    I am looking for free business websites other than the usual news.com.au, smh etc.
    Do you have a favourite business websites with mostly Australian content?
    AFR is always good but it's not free.

    No worries. It's a pretty good website (the Conversations page gets some interesting comments) but as always a grain of salt.

    News is there to sell not necessarily inform.
