Matt Dale has been running a successful ponzi scheme since he was 12 years old, but has not taken on new clients for the last six years. He received his Ph.D. in Excel graphs from Pyongyang University (online classes). He did his thesis on the merits of using import wizard instead of manually entering data. His work was sent to the Institute of Economic Research via first-class mail, and was probably read by someone. In 2001, Mr. Dale decided to sell his great-great uncle's silver stockpile and invest the money in the S&P 500 and Berkshire Hathaway. He has since been soundly outperformed by the inanimate object. Since that time, he has become much more contrarian in his investment outlook. One example includes buying first-class tickets on the Titanic for pennies on the Dollar. The Titanic's performance has been trading in a range for the last 99 years, but Mr. Dale believes it has met resistance at its bottom and is possibly poised for an upward trend. Matt Dale lives in Shanghai and posts on his blog: "Mao Money, Mao Problems."
