Take a look at the Economics and Business Subject Guide.
It provides links for

along with tips on searching, recommended websites and tools.
Consult a variety of fields related to your topic.
Pay attention to biases in your sources!

While it is often appropriate for background information and starting research, keep in mind what Wikipedia founder Jimmie Wales said:
“For God sake, you’re in college; don’t cite the encyclopedia.”
Thesis students have extended loan periods for Tutt Library books.
