AIER is a source of economic research and opinion, untainted by the usual contaminants. They do not take money from the Government, they do not accept money from Industry, They are not beholden to any institution of higher learning. The staff and fellows objectively research and write about topics of importance in our world and economy. Their presentation is comprehensible to the average interested reader and makes sense in the context of what we witness in our daily lives. Their analysis of the economic indicators on a monthly basis is one of the most important sources of information I have and I read it without fail. If government would take note of this unfailing source of economic sanity and hold financial policy up to its light, many mistakes in the public sector could be avoided.

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 used to write for AIER years ago, but even though I've moved on, I still read, enjoy, and circulate a lot of their work. The advantage they have is that they are not so vested in the political process. They are in the business of education, not lobbying, and they bring a more neutral stance to current events. They also target their work to individual action—as in, what can you do? The only drawback is that their articles can be a little dry and academic, and I imagine some people would have a hard time following and engaging with it.
