All our lives are affected deeply by the economy. Each individual’s economic power determines how they spend their time and the quality of their lives. But understanding the economy can be daunting. Every day there is another economic indicator released, another corporation releases its quarterly earnings, or the Federal Reserve makes a rate change. Developments that directly affect us can be hard to follow.
But the majority of the literature and reporting surrounding these issues has traditionally had a distinct bias favoring the perspective of the haves instead of the have-nots.
That is why we at Economic Left seek to provide another perspective, a leftist perspective, to economic news. By using this frame we hope to empower ordinary people with information to understand and help shape economic trends that affect our lives. We hope you find it useful!
