"Economic Insights is the ultimate resource for bond market analysis, interest rate and economic forecasting."

Economic Insights is produced on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis for subscribers. When you need to know the potential direction of bond yields, interest rates, the housing market, the economy and why they are headed that way, you need to subscribe to Economic Insights from The Financial News & Information Service. The forecasting and the perspectives of Howard Blum and The Financial News & Information Service have been heard and appreciated by many members of the news media, financial industry professionals, investors and members of the real estate industry since the late 1980's.

The personalized newsletters for businesses and individuals in loan originating, wholesale lending, title and escrow, real estate sales and related industries are considered by many to be some of the best available today. If your business could use a 'content driven' newsletter as a marketing piece that takes complex economic concepts and explains them in simple to follow terms without using 'econo-babble', you should become a private label subscriber.

If you are a banker, mortgage banker, investment professional, individual investor, home loan originator, mortgage broker, title & escrow marketing representative or a real estate professional, you need the newsletters from the Financial News & Information Service and the information in the publications Economic Insights™ and the Private Label newsletters to enhance the quality of the marketing you send to your clients, customers, prospects or to help you manage your own investments with perspective not heard in the mainstream press.
