ECO 201 - Principles of Economics MACRO: Articles/Current Events

Research and Articles

A good place to find articles is in the Library's databases. They contain magazines, journals, newspapers, reference books, video files, audio files, and podcasts.  Search any of the Databases for Business & Economics.

Try searching for economic aspects.  Then look on the right and choose journal, magazine or news.  Look further down the right side column for the options to limit the results to articles and to certain subjects.


*Conducting a database search is different than conducting a search with a web search engine.  The database searching guide below provides some helpful tips for searching databases and evaluating sources.
