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 have been through the journey before.
So we’ve compiled a list consisting of the top 100 economists.
Here’s what some of them said about this list:
Our economists’ list gets updated annually and is based uniquely on digital influence, not on net-worth, favouritism, or some other indicator.
Many incredible economists are not active online, and as much as it would have been an absolute pleasure to include them, this is a list of people who influence through the web, with a click of a button, even if it means Tweeting at 2 am.
Notwithstanding, there will be many newcomers in 2021, considering this list gets ever more competitive with each new release, and these digitally influential economists are setting the pace.
Also, our approach improves every time, including the addition of current metrics and changes to scale up the accuracy; the groundwork for this year’s research is available toaccess via Google Sheets.
If there are any economists you believe we have missed, you can nominate them for next year by contacting us.
Follow these economists to keep up with trends and get informed. You will also learn which resources they use to stay in the know.

How this list gets put together
The Richtopia economists list gets compiled over months of journalistic research using several metrics combined to produce a final rank.
Some of the leading indicators on an individuals score are their social media followers, engagement, overall news coverage, monthly name searches on Google, LinkedIn followers, and digital presence, to name a few.
