I started this blog at in the summer of 2007 as the credit crisis loomed on the horizon, primarily as a vehicle for expressing my view that this crisis would be deep and that it would have a pronounced and prolonged impact on our markets and the economy.
Although this became a reality, I am nevertheless optimistic about the American economy in the long term. This optimism and my incessant curiosity often brings my attention to innovation.
As a result, I have become immersed in technology and social-media over the last few years and hope to be for the foreseeable future.
In my professional life, I joined Paulson & Co. (partially because of this blog) after completing my JD-MBA at Harvard in 2009. I then joined the founding team of a startup called Artivest in 2013 (in the last upcycle), and founded my own investment firm in 2015 called Odin River.
