Blogger on anything economics and (occasionally) politics. Prefer to look at the larger scale issues which can affect the stock market and the overall economy both in the long- as well as in the short-run. Unlike company-specific events, economy-wide phenomena affect the whole market; those who can anticipate such movements are always a step ahead than the rest. Interests include banking, finance and macroeconomic issues, with a special interest on monetary and fiscal policy. Experienced both in the academic sector as well as the banking and consulting industry.
