Blogging Intermission

I just wanted to update you all on some changes that have occurred in my life that prevent me from blogging regularly over the near term. Recently, my career path shifted from economic research and forecasting to emerging market fixed income asset management; and as such, I am spending a lot of time learning and a lot less time blogging.

As I derive quite a bit of utility from blogging, I will not be away for too long. Please give me a month or so to sort out the bond markets before I commit myself once again to the "Daily analysis of global economic and financial conditions with a focus on the U.S. TBA."

By the way, I am open to sharing this website with another blogger or two. Eventually, my thoughts are certainly going to shift toward countries other than those of the G7, so an economics focus on the G7 (or any one country) would be perfect.

If you are interested, send me an email with a short proposal (just a paragraph or two) and a link to your work. I am open to new ideas.

Best and thank you for your patience, Rebecca


  1. Congrat for the career shift (the US are a bit boring after a while). Hope to read you soon, maybe with some blogmates... Learn and proper.


  2. Best to you Rebecca!

    With FIFA World Cup in 2014 and Olympics in 2016, is there any fixed income investment opportunity better than Brazil, both on the government side and on the commercial side?

    Shouldn't it get named 'Emerging Territory' over "Emerging Market"?

    After all, what market are we talking about? The market for cotton in India? The market for holiday rentals in Chile? The market for beer in Latvia?

    The nomenclature of "emerging markets" is wrong -- not your fault, of course.

    Those who work in the investment world use quite a bit of rhetoric to disguise the inherent gambling nature of their products.

  3. Nice you will have a larger selection of countries from which to choose. Doesn't the G7 get boring after a while? Good luck, aj

  4. I think your priorities are backward Rebecca...just saying as a non-partisan. :)

  5. I used to read your post once in a while, but with your new career path we ll have much more in common. I am an EM fixed income prop trader so I ll be sure to read all your post in a timely manner :).
    Congratulations, it is a very exciting job indeed.

  6. hope u start blogging again soon!
