The Amateur Economist reviews Rhodia Webnotebook



A Rhodia booster alerted us to a review of the Rhodia Webnotebook. It’s by Chris, a Ron Paul supporter, a martial arts aficionado and the man behind The Amateur Economist. From the latest G8 Summit to the federal subsidy program, from pre-fabricated house designs to pencils, our Rhodia reviewer has something noteworthy to say. Here’s his recent review of the newly-minted Rhodia Webnotebook:

I was VERY glad to get the Rhodia Large Webnotebook in my hands last week, and I can’t reveal my sources. I understand that as of now these are not yet formally available in the U.S. ;-)
(Be sure to see some of the good pics at the official Rhodia Webnotebook site.)

The catalyst for this review was the fine work and review of the Rhodia Webnotebook at Black Cover. I agree, the name is rather awkward.

The first thing that struck me was the material of the cover. Whereas the Moleskine material is like oilcloth or something similar, the Webnotebook almost feels somewhat ‘rubbery’ for lack of a better word. I wouldn’t have guessed that I would like that, but I really do. Rhodia describes the cover material as ‘leatherette.’ The notebook also has an integrated cloth bookmark and elastic band. It’s lined/ruled which I prefer, instead of blank or quadrille.


Thanks Chris for the review! We look forward to your many constructive opinions about Rhodia, and your next analysis of the economic policy of Barack Obama and John McCain.
