Economics - Stack Exchange is closing. They have until May 4 to migrate questions. There's a meta discussion of the migration process on economics.se.

I went through their questions and found 9 (out of about 400) that would broadly be appropriate for our site. In general, there aren't that many questions, but I think there are enough that would be suited. I also think that in the interest of preserving the efforts of fellow Stack Exchange users, a little liberty could be taken in determining what is in scope. I put in 9 migration requests. Assuming they are accepted, then there might be a little tag tidying to follow.

Let me know if there are any particular objections or concerns.

Here are the questions that have been migrated here:

  • Awesome, thank you for taking the time to do that Jeromy!

    I flagged two of the questions that, in my opinion, did not seem to fit into cognitive science.

    I have finished adding tags to the questions I could figure out how to sort of tag. I would appreciate more discussion next time. Commented May 1, 2012 at 14:38

  • Hi Artem. My apologies for being a bit quick to migrate without discussion. I was worried that the closing date was only a few days away, and I didn't think I'd have time to go through the questions on the econ.se at another time in the next few days. I hoped we could sort out some of the issues when the questions arrived. And thank you for listing the questions here. Commented May 1, 2012 at 23:51

1 Answer 1


How should we handle the answers to the questions which are migrated here, but which clearly have an economics slant to it?

This one is a relatively good question: What is a good book for studying incentives?

The top rated/accepted answer has a clear economics perspective, while I feel other answers would be more suitable for this site, e.g. the least up voted one.

    I see this issue as well. A few thoughts: (1) upvote good answers that fit better with the tone of this site; (2) add new answers; (3) downvote answers that are in a general sense poor. (4) Tidy up questions through editing. (5) post bounties seeking a more psychological / cognitive science answer. And in general, the questions will fade off the front page.
