There’s nothing like a new construction project to create jobs and boost the economy!
We’ve been hard at work redesigning EconStories.tv from the ground up so that it can be an easier to navigate, richer, more mobile-friendly experience. The new EconStories will support an all new EconStore and make it easier to find each video’s transcript, downloads, and other related content. The new “responsive” design will keep the site looking right-sized and working smoothly on your desktop, your tablet and your mobile phone.
Just (barely) in time for the holiday spending season, we’re pleased to announce the launch of our all new EconStore. You’ll find a set of fun, high-quality EconStories branded t-shirts and merchandise designed by our fans through a design contest we conducted this past summer. The proceeds from EconStore sales go directly into funding new EconStories video projects.
No gift says you care quite like a t-shirt featuring your favorite dead economists. So give aggregate demand a little helping hand and check out the EconStore.
We are excited to announce the EconStories T-Shirt design contest!

EconStories and Emergent Order are proud to announce “The Fight of the Century,” a music video film shoot taking place at the Drew University campus in Madison, New Jersey, on April 16 and 17, 2011. We are looking for fans to join us in this film shoot as extras.
