About Me and my Blog
My name is Julien Noizet and I have been working as a financial analyst for several years for various banks and rating agencies, mainly covering the banking sector as well as other non-bank financial institutions in various countries. Before that I used to study engineering, management and finance and have developed a strong interest for monetary economics, financial and economic theory and financial and economic history over the last few years.
The goal of this blog is to reinject some classical liberal, free-market and laissez-faire ideas in today’s debate on banking and finance, in the tradition of thinkers that I admire such as Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, James Buchanan, Milton Friedman, John Stuart Mill, Frédéric Bastiat and Voltaire.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are my own and do not reflect those of any of my previous and current employers.
This blog does not provide any investment advice and only provides a big picture-type analysis of the fundamental mechanics of the financial system and its link to the overall economy.
I also contribute to the Cato Institute’s Alt-M blog.
PS: I am not a native English speaker and I spend little time editing my posts so I apologise if ever my writings don’t always sound natural! 🙂
