He continues to blog about a variety of topics, and writes regular business feature articles and cover stories for Idealog Magazine. Hall covers macroeconomics, technology, energy, agriculture and emerging markets.
"I love the intelligence and quality of Minyanville's content," said Hall. "But just as important, I admire how Minyanville communicates with its audience.
