I have taken a basic economics course and read some academic economic stuff here and there, but these have been viscerally “theoretical” in nature. I want to understand real-world concepts like value chains, stocks, venture capital, IPO, corporations (I can’t quite say I know what a corporation IS.) ... . The best resource I have found to date is http://stratechery.com . I am wondering if more efficient learning material exists. I don’t want advice/prediction books (on management or investing). I simply want to understand the basic stuff about these concepts. Financial literacy, I would say. I don’t know if there is a name for this ”field of study.”
