The economics zeitgeist, 21 June 2009

This is a word cloud from all economics blog postings in the last week. I generate this every Sunday so please subscribe using the links on the right if you'd like to be notified each time it is published.

It has been constructed from a list of economics RSS feeds from the Palgrave Econolog and other sources, and uses Wordle to generate the image, the ROME RSS reader to download the RSS feeds, and Java software from Inon to process the data.

You can also see the Java version in the Wordle gallery. The millionth Wordle is coming up in about two weeks, so look out for that.

If anyone would like a copy of the underlying data used to generate these clouds, or if you would like to see a version with consistent colour and typeface to make week-to-week comparison easier, please get in touch.

Sorry: Last week's analysis never happened. I will include a summary in this week's analysis of the moves and trends coming soon. For now, I'll simply mention the following:


However please note that this week's results were provided to us by the Iranian Interior Ministry and Mousavi may be ahead if we are allowed a recount.
