It?s hard to believe that more than ten years have gone by since we began writing The Daily Reckoning out of a Paris office back in July of 1999?
Since then, a lot has changed. We have seen the dot com boom and bust?a massive expansion of credit?real estate mania and meltdown?and epic highs and lows in the markets.
Nothing about the past ten years has been boring. And we have been there throughout, trying to help readers make some sense out of our global economy. And hopefully providing a few laughs along the way.
In short, we pen The Daily Reckoning each day ? for free ? to show you how to live well in uncertain times. We aim to make each article the most entertaining 15-minute read of your day.
If you haven?t signed up yet, I urge you to do so right here. And don?t worry. It?s 100% free ? no credit card is required.
