Statement of Purpose
The Fiscal Times (TFT) is a digital news, opinion and media service offering comprehensive quality reporting on vital fiscal policy, economic and consumer issues. TFT has become one of the most trusted sources of economic analysis and its effects on the country at large, including business and consumers.
The Fiscal Times is an editorially independent enterprise, written, edited and produced by experienced professional journalists, that provides an array of original reporting and analysis. Through three core content channels—policy and politics, business and economy, and life and money—the publication focuses on how fiscal policy affects business and consumers and how business and consumer behavior influences government fiscal policy. The site's news coverage also tracks the Presidency, Congress and the Federal Reserve, and U.S. business as part of a global economic system. TFT’s content partners include The Washington Post, Yahoo Finance and Yahoo News, CNBC, MSN Money, Bloomberg, 24/7 Wall Street, Kaiser Health News, and others.
The publication is part of a new era of independently supported non-partisan journalism, and emerges in part from the increased demand for fair, accurate and balanced reporting. TFT serves as an honest broker in sorting through a broad range of viewpoints. The editorial staff operates from offices in New York City and the National Press Building in Washington, D.C.
TFT has been organized as a limited liability company (LLC) and is owned and funded by Peter G. Peterson.
