I'm an investment analyst and strategist with 20+ years industry experience in financial markets, macro-economics, and mathy model building. Spent a decade each in both corporate finance and venture capital—and have delivered high profile analyses to Bill Gates, JY Lee of Samsung, BlackRock, Tencent and other global names.
Some people play golf, some work on their car, I like to drink coffee and analyze stuff! While I've spent decades analyzing complex financial problems, over time I've become more interested in studying socioeconomic patterns. These writings are on both straight finance, and socioeconomics.
With mass media plagued by anti-intellectualism, we need to hear from people who actually know something about the topics, and are still capable of basic reasoning and intellectual honesty. One solution is for the professionals and academics to bypass mass media, and report directly to the public.
By the way...the pseudonym comes from Ptolemy the Greek inventor of the just major scale (not the third king of the Ptolemaic dynasty in Egypt!). You can follow me using the social media links below, thanks!
