Useful News Outlets:
I suggest students subscribe to these journals (normally these news outlets offer a student discount). They keep you updated about major global (financial) events and will help you develop research ideas. For those who will not pursue a career in finance and who cannot afford the subscription fees, BBC and Financial Times are alternatives.
The followings are the programs I am listening to. One of my favorites is "The Financial Assassin" by Capitalisn’t hosted by Kate Waldock and Luigi Zingales. For those who are interested in becoming an excellent trader, this is a must-listen.
Capitalisn’t; Freakonomics Radio; Big Brains; ECONTALK; Probable Causation.
