Biography

Client Testimonials

"Wolf is not afraid to express a sharp point of view, thoroughly backed up with fact. His depth of knowledge on politics, economics and environmental issues is striking, and it gives his writing a calm authority. His tone is pragmatic in the best way—firm but not strident, convincing but never shrill. And he does more than criticise—he also offers well-thought-out solutions.”
