    I was interested to hear if our members read business and world news stories online?

    If you do, what websites do you visit for your business and world news?

    Also, do you read or listen to business and world news offline?

    Thanks!

    Yes, I read business and world news stories online, often throughout the day. I look at a variety of sources, not each one every day. Some of the ones I check most often are CNN.com, nytimes.com, and ft.com. I also regularly follow links to news stories from sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Yahoo.

    I do read business and world news especially on our newspaper. For the site that I have been visting is GoNegosyo.net, a Philippines Center for Entrepreneurship. And gmanetwork.com for the latest economy forecast.

    Daily, online: WSJ, Financial Times ('cept on Saturday mornings there's no beating a crisp, fresh paper copy accompanied by a strong dark roast Starbucks ;) )

    Frequently but less than daily: CNBC and Fox Business.

    Beyond those broad-based sources there are a number of specific-focus news sites I visit regularly, which keep an eye on developments in macro econ, commodities, securitizations, private equity, debt markets, and derivatives.

    I'm a huge fan of podcasts. My favorite for daily news is marketplace. In my opinion it is by far the best for providing financial news. Online I use cnnmoney.com typically.

    I read and watch news daily ranging from the nations and world headlines, breaking news, weather, sports and business. Usually, CNN, Bloomberg, and other online news source are my favorite past times while working, and late tv news at home.

    Thanks everyone for your replies, good to see that our members are interested in business and world news stories. We had a "Current Affairs and Business News" section here on BAF some time ago. However, we removed it because it wasn't very popular. We may add a news section in the future.

    Podcasts are brilliant, because you can just leave them to run and listen to the bits that grab your attention.
    So they're very time effective and entertaining too :)

    Yes, I also read popular business publications, without them it is impossible to orient in the modern business world!
