The Watchful Investor "Bringing you the underreported, the underappreciated, and the overlooked news from the markets."
Jim Waddell created this frequently updated journal providing economic news and commentary, as well as a newsletter which gives more detailed coverage of specific market events and issues. Accessible and interesting, yet not dumbed down.

Um, who is Jim Waddell? A quick google search turned up this on him. Same guy?

I just want to know where he is coming from. Helps me understand his opinions better.

Honestly I don't know much about him. I've been reading the site for a few months (basically since it started) and finding it informative and generally making a lot of sense. Note also that he isn't the only author, there is also a contributor named Daniel Andrade. Sorry I can't provide background on either, that's probably a good suggestion for an addition to their site.

A similar site.

Oh great, it's yet another economics blog. Unfortunately, I don't much care for the way he talks about China. Not that he's wrong, exactly, but the analysis seems very superficial. So I don't think it's going on my feed list.

If you're looking for more market/economics/investing blogs, Seeking Alpha has a (nowhere near complete) list.

Waddell has the right to blog about anything. It makes no difference whether I or any of us have the least interest in his topic. He can write.

As an investor in stocks and bonds, this blog simply doesn't turn me on. Waddell deals minimally with individual instruments that one invests in. His recent emphasis on China is of no more than peripheral interest. [Yawn] Really, how many investors put their money in China?

I can't criticize Waddell. It's HIS blog. But who cares?

China is somewhat important to your economic well-being. Everyone who shops at Wal-Mart puts money into China. Question is whether they can ever get it back out.

BTW, looks like Bill Cara is back to blogging today. Good place to find more trading-oriented stuff.

When life confuses me, my I-bonds will never fail me.
