Recommendations regarding Lyn Alden's site?

The latest free version of Lyn Alden’s newsletter is out and, as always, she gives a macro, historical context to messy current events in clear English with compelling evidence. I always find it an enjoyable read. The theme of this edition is summarized in her sentence,

“…In other words, we can have no growth and less inflation, or some growth and a lot of inflation, but if we want ample growth with low inflation, then fixing the energy supply side is necessary.”

Thanks! I've subscribed to her free newsletter and am in the midst of reading this one.

My favorite of her articles probably remains this one: https://www.lynalden.com/fraying-petrodollar-system/

This is extensive, but full of info: https://www.lynalden.com/what-is-money/

This is a pretty good primer for beginners who want to invest: https://www.lynalden.com/how-to-invest-money/

As some commenters have noted, you can find this information elsewhere. But it seems to me that she has a pretty good understanding. She's also more bullish on Bitcoin than I am, but on the other hand, she's wealthier than I am, so she can better handle the gut-wrenching price changes...

Those who are interested in macroeconomic developments from a layman's perspective, might find the Uneducated Economist on youtube interesting. While Lyn can be very good, she can be too technical at times for causal reading. This guy is more topical and down to earth.

Despite having barely graduated high school (his words) and working a retail job at a lumber supply store, his passion has been to learn about economics, economic theories and he watches (reads) Fed minutes and uses all that to give a somewhat different take on the economy as compared to traders on CNBC. Most of his videos are about 10 minutes in length where he sits in his car and talks. I occasionally listen when I am working on something around the house.

I just learned some things from him. I'd never listen to him sitting at a bar (not that I do, I don't drink alcohol) but listening to a youtube video, he makes sense of the economy. I love the background.
