70 Words on the Economy. Daily.

In December 2010, Elliot began writing a daily 70-word blog on the economy – hence the website’s name. As a personal challenge, he decided to take a current economic concept or issue and explain the topic in 70 words or fewer – not an easy thing to do. He writes and posts a blog every weekday except holidays and has written nearly 3,000 blogs, many of which are showcased here. Friday’s blog is always “The Friday File,” which is intentionally fun and lighthearted going into the weekend.

Elliot’s blog is delivered daily to the inboxes of more than 25,000 people. You can subscribe to receive Elliot’s daily blog by clicking on the “SUBSCRIBE” button below.
