Musings Anew

Everyday it seems a new technology arises to help us communicate with each other, or conversely, overwhelm us with information without context or usefulness. As Stonehouse Asset Management grows and changes, we continually look at how best to communicate with our clients and friends.

The stamped letter has become often just another piece of paper amongst the pizza and dry cleaning coupons. Now it seems email has increasingly been added to the growing list unwanted pleas for attention.

I have decided to put a toe into the blogosphere. Where clients, friends and perhaps future clients can stop by and at their leisure gather what will hopefully be some clarity and analysis in a world of noise. If there were certainty in the economy and markets CNBC and The Wall Street Journal would have long ago closed shop. Discussion and dissent from readers is invited. Questions you might raise can lead us to other areas of dialogue and keep the discussion not simply a self indulgent exercise, but hopefully of value to readers.

Daily missives will hopefully make it a place for you to land occasionally, and the "edit" function should help me correct content and tone before it becomes etched in permanence to haunt me forever.
