I am retired and have time to share my views on society. I am open to any suggestions as to how to do so, and what people would most like to see and discuss. What I hope to eventually achieve with this site is an educational conduit to views that are no longer fashionable. I would like it to be a two-way pipe, hearing from others regarding issues and ideas. The site will deal primarily with Finance, Economics and Politics. It is not an investment advice site, but thoughts that may or may not be beneficial to investors may be offered. My background includes corporate and academic endeavors. In the corporate world, I performed mostly as Chief Financial Officer for several companies. Academically, I have advanced degrees in both Finance and Economics, including the terminal PhD degree. My academic training included in-depth exposure to both Keynesian and Monetarist economics. I have taught Finance and Economics at the graduate level. Real world experience led me to Austrian Economics which I have studied for the past quarter century. This branch of economics, in my opinion, best represents how economies behave. Its neglect by policy makers is a chief reason for our economic problems, and why most policy responses are harmful rather than helpful.
