My name is Rod Dubitsky. I am a professional with nearly 30 years experience in financial services and global economic development. I have over 25 years experience in the for-profit financial services industry and 5 years full-time experience in global development/poverty relief (nearly 10 years including volunteer/board roles).

While working in finance, I was a top ranked analyst for Credit Suisse in the consumer finance space and led the advisory analytics division with Pimco with responsibility for some of the largest post-financial crisis bailout consulting engagements.

I am currently working as a consultant and two startups. One of which you are reading now.

Why the People’s Economist? The name derives from two of my favorite sources of information: The Economist magazine and A People’s History, by Howard Zinn. Though ostensibly about economics, the Economist is, in fact, a very credible, balanced source of both economics and current events more generally. Such was the goal of this website. Howard Zinn’s book is a an alternate history of the US, written from the people’s perspective.

I hope this website serves as a hub for the 99% who desire a credible, balanced source of information covering finance. I will add, over time, comprehensive financial analytics and financial literacy training.
