Here is a list of links with resources for this forum that will hopefully help you all out in the future if you find yourself wanting to discuss and/or debate in the Government and Economics forum here at CGR. Iím going to try to include both sources for the U.S. and Canada; but since Iím not very experienced when it comes to Canadian government donít consider the Canadian side of things nearly complete. Also, this list might be helpful for any political science and/or economics papers you might run across in school.
Another thingÖ Iíll warn you: just as the list will be heavier on the American side, it will also be heavy on the government side of things as well. I am not the most experienced in economics, though I know the basics (and when I mean basics, I mean basics) of systems, theories, etc. For now, this thread will remain a sticky thread closed only to me. If you want to contribute, PM me with what you want to add on to it and Iíll open it up to you. General resources in government:
