  Darrell Delamaide
Professional/Personal Overview
  My long career in business journalism has prepared me to take on any assignment, whether explaining economics and finance to a wider public or delving into specialized topics for a professional audience.

The focus of my current columns for USA Today and MarketWatch is on money and power in Washington, Wall Street and Europe. I also write a monthly column on U.S. monetary policy for a financial institutions newsletter.

Other recent assignments range from personal finance topics for Northern Virginia magazine and the National Education Association member website, to long features for trade publications like Corporate Secretary (corporate governance), The Secured Lender (commercial finance), and Transmission and Distribution World (electric utility).

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.
