The Most Anticipated Market Commentary of Our Time

These Outlooks represent life as I saw it, and in many cases, lived it.  The monthly preambles about living were what I enjoyed writing the most and were almost always laborious painful inquisitions into our daily lives and in some cases the meaning of life itself.

My best ones, in my opinion, were mentally framed during quiet moments in a shower or after a hard workout at the gym when endorphins open the brain to subconscious thoughts and feelings.  They are as much as an autobiography as I could have written, but framed in a monthly series of essays, compiled over four decades that show a maturation or perhaps a molting of my life’s philosophy.  They represent who I was, who I am and who I expect to become.  I hope that in certain ways, they connect with your own experience.


I didn’t start the fire. Other people did. The global warming fire that is; or the environmental crisis that is; or the doomsday scenario for mankind, that is. I will admit that I’m not doing much to help put it out though. For instance, I continue to drink water from a plastic bottle, but tap water is dangerous, isn’t it? Remember Flint, Michigan? I used to fly public, but since 2002 I find I just can’t do without my Challenger or Gulfstream or whatever it is that I own. Never taken my shoes off in an airport either. Much too personal.
