers on both

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.


Unfortunately, Economics Stack Exchange didn't have enough activity during its beta phase and it was closed. You can download the data dump of all its questions from its Area51 proposal page.

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.

  • shoot, is there a suitable place related questions could be asked?

There is now a new Economics.SE beta which you can access at https://economics.stackexchange.com/.

You must log in to answer this question.
