Why subscribe?

Hi. My name is Edward Harrison. Since 2000, I have successfully predicted every major swing in the US economy using macro data analysis. That includes the downturn at the turn of the century, the downturn that began in 2007, and the mid-cycle pause that began in 2014. Knowing how to position yourself ahead of these events makes or breaks businesses and portfolios. Subscribe to get full access to the weekday newsletter on the economy and markets. Never miss an update.

My bio

Here’s the obligatory bio section. I founded Credit Writedowns in 2008 as a blog and am a former career diplomat, investment banker and technology executive with thirty years of business experience. In the past, I was a regular economic and financial commentator in print and on television. But now, I spend my time as managing editor at Real Vision, the financial media startup and here at The Credit Writedowns Newsletter. Hopefully, you will get an international flavor from my newsletter as I speak six languages and reads another five. I have an MBA in Finance from Columbia University and a BA in Economics from Dartmouth College. I think that about rounds it out.
