• OPEC's Oil Production Game: What to Watch Out For Tuesday, 7 Jun 2011 | 2:32 PM ET

    So if OPEC trumpets a 1.5 million barrel rise in daily output, is this just an admission of what’s going on anyway or is this new oil? If it’s the latter, then that is meaningful. If it’s the former, don’t get too excited.

    German banks, Spanish farmers, Greek debt - what should Germany finance next? Answer: None of the above. End of discourse, writes CNBC's Silvia Wadhwa.

  • Economists: Are 50 Worth More Than 1? Monday, 6 Jun 2011 | 6:39 AM ET

    At the world economic forum in 2009 one leading economist told me he was perplexed. Why would an economist be perplexed as the world economy teetered on the brink you ask? Well it had nothing to do with the state of the global economy and everything to do with supply and demand.

  • Scott Cohn: CNBC's Voice, Personality, Soul Friday, 27 May 2011 | 9:58 AM ET

    When CNBC started, Mark gave us a sense of stability and security.  Six years later, in 1995, Mark gave CNBC what it needed most: its voice. Its personality. On the premiere of Squawk Box that year, Mark promised "a program like you've never seen before." Boy, did he have that right.

  • John Harwood: We Could All Learn From His Example Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:36 PM ET

    I learned an important lesson from Mark Haines as I embarked on a TV career five years ago after a quarter-century in print. It was the value of authenticity.  On TV, Mark was the same person that he was off the air.

  • Bob Pisani: Death Like a Thunderclap on NYSE Floor Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:35 PM ET

    While I was waiting for the elevator to go back to my office from the NYSE floor this morning, the CEO of Heinz, Bill Johnson, came over to say hello. "I'm sorry about your loss," he said. "Mark was a great lover of ketchup, and a great lover of Heinz products." He was indeed. His death came like a thunderclap on the NYSE floor.

  • Larry Kudlow: He Called Me 'Lawrence of America' Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:29 PM ET

    For years I worked with Mark Haines on Squawk Box, usually Friday mornings as a guest or guest host. We go back a long way. He called me 'Lawrence of America.' The nickname stuck. I loved it. Like every one I was stunned to hear the unspeakably bad news this morning.

  • Jonathan Wald: Our Shared Weakness for Snacks Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:27 PM ET

  • Matt Quayle, Executive Producer, Squawk Box Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:22 PM ET

    He taught me how to decifer the news and then showed me how to bundle it all together into one special package. That package became Squawk Box.

  • Mark Haines: Jeffrey Sonnenfeld Remembers Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:07 PM ET
    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    Through him, I learned how to stop speaking in paragraphs and pages in the pathological way most academics communicate. Instead, he forced informality, crispness, and candor. He pretended to be a “young curmudgeon” but was really a revolutionary with his rare, unscripted authenticity.

  • Mark Haines: Hugh Johnson Remembers Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 3:59 PM ET
    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    I will fondly remember our many “chats” on the set in the early morning hours and his curmudgeonly humor. He was the first (and I suspect the last) to call me “Cautiously Cautious Hugh” in the tradition of Damon Runyon.

  • CEO NBCUniversal and Executive VP, Comcast Steve Burke Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 3:28 PM ET

    A fixture on CNBC since the network's beginning and a welcome daily presence to countless loyal viewers, Mark brought to his work a wonderful mix of intelligence and gruff charm. He helped define not only CNBC but the entire genre of televised business news.

    As a newcomer to CNBC, friends and acquaintances eagerly asked about all the personalities that make up the network, Mark Haines being front of mind. They wanted to know the story behind the American-flag tie, how tall he was in person, and whether I would mind telling him hello from a devoted viewer.
