Learning to Spot Crooks in a Dishonest World

Richard Maybury, Daniel McAdams and Michael Oliver return on the next radio program.

Ben Franklin said “A penny saved is a penny earned.” But as America and the entire world left the gold standard for the first time in history, it fostered a culture of theft and dishonesty like never before. More than ever people struggle to know right from wrong.

How do you know if your investment advisor is honest? How do you know if you are hiring an honest employee or signing a lease with an honest tenant or landlord? Richard explains the system he created to help spot dishonest behavior and deal with it and can save a penny or two.

Michael updates us on his technical readings for gold and other important markets most notable of which is now the T-Bond market.

Richard MayburyRichard J. Maybury is the publisher of U.S. & World Early Warning Report for Investors. He has written several entry-level, common sense books on United States economics, law, and history. His writing style is mostly in an epistolary form, usually as an uncle writing to his nephew, answering questions. Maybury had taught economics in high school. Failing to find a book with a clear explanation of economics, he wrote one himself. Some of his books include Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career & Financial Security—a book that is basically the foundation for his other books about the model perspective; Higher Law, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?—a book that explains the history of the United States economic model and how it was based on free-market Austrian economics; and Whatever Happened to Justice?—about his naturalist philosophical viewpoints regarding the foundations of America’s legal system, British Common Law, the law of the Franks, and early Christian Ireland.

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.

In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
