Welcome to The Daily Reckoning

Transcript

James Woodburn: 

Hi, my name is James Woodburn, and I’m the publisher of The Daily Reckoning Australia. I’d like to welcome you to the family. Over the past few years, there have been some monumental shifts in the markets, trillions in derivatives, banking crisis, trade wars, slow growth in China, record-low interest rates and unprecedented Central Bank meddling. There’s no question the rules of the game have changed. In fact, as you’ll begin to learn each day in The Daily Reckoning, there’s a new set of rules entirely and it’s our mission to help you understand them.

James Woodburn:   

We want to give you the tools to protect yourself and, of course, potentially profit from the trends that the mainstream press either overlooks or simply won’t tell you about. Our Australian-based team, headed by Shay Russell and with contributions from bestselling author and former Wall Street lawyer Jim Rickards, draws on our extensive global network of leading minds in publishing, mining, finance banking, economics and government. If there’s an investment story with a big impact on Australia, you’ll likely hear about it here before anywhere else. Perhaps more importantly, we know the world of money isn’t just bankers and stock market moves or energy and technology or golden property.

James Woodburn: 

It’s all of these things put together that make up the larger story. Our goal is to help put the world of finance into context, to help you connect the dots between your bank account, the market and the decisions made in Canberra and elsewhere around the world. Once again, welcome to our site. Please look around our archives or run a few searches on topics that interest you. We add to it each day and I hope you find our one-of-its-kind e-letter an incredible resource at your disposal. Thanks for joining us.
