Roger Lowenstein is one of the country’s most prominent financial journalists and the bestselling author of five books. Raised in New York, Lowenstein began his career with stints at two small newspapers, first in Virginia and then overseas in Caracas, Venezuela. In 1979, he joined The Wall Street Journal as a staff reporter. From 1989 to 1991, he wrote the Journal’s signature Heard on the Street stock market column. Later, he authored a new column for the Journal, Intrinsic Value.
Since the 1990s, Lowenstein has focused on book writing and also written extensively for national magazines. His previous books include Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist, When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long-term Capital Management, Origins of the Crash, and While America Aged: How Pension Debts Ruined General Motors, Stopped the NYC Subways, Bankrupted San Diego, and Loom as the Next Financial Crisis. In reviewing While America Aged, Jeff Madrick, writing in The New York Times Book Review, said “Lowenstein is one of the nation’s most talented business writers, with a particular ability to make obscure financial issues clear as the morning light.”
Lowenstein is now a columnist for Bloomberg and he also writes for The New York Times Magazine and other publications.
