Steve Keen

I've added a new person to the "Smartypants Hall of Fame" on the right Steve Keen is an Economist in Sydney, Australia. He is "post-Keynesian" and has publicly clashed with Paul Krugman from the New York Times. He wrote a book, Debunking Economics, that is a scathing critique of current economic theory. I will be working with him on his open-source dynamic economy modeling software, Minsky.

Capital Account with Lauren Lyster

Capital Account with Lauren Lyster is a new show on RT (aka "Russia Today"). I can't say enough good things about it. The guests are fantastic. If you do one thing to keep on top of the economy, WATCH THIS SHOW . . . and read my blog . . . OK two things ;-). You can subscribe to it on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/user/CapitalAccount

I'm baaaaaack

I just retired from Wall Street and will resume blogging. I'm pretty much just invested in gold until the whole system resets. I realized that with all my risky gyrations with shorting stocks and trading options I would have done just as well just buying gold. Spread the word that Voltron is back!
