As the old Ma Bell used to urge us back in the long ago, “Reach out and touch someone” – and by that I specifically mean me.

Share you thoughts and questions at I will do my best to respond, and probably politely.

And hit me up/follow me on one of the links to the right – Twitter or LinkedIn … or both.

Caveat emptor: I am passionate about that in which I believe, particularly as it relates to the myriad ways that politicians of all stripes – and central bankers – undermine the American Dream, weaken the economy and our personal liberties, and spew unmitigated hypocrisy across the land. So do not be offended if I skewer a politician for whom you are fond. Just know that I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican, and that I am an equal opportunity curmudgeon who relishes the chance to wrap into an investment/economic context the lunacy/hypocrisy the spills forth from D.C. … and please realize that I do so only because I truly believe America is better than the people we elect these days.
