    Hi there!

    I haven't been really catching up with the economy and politics and business news in the past year or two and I really want to get into a good habit of reading the news daily or as often as I can. But it sometimes is really difficult reading articles off of business websites such as The Economist or BusinessWeek. Is there a website for simple business news but still capturing all the details? I am a freshman economics major and just felt this would be important / applicable to what I will be learning.

    Thanks

    Titus

    Hi Titus, what country are you based in?

    Like you I haven't been keeping up to date with business news over the last year or so and I'm beginning to take an interest in it again. The main reason I haven't paid as much attention to it for the last while is that the business and economic news seemed to be all bad recently and it didn't exactly cheer me up to hear or read it.

    Depending on where you are located there are some great business news programmes on TV and radio, and newspapers are another great source of business news.

    The links below might also be of interest to you;

    Yahoo Business
    Yahoo Politics
    MadConomist
    Forbes Small Business and Entrepreneurs section
    CNN Business News
    PR News Wire
    Reuter - Business News
    BusinessWeek - Small Business

    you can use either internet or if you want to read it in any library then it is also a good idea.

    I usually get my weekly dose of politics from Question Time on a thursday evening (in the UK). I check the BBC news site every day as a way of keeping up to date.

    My weekly journal "US economics made simple for the blogger" is meant to help blogger, and anyone, to catch up with US Economics/politics. It provides insights on the hottest topics of the week. All analyses are based on articles that appeared on Financial Times and The Economist(paper). For more information on it check this thread.

    Henry_Jakson did you look at any of the news sources that I linked to in the second post of this thread? Are any of those helpful to you?
