Bitcoin Is a Junk Currency, But It Lays the Foundation For Better Money - Forbes

I run a small private investment partnership, which invests globally with a macro theme. I would say the study of economics is best done in the tradition of the gentleman economists of the past, such as David Ricardo, Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill. Previously, I was an economist and macro strategist for a firm that served institutional investors. My book Gold: the Once and Future Money was released in 2007, and is now available in German, Chinese, Korean and Russian. My opinion pieces have appeared in the Financial Times, Asian Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones Newswires, Worth, Daily Yomiuri, Asia Times, Pravda, Huffington Post, and numerous other print and online publications. I also have a personal website at newworldeconomics.com.
