Published weekly, The Economist is an invaluable source of financial news. Highly recommended by many of the Investment Masters, The Economist provides insight into world events, interesting industry news and macro developments. I recall reading The Economist in late 2007 when their proprietary R-Word Index ['Recession'] was flashing warning signals. The Economist was well ahead of the curve in relation to the escalation in credit derivatives prior to the Financial Crisis and provided an imminent warning on the dangers residing in the US housing market. Highly recommended reading.
Barron's is published weekly and provides interesting insights into companies, economic events and investor interviews. While it tends to be US centric its worth checking out weekly.
Graham & Doddesville
The student-run Graham and Doddsville newsletter gets released three times per year. Similar to the Value Investor Insight newsletter, G&D contains interviews with many of the world's greatest investors. An excellent source of ideas, investment wisdom and insights into some of the world's best investors. Past editions have included interviews with Howard Marks, Bill Ackman, Frank Martin, Leon Cooperman, Bruce Berkowitz, Larry Robbins, Jim Chanos etc. Highly recommended reading.
Value Investor Insight
Value Investor Insight is published monthly and contains a collection of interviews with high quality investors with solid track records. I've found it an invaluable resource enabling me to identify industry trends early and improve my thought process around companies, industries and investing generally. Many of the Investment Masters have featured in the newsletter including Bruce Berkowitz, Jim Chanos, Seth Klarman, Leon Cooperman, Lee Ainslee, Ed Wachenheim, Larry Robbins, Joel Greenblatt etc. I'd much prefer to listen to a real money manager with skin in the game than a Wall Street analyst any day of the week.

Value Investing World is a great source of information on investing, successful investors and human psychology. Its updated daily with useful links. A great resource.

China Financial Markets - Michael Pettis
Mr Pettis' blog focuses primarily on the Chinese economy. Mr Pettis is a Professor at Peking University. I've followed his blog since the Financial Crisis and his understanding of the Chinese economy, its growth model and the implications for hard commodities and the world economy has been second to none. His prescient calls on the slowing China economy, his insights in the European crisis and his 2012 piece ‘By 2015 Hard Commodities will have collapsed’ means he's worth listening too. Not an easy read but worth the effort.
