I try not to distinguish between business news and general news. To me, the two are the same . . .
Over the quarter century I've been doing this -- first in print, then in broadcasting, then in print and broadcasting -- I'm amazed at how many people seem to believe that if it's about Wall Street, it's not about Main Street.
I think it's quite the other way around. Wall Street is Main Street.

As the host of Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto" and "Cavuto on Business", Neil Cavuto reports on today's most influential business leaders and newsmakers, from CEOs to politicians -- getting behind the story by connecting with the men and women who made it. And he ends each show with his own personal commentaries -- sometimes witty, often inspiring, and always incisive and thought-provoking. Now, Cavuto collects the best of these essays in one volume, on topics that range from business to family to civility in public life.
Among the essays:
Where Were You on September 10, 2001? . . .
on remembering what America was like before 9/11
We Are What We Eat . . .
on fast food, lawsuits, and personal responsibility
Why I Don't Trust My Uncle Sam . . .
on how the surplus of the 1990s was bound to disappear
Tony Soprano for Fed Chairman . . .
on what Alan Greenspan could learn from the mob
Tips for Empty Nesters . . .
on how to cope when your kids leave you behind
Covering one of the most tumultuous decades in memory -- from the wild and chaotic Clinton years through the sobering challenges of the ongoing War on Terror -- Cavuto's words offer a window onto our America at its best and its worst.
