In this rapidly evolving yet skittish environment, what factors will sustain and accelerate the recent uptick in deal activity? What must Washington and Wall Street do, individually and collectively, to promote deals and reap the economic benefits they deliver? Where should dealmakers be looking to do deals? These are just some of the issues tackled in The Deal Economy, a blog penned by Robert Teitelman, Editor in Chief of The Deal magazine and The Deal Pipeline. Join our conversation on reanimating capital markets from now until our exclusive event, The Deal Economy 2012, at the NYSE in December.

The Deal LLC Since 1999, The Deal LLC has been a leader in sophisticated coverage of The Deal Economy. Through The Deal magazine and The Deal Pipeline, we provide unique and proprietary content that serves the news, information and idea generation needs of corporate and financial dealmakers, advisers, intermediaries and ...More
investors. "Imagine a world without deals," says Robert Teitelman, Editor in Chief. "Transactions are agents of change. The surge of dealmaking is not just the result of deregulation or advisers' incentives, rather it is fueled by accelerating technology, geopolitical change and innovative capital markets. Without dealmaking, corporations would be locked in stasis, like sleeping giants, unable to sustain the macro-economy. For all its chaos, we need a deal economy."
The Deal Economy Dealmaking, and particularly the deal economy, involves an intellectual component that, over the past few years, has become more apparent and, arguably, more important. It involves continuums and the frictions and anxieties they create -- between Wall Street and Main Street, between politics and finance, ...More
retail and wholesale, shareholder and manager, prudence and growth, have and have-not. Is Wall Street too big? Should banks be broken up? Does shareholder democracy work? What are the origins of the financial crisis? What kind of regulatory system should we have, and can we effectively regulate a sophisticated financial system in a democracy? How has the past shaped the present? What does it mean to operate in a market? Many of these involve broad, shifting and often murky frontiers between politics and finance, and that means wrestling with the kind of ideas that continually circle above us (like the deal economy itself) rattling their chains: the efficient market hypothesis, stakeholder and shareholder governance, regulatory models, bonuses, size, conflicts, notions of sophistication and fiduciary responsibility, strategy, valuation. For seven years or so now, I've been trying readers' patience on some of these subjects in a regular column in The Deal magazine called Transactions; and for several years I was also an enthusiastic contributor to a communal blog we ran here (there's an archive of selected columns and crisis book reviews). Now there's The Deal Economy Blog. A few caveats. I can't promise I will write every day and certainly not toss posts up throughout the day; I have another job here that keeps interfering. While I hope to stay close to events of current interest, this blog will not substitute for a comprehensive real-time jolt of deal news, data and our famous sophisticated ideas; for that consult The Deal Pipeline, which displays the full output of our newsroom. This is also not Twitter. It's a weakness, I know, but I'd rather try to explore an idea as completely as possible rather than blast telegraphic dispatches from deep within my sluggish id. The posts here are mine alone; don't bug my colleagues with complaints, though we are more than eager for comments, the best of which (my choice) we will publish. And I will promise one more thing: Unlike this post, you will not be assailed by the faux-intimacy of the first person singular, and you will not have to read my bitter thoughts about life or footwear or fate. Much as I enjoy a glass or two of wine, there will be no tasting notes. No sports. No movie reviews. Alas, no sex. Few celebrities. No tales of genius children. In short, this is all about The Deal Economy. Hope you'll stop by. We'll break out the Dubonnet and scratch the dog. - Robert Teitelman, Editor in Chief, The Deal magazine and The Deal Pipeline
