Work Experience

CEO
Monetary Metals
May 2012 - Present (10 years 8 months)

Monetary Metals is the pioneer of gold investments. An investment is an asset bought with the expectation of a yield. We developed and manage a fund that provides a yield on gold, paid in gold. This is the first true gold investment since the 1930’s. Investors in this fund are high net worth individuals, family offices, funds, and institutions. The company also publishes analysis of the gold, silver and credit markets.

This is my theory.

My dissertation.

I prove that all government interventions necessarily reduce the ability of people to coordinate their actions in the market. Also examine the regime of the irredeemable debt-based dollar, and show how it's failing including several indicators.
