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.



Just last week I was approached by a Hollywood producer to be the consultant on a new James Bond sequel to be titled “You Only Hang twice”. Having received a restraining order nine months ago in the famous Gilligan’s Island trial, I and my wife Amy had just been sentenced to five days in jail (with time off for community service) for playing 15 minutes of music at 9 pm in our backyard pool. The music was below city decibel limits but was somehow disturbing the peace of our noise-sensitive neighbor. NO police citation was issued but what the heck, a crime must have been committed if the neighbor simply called police and complained he couldn’t sleep at such a late hour.
