  4. randy in florida commented on Feb 28

  5. Deborah commented on Feb 28

    I concur about reading media directly… It is shallow, usually just a re-print of what a company put out so not a balanced view.

    Blogs are so much better, and you can quickly assess if they are credible or not. Others do the sifting for you with blogs.

    Tom Keene is one of the best economic interviewers out there. The program is a do-not-miss and he gets the top talent.

  7. Carmen commented on Feb 28

    You can subscribe to “on the economy” podcasts via Itunes. Quite worthwhile.

    I’ll add to all the praise. Keene’s podcasts are a good listen while in traffic on the way to work.

    Given the choice between interviews of various media star Broker analysts cheerleading the market on TV and Tom Keene’s interviews of various economists telling me we’re all going straight to hell, it’ll be Keene every time.

    Hearing Keene’s guest describe how unprecedented the sub-prime debacle is and how long it’ll take to unwind got me out of stocks for now, which I’m grateful for. . .

    These are times of crisis for our country. The Federal Reserve should acknowledge its responsibility for overinflating the money supply, which has spawned bubbles in real estate, stocks and commodities.
