Many AS students are now embarking on their macroeconomics course. I feel that building up a good awareness of what is actually happening in the UK and other economies is a great way of adding value and context to your assignments. There are many sources of useful articles, supporting evidence, comment and analysis pieces. I'll be putting quite a few of them together on this blog page and adding to it on a regular basis.
