In a post on the website, Reddit Economics’ CEO, David McCurdy, said the subreddit was an extension of the company’s business model.
The company has partnered with some of the best schools in the world to deliver their courses and content to Reddit’s users.
“There’s no other way to learn economics than Reddit,” McCurdy wrote.
“But the subreddit has become an invaluable resource for anyone who’s ever wanted to learn how to do something on the internet.”
He added that the Reddit economics community “takes seriously” the idea that Reddit is a “super-powerful, open platform”.
But Reddit’s decision to allow the subreddit to host its content on its site could prove problematic for some.
The site has been criticised for making its users feel like they’re in a virtual school, and for not providing enough information about the courses that are available on its platform.
Reddit recently shut down the business of the popular forum, Reddit, which it closed in January after a scandal involving user misconduct and a user who posted false information about a university in the US.
The subreddit is not currently available on Reddit, and a Reddit spokesperson said the company was working on “a policy update” to address this issue.
The decision to ban Reddit Economics is the latest in a string of controversies in which the company has been hit with controversy.
Earlier this month, Reddit banned a popular user known as “moderator-of-the-year”, after he posted offensive comments in a thread that included a link to a video that showed the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, discussing a “fraudulent tax”, and suggesting that a recent government shutdown in the country was a result of the country’s “economic catastrophe”.
He later deleted the post, saying he had “made mistakes”.
Last month, the company announced that it would be “making major changes” to the way it allows its users to interact with the site, including allowing them to “delete posts”.
It said in a statement that it wanted to ensure that users were “not forced to engage with content that they disagree with”.
“We will also be working on more detailed and targeted measures to combat the problem of abuse, including a system that will allow moderators to ban users for abusive behavior.”
