check EMM News Brief tab at top of page, too. Its search engine also provides comprehensive information about governments and economic / dynamic real-time info. Right hand sidebar lists current and recent news around the world for a quick overview and access points.



also CNN Business and CNN International


These are some of the sources I use, but I also watch Bloomberg, CNN and CNN International, FoxNews, FoxBusiness, CNBC, Headline News (a CNN product) and BBC America (which is more like a game show than the news but they’re fun anyway.)

I don’t trust any of them to tell me the truth – so do whatever it takes to check the facts as they actually exist makes the best sense to me. There are other places online to find facts obviously, but personally, I look for leads more than interpretation so I can locate sources, facts and accurate figures.


And, there are at least four things I can think of that will solve our financial crisis / economic crisis in America – and the business leaders, politicians, government leaders and others in a position to do so – aren’t going to do any of those things either. And – I would venture to guess others have solutions that will work as well and these leaders aren’t going to do those things either,  or in fact, anything else that could work until it is really too late to matter. Doesn’t that say it all . . .
