“Financial markets send messages. One of the great lessons over three decades of work is learning how to heed those messages. What I love about speaking is to share those lessons with audiences so they may be forewarned and forearmed as to future economic, political and geopolitical events.” --RON INSANA Ron Insana was a trailblazer; among the first group of financial journalists who launched the Financial News Network (FNN) in 1984. When FNN merged with CNBC in 1991, Ron continued to cover the most important stories affecting the financial markets as an anchor and correspondent on CNBC and on other NBC news outlets.
