“Danielle DiMartino Booth served as my eyes and ears on the Street when I was President and CEO of the Dallas Fed. I relied on her ability to mine intelligence from her diverse network. Danielle was gifted in reading between the lines to discern what wasn’t being said.  I value her insight to this day.”

– Richard Fisher, Former President and CEO The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

“Danielle entered the Dallas Fed armed with knowledge and access to data that no one else had nor thought to obtain. That knowledge made her a valuable asset, which then allowed her to gain an understanding of how the Fed works from the inside. I’m not aware of anyone else having this combination of experiences, which gives her the ability to provide powerful commentary on financial markets that are unlike anything else I’ve found.”
Randy Woodward

Managing Director, Fixed Income Capital Markets

“Although I am constantly overwhelmed with an onslaught of macroeconomic research, I make it a point to read Danielle’s work each week. Her unique perspectives gained working for the Federal Reserve– are invaluable.  All serious investors should read her work on a regular basis.”
David Hay

Cheif Investment Officer, Evergreen Gavekal

“In Venture Capital, much value is created by a correct contrarian notion about the future.  Danielle is the ultimate “outsider’s insider,” and her concise analysis of the pulse of the economy helps me gauge when to zig when others zag.”
Jonathan Crowder

Partner, Intelis Capital

Danielle’s reports are among the best i’ve ever seen – in terms of quality, variety and frequency – and i’ve seen a lot over the years. She takes you deep into the issues, to help you understand the nuances, so that you can make up your own mind.  Danielle has a view, of course, and she is happy to share it.  Far more valuable is her willingness to share the underlying concepts and facts that led her to that view – including her doubts and caveats – so that you can form your own opinion.  That almost never happens in this industry.  Quill Intelligence truly is a #researchrevolution.
