Resources

Some core parts of academia are not explicitly taught. The expectation is that academics learn these things "along the way". However, many of us lack resources and opportunities for this type of learning. For other core aspects of our work such as econometrics there are some fantastic resources online that do not appear to be common knowledge yet. Thus, here is a compilation of resources that have helped me or that I think could be helpful. Please email me if you discover that a link is broken, some credit is missing or wrong or most of all if I am missing the best resource you know.
