Economics is a domain that will require expert knowledge. Do we have any professional or academic economists here?

    From the questions posed, im guessing there are some. The site should be able to to attact a number of people the highly qualifiend people that are are active on math.stackexchange.com. There you can find lots of questions that could easily belong to this site. – Thorst May 22 '14 at 13:13

    I know at least 3-4 grad students (including myself) that are here. I like to think we are experts, or at least on our way to becoming experts. I have been trying to spread the word to get others to come as well. – cc7768 May 22 '14 at 14:36

    Based on my participation on stackoverflow, I think the knowledge required from the average user to facilitate a worthwhile site is much less than the knowledge required to be an expert in a field. Often an individual will be an expert in one very small aspect of a field, but with enough breadth of user knowledge, the stackexchange can function quite well. This seems particularly true of economics. – lilster Jul 28 '14 at 12:39
  • It's difficult to draw the line that establishes someone as an 'expert'. I hold a BA and a MA degree in economics, but I do not consider myself one by far. I believe lilster's answer is on the right direction. Nevertheless, I'm trying to involve more people from my masters class to join here. – han-tyumi Aug 15 '14 at 14:20
