I am a former investment advisor and owner of several businesses, and consequently everything related to business - including investing, macro-economics, and emerging products and services come under my research and interests radar. The most interesting and important to me are the entertainment industry, commodities, BRICs, and the impact of loose money policies on businesses and investors. These days I invest only for myself, while continuing to write on a variety of financial and economic topics.
