Website Links

Business/Economics/Finance/Politics Links

Any site that noticeably leans liberal or conservative [in American terms] is denoted by (L) or (C), whereas Libertarian, Marxist, Austrian, MMT or other viewpoints will be called so directly or with the blanket term contrarian to denote “not mainstream.” Some others may generally be considered “liberal” or “moderate” by American political standards, such as most of the European institutions and think tanks, and thus will not be labeled as such.

Policy perspectives laced with social science opinions are divested from the real hard sciences. Much in business or social science is opinion-based, and this allows numerous mutually-exclusive views to simultaneously flourish; such is generally not the case in real hard sciences where theories are more rigorously tested and either accepted, amended or abandoned.  While you will no doubt hold your own viewpoints, it is important to examine the opposition’s argument from their perspectives. Generally it is hard to empirically prove one side ‘wrong’ or ‘right,’ therefore comparisons between viewpoints are invaluable for the learner.
