Are there any unbiased sources for learning about economics? I'm still fairly wet behind the ears in all this, but thrashing normies in economic debates has always been fun, and I want more information so I can handle myself better, but at the same time I don't want sources saying their right way of think is the only right way to think, since that limits the extent of how much you can learn. the majority of what I know came from "How an economy works, and why it doesnt", but partway through it I felt like it was becoming more and more biased, which bummed me out.

If someone says raising the minimum wage to $15/hr will help everyone, i'm going to destroy everything they say.
What a heap of shit. Absolutely reddit as fuck. Not that the guys who write it are dumb, but it's not going to educate dumb people. They'll grow in to redditors who think that economics is a mathematical optimisation problem and who have zero thought for the moral questions underlying everything.
Were they right? Are credit cycles the only reason for booms and busts?
Good place to start investing in small amounts? I really want to get into investing, I've bought a few books "Investing 101"-Kathy Kristof and "The Intelligent Investor"-Benjamin Graham. I've mainly been looking at CapitalOneInvesting or FolioINvesting, I've even been considering trying out apps on my phone such as Acorns or Robinhood. Any advice helps, and sorry for the bad english. It is not my first language
What forms of messaging, other than email, are most commonly used by the business people?
Why do accountants get such a bad rap when people in finance are idolized even though you end up doing the same job if you work at a bank?
because accounting is boring as fuck and finance is pictures as a wolf of wall street fuck every pussy do coke type of job. In reality you both stare at an excel spreadsheet all day and try not to kill yourself. source, former accounting major
What's a good blue collar job to train for? Im not stupid but if im being honest with myself I don't really have the motivation or self control for anything more than a year or so of schooling. I just want a job with decent pay without backbreaking work.

I was thinking of pulling out of SYN and taking that loss and putting it into SNTA. Where's that guy that was talking about it last thread?
So I'm being trained at Jiffy Lube right now, which sucks but I just left working for my dad which sucked worse than minimum wage safeway. What should I do? I can do anything. I'm trying to be reasonable but fucking A, after losing money working for my dad for half a year and hating my other jobs and being sick and tired in general, failing school and not wanting to join the army. wat do senpai?
What I did was get really cheap rent by asking around while having a source of income. It's all about having a source of income and working is a great way. Sometimes there are times when the money is low and we have bad times.
Sell your body since it seems you have no skills to offer society
Anyone take Provigil (Modafinil)? I took one and pulled an all nighter, went and hiked for 4 hours in the morning without feeling tired at all. Awesome experience. Hope the side effects aren't too bad.
so is lite coins a ok thing to mine and what can you actually buy with lite coins? mfw i want to mine lite coins but don't know how
On coinmarketcap you can see how all coins are doing and have done.
On coinwarz you can see current profitability of each coin if you sell directly. This does not include initial investments in equipment.
If your serious about mining, visit litecoin irc or forum to read guides or ask for help.
Id say mining is only interesting if you have access to free or very cheap electricity.
How do I make millions off of the misery of college graduates who are $100,000 in debt?
You get them before their loans are in repayment while they are exploiting their parents' money.
You aren't allowed to carry weapons on most college campuses, so most college students can easily be robbed at gunpoint.
Advertise around campus that you've opened up a new company.
Tell everyone that this company will pay off their debts for them, and all they have to do is pay you a commission rate of whatever the loan's interest rate is, plus 2% every month.
I'm 26 years old, currently living with my parents. I make ~60k a year, have 20k saved in my checking account, and I have $430 a month car payment to make with like 5 years to pay it off. My question is, what are my best options to make money with the 20k I have in the bank. I'm currently saving for my own house, but I don't plan on doing that for at least another year or shit maybe even two.
I've thought about possibly flipping houses, and maybe having my father be a partner in that seeing as how he used to frame houses, and built his house and did...

Any advice for running a traphouse?
I have a background in the pimp game and I'm looking to expand my portfolio because it ain't easy.
My GPA is fucked atm and I want to transfer out of the shitty state school that I'm at currently. I'm a sophomore with a CS degree plan and a 3.1 GPA. This last semester was very tough on me and I had to drop most of my courses. Not due to partying or anything, but because my father recently passed away and I haven't been able to cope really well with it.
The thing is, I want to try and get a job in finance. Is there anywhere that I can transfer to that offers a good program in finance? Or am I SOL? Money doesn't matter, as my father's estate will pay for it.
