SedonaSteve is author, Stephen Reiss.

  • BA in Economics, NYU, 1971
  • JD, St. John’s Law School, 1974
  • Attorney for 4 years specializing in federal contract litigation and real estate.
  • Investment advisor for 20 years


For 8 years Mr. Reiss was a radio talk show host on economic and financial issues for a Jacksonville, Florida radio station.  The show was called “Dollars and Uncommon Sense” because common sense is rare in both DC and on Wall St.  I ventured where Rush Limbaugh feared to tread.

Currently he is writing the next great American novel and an economics textbook.  Some of the material posted in this blog is from this upcoming textbook.
