An improved Economy Lab page for Globe Unlimited subscribers

As The Globe and Mail charges forward into the expanding digital universe, we've redesigned the Economy Lab blog for Globe Unlimited subscribers. The first thing you'll notice is the row of leading indicators at the top of the page. If you're like me, you spend too much time searching for current stats and usually do a broad Web search to find them. Now, we both can find it all in one spot. Check the value of the loonie, keep an eye on inflation and find other key data in one place.

We've also added filters so that you can search Economy Lab for specific writers or topics. This feature will soon be available on your Dashboard.

The Dashboard is an evolving tool that lets you follow specific companies, get breaking news alerts, and save stories for later reading. Learn more about the Dashboard here.

The online universe is awash in economic indicators. Every day, they're stretched, spun and sorted. For two years, Economy Lab has made sense of it all, with the best roster of analysts and thinkers in Canada. From budgets to health care to old age security, Economy Lab has been at the front of the policy debates that affect Canadians now and will shape the country's future. Along the way, we've managed to be recognized as one of the best business blogs in the world, winning an 'Eppy' in 2011 and earning a 'Webby' Honoree nod in 2012.
