Jason Zweig became a personal finance columnist for The Wall Street Journal in 2008.  He was a senior writer for Money magazine and a guest columnist for Time magazine and CNN.com. He is the author of Your Money and Your Brain (Simon & Schuster, 2007), one of the first books to explore the neuroscience of investing. Zweig is also the editor of the revised edition of Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor (HarperCollins, 2003), the classic text that Warren Buffett has described as “by far the best book about investing ever written.”

Before joining Money in 1995, Zweig was the mutual funds editor at Forbes. Earlier, he had been a reporter-researcher for the Economy & Business section of Time and an editorial assistant at Africa Report, a bimonthly journal. Zweig has a B.A. from Columbia College, where he was awarded a John Jay National Scholarship. He also spent a year studying Middle Eastern history and culture at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.

A frequent commentator on television and radio, Zweig is also a popular public speaker who has addressed the American Association of Individual Investors, the Aspen Institute, the CFA Institute, the Morningstar Investment Conference, and university audiences at Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford.

Zweig was for many years a trustee of the Museum of American Finance, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. He serves on the editorial boards of Financial History magazine and The Journal of Behavioral Finance. Jason Zweig is not related to the late money manager Martin E. Zweig.
