Claude Marx has been a reporter for FTCWatch since February 2013 and during that time has written about a range of subjects such as the implications of certain mergers on consumers, the regulation of advertising and attempts by Congress to overhaul the patent system. He also writes regularly for MLex.
Before that, Claude spent four years writing about the impact of legislation and regulations on community banks and credit unions as the Washington reporter for Credit Union Times. During that time, which coincided with the financial crisis, Claude covered the government's rescue of some of the financially troubled wholesale credit unions, which had the potential to bring down the entire credit union system.
He earned his bachelor's degree from Washington University in St. Louis and did graduate work at Georgetown University.
