Investigative Economics publishes original, independent data analysis and open-source investigative journalism that exists nowhere else.

The site is dedicated to the blind spots: the stories that fall between the cracks left by other outlets yet are still essential to understanding the full picture of the events around us.

The emphasis is on fact-based, heavily sourced and reliable publishing—whether it be from open-source documents, government data, or reporting. Because of the limited budget, that means stories are often simple in production, short in length, and with few bells and whistles. The bare-bones approach is meant to maintain the site's independent nature and ensure that the scope of publishing is never limited.

The Issue With Google Results

Google issue appeared to be resolved. Some day we’ll find out why.

The site has been buried in Google results for a few years. Not an issue in Bing and DuckDuckGo. Google’s spider gets errors contacting the site despite it being hosted on a common publishing platform (Substack).

Attempts to contact Google have proved fruitless. Would be interested to hear if others have similar issues.
