The 5 Min. Forecast is a daily e-letter covering the economy and the markets, now reaching 275,000 paying subscribers.
It draws on the input from a team of globally connected, outside-the-box financial thinkers — private investors, world travelers, accomplished analysts, former floor traders, leading scientists and inventors, hedge fund quants, policy wonks, best-selling financial authors, film makers, commodities experts. Each is uniquely qualified to alert you to the news and trends you can use to develop a winning investment strategy. Timely, down to earth, to the point.
Our daily recipe goes something like this: Take our entire team’s best ideas… mix in some not-so-common takes on the day’s financial headlines… throw in a dash of “quirk” from the business world… and add a generous helping of reader feedback. Leaven the whole thing with the mockery Wall Street and Washington so richly deserve. Bake for 5 Mins.
History of The 5 Min. Forecast
The 5 Min. Forecast was launched in 2007 by Addison Wiggin, veteran financial publisher, author of three New York Times business bestsellers and executive producer of the breakthrough documentary I.O.U.S.A.
Dave Gonigam joined as managing editor in 2010, bringing an old-school journalist’s curiosity along with 20 years of experience as an Emmy award-winning TV news producer. In 2017, Emily Clancy came aboard as associate editor.
Throughout, our aim each day has been a simple one: That you learn at least one interesting thing you didn’t know before… and you decide to come back the next day.
