More Reading

If you want to know what’s going on in the world and in management, economics, and agriculture these are some great sources.

Note: many of the sources below are behind paywalls, after all, good information is expensive to create.  If you were to subscribe to just a few of these, I strongly recommend either the Wall Street Journal or the Financial Times (both if you can afford it).  If you are a manager or business owner, get a subscription to the Harvard Business Review.



The Financial Times

The Wall Street Journal

The Economist

Less Mainstream:

City Journal [City Journal is the nation’s premier urban-policy magazine, “the Bible of the new urbanism,” as London’s Daily Telegraph puts it]

KGS NightWatch [NightWatch is an internationally acclaimed nightly newsletter that tracks and assesses threats to US national security]

Off the Path:

Vice [be careful, this one is a little risque; however, it is a good non-mainstream source of news]


Farm Journal Media [A variety of publications with news and information on agriculture]

The Progressive Farmer [Production, agribusiness, and agricultural news]

Brownfield [News and market information]

Agricultures Magazine by Purdue [Agricultures is published three times a year and is available by free subscription]
