Pragmatic Capitalism is an educational website for investors that provides relevant news and indicators as well as a forum for authors and readers to comment on markets, public policy and economics. Founder Cullen Roche publishes regular commentary on various topics, with his primary areas of expertise being global macro portfolio construction, quantitative risk management, behavioral finance and monetary policy. Roche is a long-time economics writer on the popular financial website Seeking Alpha and was named one of the top Wall Street economists, experts and opinion leaders of 2011 by Wall Street economists. His writings are based on the Monetary Realism description of our monetary system.
Pragmatic Capitalism was launched during the 2008 financial crisis. Roche believes that there were many indicators that led up to the crisis and that the U.S. government was slow to react to the issues arising. Along with the collaboration of other financial experts and authors, Roche uses Pragmatic Capitalism as a channel to discuss the current state of the economy, with an eye toward helping prevent or better handle any future crises. The research used in Pragmatic Capitalism is based on market psychology, which emphasizes market inefficiency. With this methodology in mind, Pragmatic Capitalism provides individual investors with risk management structures that can help them try to achieve higher absolute returns.
