Zero Hedge



Zero Hedge is an economic and investment site that reports and analyzes political, social and economic events worldwide. The site frequently reports world and financial news that is not "consumer-friendly" enough for most media markets.

Zero Hedge is aggressive in spotting and reporting on preceived market manipulation, questionable economic decision-making, odd or unexplained market trends, and global events that could affect investors. It is particularly vigilant in reporting when poor economic news is downplayed or "spun" as positive by the major news organizations.

The proprietory, Tyler Durden, is a witty and insightful writer. He and his guest writers post interesting, though often very technical, discussions that are often edgy and occasionally laced with "gallows humor" (given their current assessment of the economic crisis).

The site assumes an understanding of some economics and the issues of the day.
