Welcome to Money Distilled. I’m John Stepek. Every weekday I look at the biggest developments in the world of markets and economics, and explain exactly what it all means for your money.

I want to hear from you, so send your feedback, opinions or questions to me at I plan to print the best comments every Friday, so if you’d rather I didn’t consider you for publication, then please make that clear, or else I’ll assume you’re happy to see your name (or email pseudonym) in lights.
