Alasdair started his career as a stockbroker in 1970 on the London Stock Exchange. In those days, trainees learned everything: from making the tea, to corporate finance, to evaluating and dealing in equities and bonds. They learned rapidly through experience about things as diverse as mining shares and general economics. It was excellent training, and within nine years Alasdair had risen to become senior partner of his firm. Subsequently, Alasdair held positions at director level in investment management, and worked as a mutual fund manager. He also worked at a bank in Guernsey as an executive director. For most of his 40 years in the finance industry, Alasdair has been de-mystifying macro-economic events for his investing clients. The accumulation of this experience has convinced him that unsound monetary policies are the most destructive weapon governments use against the common man. Accordingly, his mission is to educate and inform the public in layman’s terms what governments do with money and how to protect themselves from the consequences.

  1. Thank you for a most interesting analysis.
    The goldmarket tends to develop a remarkable innovative pricing system, in which the value of gold is annihilating to ca. 1 US$ /ounce (the value of papergold) and the extra charge of ca. 1450 US$ /ounce for physical delivery.
    Understanding these mechanisms helps to understand why the Fed considers gold as virtually worthless: the act of physical delivery is going to be the most expensive part and fastest growing market of the gold business.
