Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)

I am retired from Fresno County. I like to blog and comment on financial matters. I knew of the housing bubble in late 2005, way before Cramer. I believe that the central banking establishment set up excessive and damaging credit vehicles both for investors and for borrowers. Investors were swindled but no one goes to jail. Borrowers were given so much easy money that the loans themselves pushed the value of houses up to unsustainable heights. It is worthwhile to "fight" the lending abuses peacefully, with education and through legal means where possible.
I am not an investment counselor nor am I an attorney so my views are not to be considered investment advice. It seems from my understanding of the economy, that folks who fight the Fed are fighting a force that is powerful, capable of keeping interest rates low, etc.
Ellen Brown is an attorney, president of the Public Banking Institute, and the author of twelve books. Shedeveloped her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In "Web of Debt," she turned those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and “the money trust.” She showed how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back. In "The Public Bank Solution," her latest book, she explores the public banking model globally and historically as an equitable and efficient solution to our banking woes. Her earlier books focused on the pharmaceutical cartel that gets its power from “the money trust.” They include "Forbidden Medicine," "Nature’s Pharmacy" (co-authored with Dr. Lynne Walker), and "The Key to Ultimate Health" (co-authored with Dr. Richard Hansen). Her websites are www.webofdebt.com, www.publicbanksolution.com and www.ellenbrown.com.

POLEMICAL ECONOMICS & THE HISTORY OF IDEAS (NEW SCHOOL)
Born 1867 in Glasgow, Scotland? In Back To Long Ago! Barks shows that Scrooge seems to be the rebirth of the 16th century sea captain Matey McDuck.
The richest Duck in the world. One might say that if Cornelius Coot was the founder of the 19th century town called Duckburg, Scrooge McDuck was indeed the founder of the 20th century city with the same name. Since he owns 99% of the city it has in practice become "McDuckburg".
Scrooge earned his first dime as a 10 year old in 1877. 3 years later in 1880, he left for America as a 13 year old. In 1898, after a lot of adventures he finally ended up in Klondike. There he found a golden rock at the size of a goose egg. The next year he reached his first $1.000.000 and bought the deed for Killmule Hill from Casey Coot, the son of Clinton Coot and grandson of Cornelius Coot.
He finally ended up in Duckburg in 1902. After some dramatic events where he faced both the Beagle Boys and president Roosevelt and his "Rough Riders" at the same time, he teared down the rest of the old fort Duckburg and raised his famous Money Bin at the same site.
In the years to follow, Uncle Scrooge travelled all around the world in order to increase his fortune. During these and his previous travels he learned a lot of different languages from all parts of the world. Meanwhile his family ran the Money Bin. Ca. 1908 Miss Emily Quackfaster was hired as Scrooges secretary.
When Scrooge finally returned to Duckburg in 1930 he found himself the richest man in the world. He had however changed. The new $crooge McDuck was tough and hostile toward his surroundings. Thus his own family left him.
In 1942 McDuck closed down his empire and retired to a big house totally unlike his previous (and later) style, in Duckburg.
On Christmas day in 1947 he finally met his nephew Donald Duck again together with the grand nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck. In the next 20 years to follow he and his nephews experienced more great adventures than ever before.
After returning to public life in 1947 Uncle Scrooge has also fought an endless struggle to keep his fortune and to remain the richest man in the world. After 1947 The Beagle Boys have constituted a continuous threat to his fortune and counter-parts as Flintheart Glomgold and Rockerduck have tried all kind of tricks to pass old Scrooge in wealth and success. In addition to this the Italian witch Magica De Spell has since ca. 1960 chased Scrooges number one dime without any success. So far Scrooge has succeeded well in his struggle, but there is never much time to rest before the next battle...
According to Don Rosa Uncle Scrooge died in 1967 a 100 years old, from still unknown causes.
In an interview with the Norwegian "Aftenposten" from 1992 Don Rosa says that "in the beginning Scrooge earned his existence to his nephew Donald, but that has changed and today it's Donald that earns his existence to Scrooge" and he also says that this is one of the reasons why he is so interested in Scrooge
