Our Story

We trace our roots to three groundbreaking financial publications: Strategic Investment (1984)… Plague of the Black Debt (1992)… and The Daily Reckoning (1999) — one of the first free daily financial e-letters (that still exists today). We had racked up a long list of uncannily accurate economic forecasts by the time Agora Financial became an independent LLC in 2004.

Throughout our history, we’ve consistently beaten the mainstream financial media to the punch. Our readers were aware of the tech bubble, the housing bubble, the credit bubble, the excesses underlying the Panic of ’08, the pending collapse of Lehman Bros. and the rise of cryptocurrency well before they happened — and in many cases, were able to prosper while other investors got blindsided.
