About my writings & this Blog

Thoughts on Markets & Economy

I created this blog to share my thoughts with friends, colleagues, and others, with the goal of improving my own thinking from discussions that these generate and  by any feedback I get. I will endeavor to bring out some new ideas, but some of these will be equivalent of thinking out loud, and in some cases I will  just be asking questions to provoke thought.

I welcome comments – from both who agree, and from those who disagree with my views.

The opinions and ideas expressed in these writings are solely mine, and not of any of my present or past employers or clients.


The thoughts expressed here are just my opinions at the time of writing, and not necessarily those of any organizations I am associated with. Nothing in any of these write-ups  is a recommendation to buy or sell any specific security, product, or product type. Also, the data presented will be from various sources in original or summary form, without any independent verification by me.
