Global economics blog MishTalk expands reach on new digital media network Maven

SEATTLE -- Mike “Mish” Shedlock, whose MishTalk.com has been recognized by TIME magazine and others as one of the...

​...nation’s top financial blogs, is now amplifying his global economic analyses and commentary via the expert-driven digital media platform Maven (ticker symbol MVEN).

“I decided to bring MishTalk to Maven because I like their veteran leadership team. All of them, from CEO James Heckman on, have proven themselves in impressive ways in digital media over many years,” said Shedlock. “I believe they will better promote the Mish brand than I can operating independently. The community engagement tools and monetization possibilities alone will be transformative.”

MishTalk focuses on interest rates, gold and precious metals, central bank policy and more. Shedlock is an investment advisor for Sitka Pacific Capital Management near Seattle. His work is based on the Austrian School of Economics theory, which is rooted in the concept of opportunity cost and limited government regulation.

Shedlock is one of dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations who are joining Maven’s coalition of elite content channels. He is the seventh announced partner in the finance & economics category, joining Brad Thomas, Bob Brooks, Sean Hyman, Neale Godfrey, Paul Krake and Clayton Morris .

“The finance network we’re building within our broader coalition of channel partners is exceptional and Mish adds to the luster,” said Heckman. “He brings a highly respected, unique focus to the table -- as well as a devoted audience, which makes for a perfect fit with our Maven business model. Passion lives here.”

Maven is an expert-driven, group media network, whose innovative platform serves, by invitation-only, a coalition of professional, independent channel partners. By providing broader distribution, greater community engagement and efficient advertising and membership programs, Maven enables partners to focus on the key drivers of their business: creating, informing, sharing, discovering, leading and interacting with the communities and constituencies they serve.

Based in Seattle, Maven is publicly traded under the ticker symbol MVEN. The executive team and operational board members include digital media pioneers James Heckman, Ross Levinsohn and Josh Jacobs and technology innovators Bill Sornsin and Ben Joldersma. For more insight, head to themaven.net.
