Twitter: top 5 finance experts worth following

These days we’re all time poor, deafened by a cacophony of strident views on the financial markets. Creating a list on twitter can help keep you focused the people with genuine and valuable insights.

The 5 people below are worth following on twitter: they’ll provide an antidote to most of the consensus views that are ubiquitous in the mainstream media.

If you want to get insight, contrarian of course, into financial markets, here are the top 5 people you should follow:

 

Professor Steve Keen
@ProfSteveKeen

He is an economist who predicted the Great Recession. Unlike most conventional economists he understands the the role debt plays in an economy. Steve Keen’s most recent interview with Every Investor is here:

 

Mitch Feierstein
@PlanetPonzi

The author of Planet Ponzi he is both engaging and amusing. He provides razor sharp comment and insight into the shenanigans of the political-financial clique running the Ponzi banking system.

 

Marc Faber
@MarcFaberblog

An investor and economist, known as ‘Dr Doom’,  he gives great macro investing insights. Read our interview with Marc Faber.

 

Jim Rogers
@AllJimRogers

This legendary investor is a 100% contrarian who isn’t afraid to stand out from the crowd. Read Jim Rogers on the Greek debacle.

 

Stacy Herbert
@stacyherbert

The calmer half of the indomitable team that presents the Keiser Report (apologies Max). She combines political analysis with economic insight while dealing with Max Keiser’s slapstick antics.

 

Admittedly, 5 isn’t many, so I’ve had to leave some great people out.

Let me know what you think of my suggestions. If you have any of your own, please post them here or let me know.
