Research Synopsis

Current research focuses on mindful finance, ethics, the workings of financial markets and monetary economics. The main past achievement is the development of models of asset valuation (gold, Treasuries, stock indexes, tech stocks) based on combining rational and irrational investor behavior. This research has culminated in the co-invention of 'Required Yield Theory' one of the most accurate theory for valuing the S&P 500 and gold. Published in top tier US academic journals such as the Journal of Portfolio Management and Financial Markets, Institutions & Instruments. One of the published articles on 'Sell Discipline' received extensive coverage in the New York Times and International Herald Tribune in 2004.
