Statement of Purpose
The Fiscal Times (TFT) is digital news, opinion and media service devoted to comprehensive quality reporting on vital fiscal, budgetary, health care and economic issues. TFT strives to become one of the most trusted sources of news, opinion, and research on fiscal policy 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. It also publishes curated content from its partners, including The Washington Post, CNBC, Business Insider, and Kaiser Health News, and research data important to understanding government policy and economics.
The publication is part of a new era of independently supported non-partisan journalism, and emerges in part from the increased demand for ongoing news coverage of fiscal policy in the wake of one of the worst recessions in history. TFT works to present fair, accurate and balanced reporting and serve as an honest broker in sorting through a broad range of viewpoints.
The senior editors of The Fiscal Times have sole responsibility for the selection, editing and display of articles, graphics, illustrations and video that appear on the site. The editorial staff operates from offices in New York and the National Press Building in Washington, D.C.
The Fiscal Times has been organized as a limited liability company (LLC) and is owned and funded by Peter G. Peterson.
