My name is Michael Krieger and I am a recovering Wall Street employee.
For those that don’t already know my background, I graduated from Duke University in 2000 with a double major in Economics and Spanish. I took a job at Lehman Brothers upon graduation and worked with the Oil analyst in the Equity Research Department. In 2005, I joined Sanford Bernstein where I served as the Commodities Analyst on the trading floor. About halfway through my time there I started to branch out and write opinions on bigger picture “macro” topics that no one else at the firm was covering. These opinion pieces were extremely popular throughout the global investment community and I traveled around providing advice to some of the largest mutual funds, pension funds and hedge funds in the world.
I loved my job but as time passed I started to educate myself about how the monetary and financial system functions and what I discovered disgusted me. I no longer felt satisfied working within the industry and I resigned in January 2010. At that point I started a family investment office and continued to write macro pieces on economic, social and geopolitical topics. My writings have continued to gain a larger and larger audience as time has passed and I believe that now is the time to create my own space on the web.
I don’t know where this blog will take me but I am excited for the journey. My number one goal is to help as many people as possible protect themselves from the financial and social calamity that is coming to this planet as a consequence of the actions of the Central Planners and those that play ball with them as a means to enrich themselves at the expense of the species. I am dedicated to restoring Liberty to the United States of America.
Please come join me in the Liberty Blitzkrieg.
