Support AIER's Mission Today

AIER was established in 1933 to conduct factual, unbiased research into the wide range of economic, social, and monetary developments that had contributed to the catastrophic economic contraction of the Great Depression. With many self-proclaimed experts currently promoting their own agendas, the need for such a self-sufficient, objective educational organization is clearly just as paramount today as it was in 1933.

Our independence is our most valuable asset. We do not accept gifts from commercial interests, or the government. We depend, instead, on continued support from individual readers like you, who understand the importance of the independent economic perspective we offer. Support AIER’s mission today with your financial support.
