Gene Epstein Biography:
A frequent speaker on the conference circuit, Epstein has appeared on National Public Radio, CNBC, CNN, BBC TV, and FOX. His book, ECONOSPINNING: How to Read Between the Lines When the Media Manipulate the Numbers, was published in August, 2006 by John Whiley.
Assuming no prior knowledge on the reader’s part, each chapter of ECONOSPINNING is structured around fairly simple propositions about the economy or about specific economic data; from tracking employment numbers to measuring corporate profitability, that are often contrasted with the distortions of today’s media coverage. Epstein has won much appraisal on Wall Street for his straightforward approach to dissecting the truth from everyday media publications and broadcasts, and has been further noted for his work in ECONOSPINNING.
A strong speaker, Epstein captures his audiences with his honest and eye-opening approach to the stories that are spun by everyday media. A former senior economist at the New York Stock Exchange, Epstein graduated with a BA from Brandeis and went on to continue at the New School where he earned his MA in Economics. Epstein has also taught economics at St. John’s University and the City University of New York.
