The 2018 INOMICS Awards
Now in their second year, the INOMICS Awards 2018 once again recognise the career and study opportunities offered by universities and institutions around the world, measuring their reputation and attraction for INOMICS users. This year, however, we are dividing up the awards into categories to showcase the different qualities we recognise as important for our users, to better help advise them with their academic careers and acknowledge different institutions with different strengths. Within those categories, we have awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes for their respective excellence within each category, along with a shortlist of runners-up we believe deserve special recognition. The six categories we have awarded are Top Employers, Best Training Course to Develop Your Skills, Best place to do a Master’s, Best conference to attend, Best place to do a PhD & Best Summer School. By awarding the top institutions and universities through these categories, as well as highlighting the runners-up, we can share a more insightful light on 2017’s most relevant institutions for INOMICS users.
To choose the winners of the 2018 INOMICS Awards, we measured the interest of the INOMICS audience in the job and career opportunities offered by each institution and listed on INOMICS. The criteria took into account how many people read about opportunities at each institution, and how many of these interact with them, based on page views and clicks out to the announcements of each nominee. The INOMICS team would like to commend all the institutions featured in each of our award categories, as well as hundreds of smaller institutions offering niche training opportunities and job offers, for their educational value and research contribution to the field of economics.

The Top Macroeconomics Books
If you’re currently in the throes of an undergrad degree in economics, or even if you’re just a layman looking to brush up on your macroeconomic knowledge, it’s essential you have the right literature to help you keep up to date. There are plenty of textbooks out there which purport to be the best way to get to grips with the discipline, but some are, naturally, better than others. On top of that, there are plenty of more popular economics books which deal with a specific topic in more detail.

How has the Economics Job Market Been Affected by the Coronavirus? - Salary Report Introduction
In 2020, INOMICS has once again carried out its salary survey, examining the state and health of the economics profession worldwide. As in previous years, the survey considered pay, sector, seniority, location, gender and educational background. Our 2020 survey was launched in the spring as cases of coronavirus began to increase exponentially around the world. Consequently, we added new questions related to the coronavirus pandemic to assess the effect of the crisis on economists and economics students.

How COVID-19 has Affected Economists in the Global North and South
The damage wrought by COVID, far from equalising, has been pointedly prejudiced. While the virus itself may struggle to differentiate between people, the world in which it operates has no such problem. Indeed, its structures have ensured COVID’s disruption of employment has fallen unevenly across regions - the experience of economists a case in point.
