WHO IS “WHERE’S OUR MONEY?”
Marty Berg, the editor of “Where’s Our Money,” is a veteran journalist, most recently columnist and editor for the Daily Journal in California, the largest newspaper for lawyers and judges in the country.

WHAT IS “WHERE’S OUR MONEY?”
Berg and Rosenfield created “Where’s Our Money?” in response to the financial crisis of 2008, and the unprecedented public bailout of the banking system. “Where’s Our Money” advocates for a stronger injection the spirit and practice of democracy into our economic debate.
“Where’s Our Money” focuses on how we got here, who’s responsible, where we go from here, and how we get there.
We’ve scrutinized efforts at financial reform and the on-going deficit debate. We’ll continue to examine proposals that are being ignored inside the Beltway and the big media bubble.
Over the past decade, we’ve seen up close the negative impact of the intense financial pressure on traditional media. Too much of the financial press continues to play the role of cheerleader for the titans of business, rather than as a watchdog to ferret out irresponsible behavior, or to raise questions about whether an economy based on finance is sustainable. We’ve also seen the tremendous explosion of sources of information on the Internet. “Where’s Our Money” aims to help readers sift through the flood of information, opinions and documents, tweets and posts, highlighting those that provide insight into here we’ve been and where we’re headed.
