Martin Hutchinson

Martin Hutchinson is the author of "Great Conservatives" (Academica Press, 2005) which examines the British governments of 1783-1830.

He was formerly Business and Economics Editor at United Press International.

Martin's weekly column, The Bear’s Lair is intended to appear each Monday, an appropriately gloomy day of the week. Its rationale is that the proportion of "sell" recommendations put out by Wall Street houses remains far below that of “buy” recommendations. Accordingly, investors have an excess of positive information and very little negative information. The column thus takes the ursine view of life and the market, in the hope that it may be usefully different from what investors see elsewhere.
