Whether you’re a would-be Economist or have spent decades being one. You could be worse-off than to read the short biographies of Economists who’ve been through the journey before.
So we’ve compiled a list from top Economists. It’s a list of influential people at effectively marketing businesses and being pro-active, particularly in the social media sphere.
Our Economists list is an automatic algorithm based on social media influence, Klout scores and a secret recipe.
We take into account various metrics from Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube, LinkedIn and Instagram. The list gets updated each Monday. If you believe you fit the criteria (or you know a leader who does), you can add yourself by clicking the “join” button. All entries are considered by our admins, and Richtopia reserves the right to accept or forbid people from the list as it deems fit.
Follow these Economists to keep up with trends. You will also learn what resources they use to stay in the know.
