References to economic literature can be found through IDEAS (an interface to Research Papers in Economics (RePEc)) and EconLit. The latter requires a subscription.

Both use the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) Classification System. This is helpful to find related literature.

Economic Data

Many International Organizations opened their databases to the public. The World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the United Nations provide great data for comparative research.

Sometimes Credit Rating Agencies like Standard & Poor's, Moody's or Fitch Ratings provide useful data.

University Courses

The Department of Economics at Yale offers videos and transcripts of three excellent courses on the topics of Financial Markets (taught by Robert Shiller), Financial Theory and Game Theory.
