About the Author:

Known as the maverick of economics for his contrarian and optimistic views, his sometimes-outrageous statements and predictions, Mark Skousen is a college professor, prolific author and world-renowned speaker. He s made his unique sense of market and investment trends known and respected in the financial world. With a Ph.D. in economics and a focus on the principles of free-market capitalism and Austrian economics, Mark Skousen has often gone contrary to the crowd in his investment choices and economic predictions and has often been proved right.

He has been writing Forecasts & Strategies since 1980 and is the author of The Making of Modern Economics, Investing in One Lesson, The Structure of Production and High Finance on a Low Budget, Vienna & Chicago, Friends or Foes, and Economic Logic. The Mark Skousen School of Business at Grantham University is named in his honor.
