Finding common, reputable sources of economic analysis

These scripts look for the most common web domains recommended in daily links by two popular economic blogs: Tyler Cowen's Marginal Revolution and Mark Thoma's Economist's View

Overview

The scripts require a Bing web search API key. API.py contains a function for accessing the API.

The scripts should be run in the following order: 1. get_recs.py 2. rec_cleanup.py 3/4. MR_parser.py 3/4. EV_parser.py 5. analysis.py

The files Recs_from_EV and Recs_from_MR contain URLs recommended by the two sites.

Analysis.py outputs common domains. For more, see my blog:
