Wirepoints delivers original research, commentary and hand selected articles from other sources about Illinois’ economy and government. We have a particular focus on the state and local fiscal crises. We try to stick to policy, facts and numbers, not politics.
Our work has been cited approvingly by The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Forbes, The Bond Buyer, Barron’s, ZeroHedge, the Chicago Tribune and many others. We invite reporters and editorialists from all sources to do so.
We also link to third party stories and research from all viewpoints. Our personal perspective is kept separate as commentary or in the right column. There, we don’t hide our perspective as fiscal realists.
Wirepoints content contributors include contacts in government and business. We especially appreciate comments, suggestions and tips.
We want this to be a place for independent thinkers who challenge orthodoxy with facts.
We’re not here to make any friends on the left or the right. We call things as we see them.
