Review"This book is like Mal - who is a rider, a rocker and a rebel. He doesn't just think outside the box - he drags it behind his Harley on a cross-continent adventure and then runs over it a few times for good measure. The Bay and Wall Street guys are gonna hate it - Main Streeters should embrace it. One ton of fun!" BJ Del Conte Chase Producer, BNN - Business News Network Business Producer/Anchor - CP24

Hot off the presses: EIA revised down fuel demand growth.
It seems the experts are finally catching up to me. The US Energy Information Administration has revised down its outlook for fuels demand due to the coronavirus outbreak and it’s looking bleak (for producers) and great (for consumers). “EIA estimates … Continue reading
Lessons Learned from the Great Recession!
The following is a quote from the book I wrote as I rode my Harley across the heartland of America, contemplating the lessons I learned over 30 years as a money manager: “I picked two headlines published on June 30, … Continue reading
