This is Economics Matters - a newsletter discussing our global, national, and personal economies. It covers geopolitical events, markets, macroeconomic conditions, politics, policy, and personal finance. As is clear from kotlikoff.net, I work on a ton of topics. Each newsletter will cover a range of issues with links to my columns for Forbes, The Hill, CNBC, and other media outlets. I’ll also critically assess other writers’ views on topics large and small. As you’ll see, I’m a tough critic. I think much of what passes for economic analysis and financial advice is half-baked. So get ready for a deeper understanding of economics and how you can personally succeed in these challenging times.
