An organisation set up in 1919 under the name National Propaganda. Its name was changed to the Economic League in 1924. Its main early functions were corporate propaganda and spying on the left. From about the 1950s its main role became blacklisting workers regarded as being 'subversives' in some way.

The League was closed down in the 1990s and a successor body, called Caprim set up.
