Gary Christenson’s site DeviantInvestor.com deals with investing in gold, silver, the economy, and central banking. His articles are published on popular sites such as 321Gold.com, PeakProsperity.com, GoldSeek.com, DollarCollapse.com, and many others.
Many years ago he did graduate work in physics, so he strongly believes in analysis, objective facts, and rational decisions based on hard data. For 20 years he lived and worked in Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost community in the United States, 330 miles north of the Arctic Circle. He believes there are numerous parallels between surviving in the arctic and investing in today’s markets. For example:
- There is little room for delusional thinking when you are subjected to a blizzard at 40 degrees below zero while facing 30 mph of wind. Similarly, dangerous markets will punish delusional thinking.
- There is much to learn about survival in the arctic, considerably more than just “wear more clothes.” Similarly there is much to learn about financial markets, which are increasingly complicated and more difficult to understand than they appear. Underestimating either arctic conditions or the complexity of markets can be disastrous.
Gary will be a speaker at the 2nd Liberty Mastermind Symposium in Las Vegas on February 21-22, 2014.
