Unhappy Need some resources regarding current state of online economy

I am writing a paper for my Macroeconomics course and have decided to write about the current state of the online economy with a focus on online advertising.

I have seen a couple of posts to different articles on ezines regarding this subject. Like I seem to remember one at bcentral.

<shameless plug> Hmm... maybe I should check out http://www.essaysfree.com ... </shameless plug>

But seriously, if you know of any online articles that would help me out in my research I'd really appreciate it, thanks.

Try:
eMarketer.com
clickz.com
theStandard.com
internet.com
cyberatlas.com

There is a pile of information on the internet to sort through. Public companies post their earnings report once per quarter. Crunch the numbers and you will get a good idea of the state of the economy.

Cheers,

jkcity, thanks for the plug http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

Steve, it's always great going back to that thread. Just thinking about what that April 2000 represents is enough to keep one grounded.

The online economic climate back then seemed a bit like the weather reports that are shown while you're on holidays. That is, you may hear warnings about heavy winds and downpours for days, but when you look out the window of your yacht, all you can see is blue sky. So, the next day, you think "carpe diem" and jump on a sailboard to join the other revelers in their leisurely fun - only to sail into the eye of a tropical cyclone.

It seems no matter how many times people are warned, there's always something compelling enough about the possibility of reaping financial rewards that encourages people on - only to slap them in the face when they fail to keep an open mind (and open eyes).

Of course, the best thing about failures is that we can all learn from them, and move on to bigger and better things. That's why we bothered to listen during history classes at school, isn't it? There must have been some reason. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

Ok, one more quick thing I'd like to add to my paper before I wrap it up. What I need is some sort of resource(s) (so I can cite them on my paper) that states the old average CPM rates of 1999 (like $20 CPM or thereabouts) and then a resource that states the current average CPM rates (like $0.50 or thereabouts)

If anyone could point me to a "reliable" source I'd be very thankful. Or maybe you could whip up a page for me! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif I'd feel too guilty if I made a "resource" and then cited it, although it is tempting. HaHa

Yes, I find that history keeps repeating itself. I find it even funnier, when I think of things said here in the forum, that a year or so later seem so much like deja vu all over again!

I just did my "advertising 101" sermon on another thread here at geek talk, relating to some "old school" advertising thoughts and how they relate to today.

In the past thread that Steve pointed to, hmm rather eerie that etoys be mentioned.

Who would have thought me crazy a year ago if I told you that amazon.com or yahoo.com would not exist as we knew them in the not too distant future?

Another thing mentioned in that thread, was a discussion of price/earnings ratios. Who
would have said I was crazy a year ago when I told you Yahoo would crash? (It went from $200 a share to closing yesterday at $17)

Who would have believed me if I would have said that priceline.com was just a short lived fad, based on ones that come and go in the business world on a regular basis?
(It went from over $100 a share to closing yesterday at $2)

Who's next? Amazon.com??? (Not quite so bad, hit a high of $75 a share, now at $12).

I consider myself a risk taker, but I'm no fool either, (I hope). There's a lot to be learned, and earned, from the internet. I'm just not ready to bet the farm on it!

BTW, hobbnet, sounds like a good article, I'd love to see the finished product.

Ack, I was afraid someone was going to ask to see the paper. I am a business management econonomics major here at UCSC so as you can imagine I don't write many papers anymore. I threw together this 5 page paper and I really was not happy with it (although it was my first paper for the ENTIRE school year to date). I am hesitant to post the essay here due to embarassment but if you want to read it I would have no problem emailing it to you.

Just tell me and I'll send it your way.
