For a candid look at the world, have a read of some his latest content below.

Markets and economies have their youth, their seasons, and their sell-by dates. We celebrate our birthdays, but our remaining time shrinks. Markets grow old, cranky, and forgetful — just like we do.

‘The trees are in their autumn beauty, The woodland paths are dry, Under the October twilight the water Mirrors a still sky; Upon the brimming water among the stones Are nine-and-fifty swans. ‘The nineteenth autumn has come upon me Since I first made my count; I saw, before I had well finished, All suddenly mount … Read More
