About Vivek Kaul

About Ajit Dayal

Vivek Kaul is a widely published economic commentator. Some people even regard him as Twitter’s favourite economist.


Maybe because he has a very simple and lucid style of expressing his thoughts on economics and finance.

Or maybe just because he makes investing in stock markets easy for retail investors by providing jargon-free opinions on the broader economy.

Either way, there are few economists like Vivek. His opinions, though at times controversial, are always backed by rock solid logic and data.

Vivek is often seen writing on the broad contours of managing money.

Before working as a freelance writer, Vivek assumed senior positions at leading financial dailies like the Daily News and Analysis (DNA) and The Economic Times.

Vivek has authored five books namely, the ‘Easy Money’ trilogy, ‘Bad Money-Inside the NPA Mess and How It Threatens the Indian Banking System’, and ‘India’s Big Government-The Intrusive State and How It Is Hurting Us.

To dwell further in Vivek’s thoughts, you can read the archive of Vivek Kaul’s diary.

Alongside being a bestseller author, Vivek can be heard co-hosting the popular economics podcast - Econ Central.

Vivek was a guest on Equitymaster’s Investor Hour Podcast, and has spoken at the Equitymaster annual conference a number of times.
