About Agora Financial

Agora Financial provides independent economic commentary through print and online publications, print and e-books, films and international conferences. For over 25 years, Agora Financial has been a leading innovator in the financial publishing industry. Not only have our economic forecasts been uncannily accurate, but we've consistently beaten the mainstream financial media to the punch.

Agora Financial readers were aware of the housing bubble, the credit bubble, the excesses underlying the Panic of '08, the pending collapse of Lehman Bros. and the bankruptcy of American Airlines well before they happened - and in many cases, were able to prosper while other investors got blindsided.

Executive publisher Addison Wiggin, a New York Times best-selling author and the driving force behind the critically acclaimed documentary film I.O.U.S.A, and our editorial team continue to challenge traditional publishing outlets by offering irreverent, insightful commentary where others fear to tread. Agora Financial editors' consistent ability to stay ahead of the mainstream has earned recognition from dozens of media sources, including The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Financial Times and others.
