Agora traces its beginnings back to three noteworthy financial publications: Strategic Investment (1984), Plague of the Black Debt (1992), and the Daily Reckoning (1999). The Daily Reckoning was one of the first daily financial e-letters — that was free — that still exists today. In that time frame, Agora had accumulated quite a long list of accurate, yet unprecedented economic forecasts by the point that Agora Financial had become an independent LLC in 2004.
Addison Wiggin, who is the executive publisher at Agora Financial, is a New York Times best-selling writer and considered as a key force behind the highly acclaimed documentary film I.O.U.S.A. At Agora Financial, their editorial team is always trying to challenge the traditional media publishing companies by offering insightful, yet irreverent opinions where others are fearful to go.
