I've been happily retired for three years after a 30 year career in business and on Wall Street. I’m an avid student of current events and now devote my time to research, writing and tending my family. I’ve had a life-long fascination with markets and have been a private investor throughout my adult life. I believe that free markets and democracy are one in the same, but that freedom is only as constructive as the people exercising it. The people in business I respect are driven pragmatists focused on making their organizations work effectively over the long run. I’m the author of an unpublished book about American business culture. I’m a Chartered Financial Analyst and have an MBA from New York University.
