Welcome to Agora Inc.



For the ancient Greeks, the center of social activity was the Agora, a lively marketplace where people came not only to buy and sell goods but also to meet to exchange news and ideas. That same philosophy is what drives Agora, Inc.

We’re a holding company for various publishers of financial, health, travel and special interest books and newsletters -- each offering ideas, information and insights you can’t find anywhere else.

Some of what we publish is very practical — such as how to get the best price for an airline ticket, or how to best manage arthritis pain. Other topics are rather abstract — such as man’s relationship to the state, or how monetary policy affects our lives. But all of these messages have something in common. They all celebrate the virtue of thinking independently and taking responsibility for your own life. Read on
