Perhaps more than any other time in the last six decades, the fate of markets is inextricably intertwined with the ebb and flow of geopolitics. Simply put, one cannot fully comprehend financial markets without a thorough understanding of concurrent political outcomes.
Drawing on extensive experience in both political science and finance, we help demystify a world in which investors can no longer hope to conceptualize of markets as existing in anything that even approximates a vacuum.
These are interesting times. With the general public increasingly distrustful of mainstream news outlets, there’s voracious demand for independent perspectives. Unfortunately, many so-called “alternative” news sources are not, in fact, independent, are not accountable and do not adhere to basic journalistic standards.
We are different. We really are independent. We really do have an academic leg to stand on in our coverage. And we really do try to ensure that our political content is informative – even when it reflects our own political biases.
While we do not claim to be free of bias, what we do promise is to never knowingly print misinformation, propaganda or outright lies.
Brief biographical on the editor
Heisenberg spent a long time in college. Probably too long. Be that as it may, it afforded him extensive cross-disciplinary experience.
From Aristotle to Kant to Wittgenstein, from Hobbes to Locke to Rousseau, from plain vanilla equities to FX to credit to rates, Heisenberg is right at home. With degrees in political science and business, as well as extensive post graduate work in political science and public administration, Heisenberg is uniquely positioned to analyze markets from a holistic perspective. He also has a sense of humor and a knack for biting satire.
