Zugzwang (German for "compulsion to move") is a situation found in chess wherein one player is put at a disadvantage because they must make a move when they would prefer to pass and not to move. The fact that the player is compelled to move means that his position will become significantly weaker. A player is said to be "in zugzwang" when any possible move will worsen his position.

I currently manage individual portfolios and provide advice for family and friends. My style is a concentrated value-investing style, similar to Warren Buffett, Prem Watsa, Bruce Berkowitz, and Mohnish Pabrai.
Building wealth intelligently and patiently is the most logical and tested route to financial independence.
That is my plan and so far, so good!

I am an investor, entrepreneur, and forecaster of economic trends. I graduated in 2008 with a degree in History from Columbia University right around the time of the housing crisis. Instead of doing my schoolwork, I would carry around and study 10 books at a time about investing. Then I would warn anyone within earshot of the impending crisis.
I created Expected Returns in 2009 to offer a fresh perspective on economics and investing that isn’t clouded by the flawed theory so often taught in school. I believe we are at a critical turning point in history that is under-appreciated. As of this writing in late 2014, a major sovereign debt crisis has yet to sweep the globe. I think that’s about to change.
