Since he published his article on the "World Currency Unit" in World Economy, he has been working to perfect this "indexed unit of account." Daily quotations of this unit in alternative currencies is now available at http://www.ln.edu.hk/cpps/wcu/index.htm (http://www.ln.edu.hk/cpps/wcu/index.htm). He argues that commodity prices should be quoted in this "indexed unit of account," which represents a unit of global real purchasing power, rather than the US dollar. His earlier article in World Economy argues that having bonds denominated in the World Currency Unit will improve the efficiency of global capital markets as it will make real interest rates more transparent. He has published a number of books, including Public Policy and the Public Interest(Routledge), Psychology and Economics of Happiness, Health Policy and the Public Interest, APEC and the Rise of China(World Scientific), Exchange Rate Regimes and Macroeconomic Stability(Kluwer Academic Publishers); China, Hong Kong, and the World Economy (joint editor, Palgrave-Macmillan, 2006). He was president of the Hong Kong Economic Association 1999-2007.
I am currently a Junior at the George Washington University and have been investing since the sixth grade with my own money. I am very interested in the pharmaceutical sectors, but will buy just about any stock if I feel that the company is undervalued. I hope to provide some helpful insight, and to in turn learn a lot from the rest of the investment community.

I'm a trader who trades both short-term and long-term. I started my career as a day-trader for a trading firm, but then turned to longer time frames and went on my own to manage my portfolio.
I use technical analysis as well as fundamental analysis in my research.
I was trained as a lawyer and practiced in the fields of corporate law and bank regulation in large U.S. firms for 20 years, then decided to do other things. My career has included banking and being an entrepreneur. For seven years I was CEO of a high-tech sports business. I have retired from active business and spend full-time writing, mostly on economic subjects.
My books include:
High Rollers: Inside the S&L Debacle (1991)
Debt Spiral: How Credit Failed Capitalism (2009)
Practical Handbook for Bank Directors (1995), second edition due 2012
Corporate Governance for Public Company Directors (2003)
Self-taught investor based in NYC. I completed my undergraduate studies at Stanford University and have lived in Japan, China as well as the United States. I've worked as a reporter, freelance writer, copyeditor, filmmaker, and educator. I believe that investing requires thoughtful analysis (qualitative as well as quantitative) and proper due diligence.
As an investor, I am focused on turn-around stories as well as undervalued growth companies. As a contributor, my goal is to provide thoughtful analysis of companies that lack sufficient coverage and are unloved by Wall Street.
I believe that understanding the limit of one's circle of competence is one of the most important principles of investing.

I like exposing Penny Stock Pump and Dumps. Most of my research is done to help good hard working people avoid being scammed into investing in a pump and dump. Share the reports to show Seeking Alpha they are worth publishing this kind of information to help people avoid losing money in pump and dumps.
Taken all the coursework for the CFP, but a calling in the public sector had me set those ambitions aside. A few years later, I decided to shake the cobwebs off of that library of knowledge and take a look at investing money that had been saved up.
I enjoy the constant hunt for information and news. Working nights has me sitting at my computer wasting time on my nights off. I decided this might be a little more profitable if I redirected my efforts towards investing. I think that with the right information, people can always make the right choices, but sometimes the market doesn't agree...
