My wife and I attended a reception last week honoring Edward Klein, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, “The Amateur.” The veteran journalist interviewed more than 200 insiders in the White House to find out what kind of man President Barack Obama really is. Klein, an insider himself as former editor-in-chief of […]

Skousen Investor Cafe: My Run-in with Paul “Crude” Krugman


My wife and I just returned from a 10-day lecture tour in Poland and England, where I spoke to standing room-only audiences on the growing debt crisis in the West.

Skousen Investor Cafe: We Are Headed off of a Fiscal Cliff — Milken Conference Report


I spent this week in Beverly Hills attending the famous Milken Institute Global Conference, hosted by Michael Milken, and the watch word I heard repeatedly about the U.S. economy was “fiscal cliff.” The huge debt load the United States is facing on top of the trillions in unfunded liabilities is cause for alarm. A crisis […]
