I'm an economic maverick and a political atheist. As an independent businessman, an economic and political historian, and a researcher of trends from a micro to macro perspective, I have developed a system that accurately predicts what will happen in the markets. I use this information to make money. I am not rich and would never want to be. My only goal is personal and economic freedom and to that end I rarely follow "conventional" wisdom. I've done this for my own personal enjoyment and to help support my family. I thought it might be interesting to publish my strategies and observations, so here I am.
