SEATTLE -- EconoMonitor, an online community of informed commentary on global financial, economic and geopolitical news, is now expanding its reach on the new digital media platform Maven (ticker symbol MVEN).

“Our goal is to be a world-class macroeconomic, community-based portal,” said Editor-in-Chief Ash Bennington. “Maven allows us to achieve this mission through the platform’s ability to encourage two-way discussions and contributions by members. It’s a win win.”

Led by seasoned economic and media experts Bennington and CEO Norman Wetmore, EconoMonitor features researched articles, predictions and analyses of global economic events.

EconoMonitor joins dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations who make up Maven’s coalition of elite content channels. In addition, EconoMonitor joins Maven’s growing finance and economics category that includes live channels operated by Brad Thomas, Bob Brooks, Sean Hyman, Neale Godfrey, Paul Krake and Mish Shedlock.

“From the onset we have focused on developing strong categories on Maven, driven by thought-provoking, expert publishers with engaging content,” said Maven CEO James Heckman. “We’re pleased to welcome EconoMonitor to Maven’s strong financial and economic cohort.”
