Journalist and Author
September 10, 2005
Not for nothing do her initials stand for "Central Bank." For nearly two decades, Caroline Baum has produced incisive commentary on central bank policy, the ebbs and flows of the economy, and how they influence the bond market. Her much sought-after, real-time analysis is read by a devoted audience on the Bloomberg Professional service within seconds after it appears. The word on the Street is that reading Caroline Baum is an economic education in itself.
This selection from her more than 1,300 Bloomberg News columns, arranged by major themes and with new introductions by the author, condenses and organizes that wisdom for the first time in print.
Caroline Baum has been a financial journalist since 1987. Prior to her writing career she spent six years selling municipal bonds. In 2004 and 2005, Baum received first-place National Headliner Awards in the wire service/commentary category. She is seen and heard regularly on Bloomberg Television and Radio.
