BA in economics from UConn. MBA in finance from Wharton. Worked as securities analyst and portfolio manager for an insurance company and a bank from 1960 through 1983. Retired at age of 53. Private investor from then until now. I am 86 years young. I like to write poetry and short stories. And, I am the Chief Inspector of Sunrises and Sunsets on Earth (self appointed).
I invest for a living. I like to collect data and graph it and analyze it. I learn math for fun.
I try not to become too attached to my ideas, so I like to imagine that my models of how the world works is populated by variables, not constants, that can change.
I believe that efficient economies are most productive and the most fertile ground for achievement for a people.
I focus much on cycles of various types, why they occur, their histories and the cycles most relevant to us now.
The most important non-religious book I've read is Strauss & Howe's The Fourth Turning, which may be more than 10 years old, but I had waited all my life for someone to write about generational cycles.
