Economic Data for Free? Yes, Please.

I confess. I’m a sucker for free stuff. More specifically, I like finding credible, well-respected information freely available online. So when the World Bank announced that they were opening up their statistical resources for free, you can imagine that I’m pretty excited.

Why is this awesome? The World Bank has collected tons of data in the past about the countries of the world over the years. The international development group published the statistics in series like World Development Indicators, Global Development Finance and more, providing users to economic indicators for nearly all countries. And now, it’s all online for FREE.

Check it out at the World Bank Data website.
