Analysis / Bias
In review, EconomicPolicyJournal.com primarily covers economics from a Libertarian/Austrian Economics perspective. Article headlines use moderately loaded headlines such as this: Jordan Peterson Destroys the Notion That the Norwegian Social Engineering Requirement, That 40% of Board Members Be Female, is Successful. In general, information is well sourced to credible media outlets.
EconomicPolicyJournal.com strongly promotes Austrian Economics (Anarcho-Capitalism) in which there is almost zero government intervention and regulation of markets. Based on this, EPJ does not have a favorable view of the Trump administration’s economic approach.
A factual search reveals the EconomicPolicyJournal.com has not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate EPJ Right Biased based on free-market economic policy and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 8/12/2018)
