AIER is great for making economics simple(r). And they apply their research to real life situations such as their recent research on College values and my favorite the Everyday Price Index, a much more realistic price gauge that the CPI which has become little more than government baloney. When I am reading AIER research I feel like I am reading info that has been produced outside of the USA because it has no slant at all and doesn't make a point so much as give you information you can use. Just so that you know why I read stuff like this, I am a former high school economics teacher(as well as English), a former stock broker/financial planner and a current insurance agent.

The AIER provides clear, easy to understand, information on a subject that is critical to our lives but poorly understood: economics. Yes, that sounds dull, even dismal, but AIER publications provide descriptions and facts from a perspective that is relevant and useful. This is quite a change from the common choices for economic news: 1) 'sales pitch' or 2) political opinion. They were founded back in the depression when a lot of bad ideas were promoted as 'solutions' ... rather like today. Their explanations and facts provide a solid foundation for understanding what matters in your personal decision making.

AIER "tells it like it is" by giving unbiased, nonpartisan information about economics which truly educates those fortunate to receive their information. AIER is now reaching out to more people and, very importantly to our governmental leaders and decision makers. Hopefully, their educational efforts will be successful and result in a strong and bright future for the USA.

I have been an investment advisor for 18 years, and a subscriber/donor to AIER fof over 10. Their detailed, unbiased insights have aided me time and again. Not only in how I manage accounts, but where it REALLY counts in my business and charity work... educating others. I have bounced around from resource to resource over the years, but AIER has been a consistent, objective rudder through many years of foggy "white noise". JJRob

I have an advanced degree in physics and consequently have used mathematics often in my career. I observe that AIER is the only entity publishing for laymen with a science-based approach to explaining economics. They are careful not to make speculative claims, unlike many 'experts' in this field. They offer an interesting contrast to the majority of is available to the general public from the media.

AIER has been in my life since before I can remember. Though I never got a degree in economics, I owe my financial literacy to AIER. Today, I live in Southern California, my wife and I are raising two children on one income, and are saving for retirement. AIER gave me an appreciation for the importance of saving and low personal debt. We are weathering the poor economy and high cost of living, particularly here. I am encouraged by the consistent, principled, and timely instruction the AIER newsletter provide me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get it growing.

I have been a subscriber to AIER and AIS publications and newsletters for many years. Can't remember who got me started but my departed father-in-law was a long-time subscriber well before me, so it's sort of in the family. The people at AIER and AIS are good, very good. They almost alone among many make clear what is going on in the economies of the United States and the world. On a personal level, AIS has sold me on conservative passive investing. On a wider level, AIER explains that the best occurs when sound, objective, apolitical thoughtfulness is brought to bear on economic planning and problem solving. For sound economic thinking, no organization beats AIER.

I have been a subscriber to AIER's newsletter and economic research reports for several years. As a certified public accountant I have used some their publications to become better acquainted with insurance, investment strategies, public policy and the motivating factors which caused some of the historically siginificant changes in laws that affect our economy. I also highly value their economic forecasts and have found AIER to be the most reliable source of available economic data. To me AIER definitely qualifies as a "Great Nonprofit".

I first made a donation to this organization a couple of years ago in order to receive their information. I was pleasantly surprised at their commitment to provide unbiased information on a range of topics, and I have come to trust their analyses. I also greatly appreciate their books, e-books, and other materials. I look to them for continued unbiased information, and I am thrilled that they are taking their information to the general public (free-of-charge) in order to better get needed information to everyone. Hopefully people will read it and understand that Federal government business-as-usual is not the answer!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading their newsletters and books has helped me understand retirement planning, getting my affairs in order, and understanding the economy. I appreciate their unbiased approach.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I like their plan to transition to providing information to the public free-of-charge, and I will continue to donate to make that happen.
