The world of Economy and Finance. Made easy.

Central banks are printing money. Rating agencies put pressure on governments. Governments negotiate bailout packages. And most of the people are puzzled over the questions what all this means for our country? What does it mean for me? What can I do? It’s a journalist’s job to answer this kind of questions. It’s my job. Since 2001 I am working as a journalist and editor at the German Sunday newspaper “Welt am Sonntag” and the daily “Die Welt”. I am covering any topic related to financial markets, in articles, reports and interviews. I am specialized on topics like currencies and the Euro crisis, emerging markets and China, stock markets and general financial topics. Besides I am regularly apperaring as an expert for these topics on TV, in the radio or at public events of any kind. I started my carreer in 2000. At that time a financial editor was the big star at every party. It was the time of the dot-com-bubble and everybody wanted some hint about hot picks. The dot-com-bubble burst long time ago. But the financial markets are more exciting and more important than ever before. That‘s what I am trying to pass to the public. Besides I have published several books. Read more about this on the following pages.

You see: It’s the economy - exciting!
