  Darrell Delamaide
Professional/Personal Overview
  Explaining economics and finance to a wider public is my forte after a career covering business, banking, politics and government regulation.

This is the focus of my current columns for USA Today and MarketWatch, commenting on money and power in Washington, Wall Street and Europe.

My background includes staff positions at Dow Jones, Bloomberg, Institutional Investor as well as editorial management at AOL and other print and online media.

I have published four books – two nonfiction and two novels -- and have used this experience for both ghost writing and book editing.

Blogging and social networking are now a key part of the media universe. I can provide the perspective readers are looking for amid a welter of information and help you meet your communication needs in this new environment.
