A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Over the years and decades, Scott Grannis has seen it all (ask him sometime about his first-hand knowledge of portfolio insurance!), which affords him a tremendous amount of experiential wisdom. During his near-30 years as Chief Economist at Western Asset Management, Scott shared his market comments, insights, and perceptions to a rarified audience. No secret that Scott came to be regarded as an economist's Economist.

But Scott really needs no introduction from me, as I have shared with you many of his private market commentaries. Now, and after much nudging from me, Scott (finally!) has begun his own blog, Calafia Beach Pundit.

I cannot recommend strongly enough that you place his blog on your daily reading list.
