This organization used to produce great research, but now that most of its research staff has left and poor leadership the research reports are opinion pieces and reflect no analysis whatsoever. They claim to raise money for education and research fellowships but then cancel the programs and keep the funds.

I have bought the low-cost AIER economic education publications for over 55 years. AIER produces clear, unbiased, trustworthy, conservative information that allows readers both to grasp what is happening in the economy and to handle their own savings and investments in a productive way. Donating to a deserving non-profit is always rewarding, but I have found few other non-profits where the rewards to the donor are both as spiritual and as practical .

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 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'm always looking for honest, understandable guidance as I navigate the murky economic waters. I'm tired of being spun by politicians, policy wonks, and media personalities. AIER presents the facts as they are on numberous topics I find very useful. These topics have been used as a guide for my personal and business growth. I would recommend joining the AIER organization and see for yourself how valuable a tool they can be.

This is a great non-profit which has started to really engage the public with its financial literacy and economics programs. This is the real deal when it comes to sound economics and clear explanations of what is going on in the world.
