I have been an economics and finance professor for the past 25 years at Kalamazoo College, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I invest only for my personal account as a part-time investor. My bachelors degree is in economics from Kalamazoo College. My masters degree, MBA, is in general management from Dartmouth College, and my doctorate is in finance from Nova Southeastern University. Although my passion is real assets, I often use the markets as proxy investments for real asset plays or to hedge real asset plays. With regard to financial assets, my investing activity is limited to predominately domestic value oriented stocks. I live full time in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
