Felix Salmon
Chief Financial Correspondent, Axios | Host, Slate Money Podcast
Behavioral Economics
Felix Salmon is widely admired as one of the most insightful commentators on the finance world today. He combines an outsider’s willingness to speak truth to power with an insider’s understanding of how to make power actually listen. He is well known for tackling subjects from regulation to derivatives with a zest and a sense of fun unusual in financial writing.

In his new book, The Phoenix Economy: Work, Life, and Money I the NewNot Normal, Salmon examines the critical aspects of our lives that have been transformed into three parts: Time and Space, Mind and Body, and Business and Pleasure. Salmon’s keen observations on everything from meme stocks to lobster rolls are backed by a deep understanding of financial markets and the quirks of human behavior.

Felix is Chief Financial Correspondent at Axios, an online news and information website that delivers ‘smart, efficient news worthy of your time, attention, and trust.’He writes news stories that drive the business world for the AxiosEdgeweeklynewsletter.

This experience allows Felix to bring a practitioner's insight to finance, technology, digital media, and the internet. His groundbreaking intelligent financial analysis is seeing a wider and younger audience, using animation, videos, data visualization, and more. Viral sharing; the relationship of text and images online; the future of news, criticism, and taste-making — Felix speaks on all of these with great acumen.

He has written for Roubini Global Economics, Conde Nast Portfolio (where he originated the MarketMoversfinancial blog), and most recently, Reuters, where his work was awarded numerous accolades, including the Loeb Award. His work also has appeared in a variety of print publications, including Wired, The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Euromoney magazine.
