Quote from Deborah

"It's very satisfying to give readers the information they need on market-moving headlines and trends. I also enjoy pulling the curtain back on how companies operate, whether it's how they deal with proposed legislation or public perception. Large corporations occupy such an important place in markets and our culture generally, it's important to condense the complicated information that's out there and provide context and insight."
