Contributor

Ralph Jennings lived in Beijing for seven years as a writer, editor, student, teacher and consumer. Originally from Portland, Oregon, Jennings has covered financial markets in Asia since 2008. His news reports often examine markets from a macro-policy angle on behalf of individual traders as well as institutional investors. In his view, China is a volatile country that can be understood only by watching it closely week in, week out, followed by analysis mixed with hands-on perspectives. He currently lives in Taipei, where he covers general and financial news in East Asia and studies for a master's degree. He also watches China from the unique perspective of Taiwan's traditional Chinese society with its unique economic and political experience.
