Why Should I Read This Letter?

Dr. John has a unique way of looking at the world. As a professor, he appreciates the importance of markets. As an investor who has fought his way through a half century of financial crises he knows how to preserve and grow capital in markets that don’t always work. Over the past 40 years, Dr. John has developed a framework for understanding the financial crises we all live through that combines the best of economics and a corner of physics known as complex adaptive systems. He calls it Far from Equilibrium Economics.
