Like Money Magazine, I'm not sure it has too much to recommend. Nevertheless,
you never know what you might find, and all articles are available without
- The New Republic
A weekly journal of opinion, although it doesn't specify whose opinion. Regardless,
it frequently addresses current economic issues of relevance.
- Slate http://www.slate.com/
An online magazine that covers a variety of contemporary issues, including
economics, policy, and finance. Since it is published by Microsoft Corp.,
one would expect it to be of dismal quality. It is, in fact, surprisingly
good, although frequent references are made to the mother company, and you're
unlikely to find anything addressing anti-trust issues. Unsurprisingly, they
started charging for subscriptions. Their web-savvy audience didn't tolerate
that for a minute: it's free again.
