Paul is a graduate of the University of Illinois where he earned a MS in Materials Engineering. He has had the unenviable experience of having been caught in the middle of the last two economic bubbles. First as a semiconductor process engineer during the dotcom collapse and later as a sales manager during the credit market meltdown of 2008. Frustrated by the fact that no one in the mainstream media was able to credibly explain what had happened, he made the decision to become his own expert. He approached the study of economics as an engineering problem, focusing on the numbers and letting the math draw the conclusions. From there it didn’t take long to figure out that the Dollar was in trouble.
A proponent of the Austrian School of Economics, Paul has come to the conclusion that the fundamental problem lies in our system of fiat money and fractional reserve banking. He calls it the fraud that hides in plain sight, as it is virtually impossible to see without someone first pointing it out. His goal in writing is to help educate those around him as to how this system of wealth transfer works and what individuals can do to protect themselves.
