Websites featuring news and analysis of current issues relating to personal finance and economics

In a time of fake news, hidden agendas and not-so-hidden agendas, it’s necessary to know which news sources to trust. News feeds from the major search engines should be reliable but - unless they are being properly curated - rely on automatic filters which have been applied retroactively. Automatic filters have repeatedly been shown to be unreliable.

Here are some financial news sources I consider most trustworthy. Most, if not all, have regional editions available.

The Financial Times

Owned by Nikkei Inc. (Japan) since July 2015, The FT has long enjoyed a reputation as the most credible and widely-read source of financial & business news. Although it has at various times supported one economic policy over another, it has no fixed political affiliation.

Dow Jones & Company

Owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp since 2007, the views of Dow Jones Network organizations tends toward the right.
