About

*UPDATED 6/9/15*

This blog is primarily about four things: business, investing, economics and philosophy– as I see them.

Specifically, it is about marketing, management and business innovation; value investing; Austrian economics; and libertarian political philosophy grounded in a rational, objective view of reality.

Some of the primary gurus behind me and my ideas are Benjamin Graham (investing), Ludwig von Mises (economics) and Murray Rothbard (political philosophy) and Ayn Rand (meta philosophy). I don’t see myself as primarily influenced by any particular thinker in the world of business operations and strategy as of yet. I’m still finding my way.

The first iteration of this blog was an anonymous project. I didn’t want readers to be hung up on who I was or where I came from, even though I ended up communicating personally with many consumers of my thought via email and, when the opportunity presented itself, in person. The latest iteration is still anonymous, but more personal. I have a need to inject myself and my opinions more liberally into my discussions and to focus on issues that are more relevant to my current mood, interests and frustrations rather than things which are a target of academic curiosity.

As always, being an adjunct of the universe at large, this website is subject to change.

About the header graphics: the images decorating the website in the top banner area were selected because they represent places I’ve lived, places I’ve visited, places I’d like to visit, people whom I respect or admire, people who I detest who are nonetheless related to things I am interested in, or are symbols of phenomena belonging to business, investment, economic and philosophic ideas I study.

*A look into the past…*

This site is an example of what would’ve happened if Ludwig von Mises and Benjamin Graham had a love child who was later adopted by Murray Rothbard.

Who was Ludwig von Mises?

Who was Benjamin Graham?

Who was Murray Rothbard?

Generally speaking. this site is about investing, economics and philosophy.

Specifically, this site is about value investing, Austrian economics and libertarian philosophy. But it is not limited to those specific things.

This site is not about me and to the extent that it is, it’s a form of personal therapy. Getting this stuff out of my head and onto the web helps me remember what it is that I know (or think I know), gives me a record of my thinking process and maybe, just maybe, will keep me from going insane.

And who am I? I’m nobody important, a mere individual, that is all.

Like life, business value and human action, this website is subject to change.
