Why There Is No Bottom In Sight For Housing - By Keith Jurow
Monday, 11 June 2012
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Keith Jurow has been researching and writing about the housing market debacle around the U.S. with an eye for themes that are frequently overlooked or ignored by the media.

For the past two years, he has been the only analyst consistently correct in asserting that there is no housing bottom in sight. Keith's in-depth housing market articles have been featured on major business sites such as  http://www.minyanville.com/, http://www.businessinsider.com/http://www.marketwatch.com/, http://www.realclearmarkets.com/ and http://www.pragmaticcapitalism.com/.

He is the Author of Minyanville’s Housing Market Report which provides never-seen-before data, charts, and graphs that enable investors and homeowners to make smarter decisions.  His recent in-depth reports on NYC and Long Island revealed shocking details about the enormous overhand of seriously delinquent properties which will sooner-or-later cause home prices in the NYC metro to plunge. 

Keith is a former senior economic writer for the Holt Investment Advisory of Westport, Connecticut.  He is a graduate of Cornell University, received an M.A. and Ph.D. from the New School in Manhattan, and taught on the undergraduate level for more than a decade.

How the Coming GOP-Tea Party Civil War Over the National Debt Will Imperil the Economic Recovery by John LeBoutillier -Political columnist NEWSMAX.COM
Thursday, 07 April 2011
6:00-8:00 pm

A life-long resident of Westbury, Long Island, John LeBoutillier was born in Glen Cove, New York on May 26, 1953.

A 1976 Magna Cum Laude graduate of Harvard College with a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Harvard Business School, LeBoutillier used his college experience as the basis of his book, Harvard Hates America.  Lecturer and author, LeBoutillier has since written numerous articles which have appeared on the New York Times  Op-Ed Page, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times Sunday Magazine and in major publications throughout the nation.

He first rose to national prominence in 1974 when, at the age of 21 and a sophomore at Harvard, he raised over a quarter million dollars for Leo Thorsness, a former P.O.W., in a South Dakota Senate race against George McGovern.

In 1976 he served as regional coordinator, responsible for all field activities, in New Jersey for Gerald Ford’s presidential campaign.

Elected on November 4, 1980 to represent New York’s 6th District, LeBoutillier was the youngest member of the 97th Congress.  During that time he served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and , as a member of the Special House POW/MIA Task Force pressed for continuing investigation to determine the fate of 2,500 Americans still unaccounted for in Indochina.

Since leaving Congress in 1983, LeBoutillier has run the Sky Hook II Project, a privately funded group dedicated to recovering living American Prisoners of War held against their will in Southeast Asia.  Sky Hook II has over 50, 000 American supporters.  Its purposes are to gather on-the-ground human intelligence throughout Laos and Vietnam and to educate the American public about the POW issue.

Since 1983, Mr. LeBoutillier has journeyed to Southeast Asia many times, including two trips to Vietnam as the guest of the Hanoi government, to discuss a solution to the POW problem.

In 1989 LeBoutillier authored Vietnam Now; A Case for Normalizing Relations with Hanoi published by Praeger Publishers.

In 1981 Mr. LeBoutillier conducted the first American television interview with Alexander Solzhinitsyn on NBC’s TOMORROW SHOW. Also in late 1981, Congressman LeBoutillier interviewed President Reagan from his ranch on WMCA radio on Thanksgiving afternoon.

In 1984 Mr. LeBoutillier conducted the first live radio interview with former President Richard M. Nixon for the ABC Talk Radio Network in a three-hour ABC Special Presentation.

From 1983- 1989, Mr. LeBoutillier was the primary substitute at WMCA Radio for radio hosts Barry Gray and Bob Grant. He also had his own Sunday morning show on WPLJ. He has also hosted shows on WABC.

In 2010, Mr. LeBoutillier co-authored THE OBAMA IDENTITY; A Novel (Or Is It?) with Ed Klein.

In December 2010, LeBoutillier joined with noted Canadian broadcaster, Arlene Bynon, to launch BYNON/LEBOUTILLIER, the first international talk radio show, airing simultaneously on WABC Talk Radio in New York City and AM640 in Toronto and airing in the United Kingdom.

Mr. LeBoutillier is a political columnist for NEWSMAX.COM and his columns also appear at www.JohnLeBout.com

Hyperinflation : A Statistical Inevitability by Victor Sperandeo - President & CEO Alpha Financial Technologies Inc
Monday, 14 March 2011
6:30-8:30 pm

A professional trader with over 40 years experience in the stock, bond, futures, commodities, and currency markets, Victor Sperandeo has successfully invested through approximately seven bull and seven bear market cycles. He has traded independently for, among others, George Soros, Leon Cooperman and BT Alex Brown.

 

Investment banks and financial institutions in over 15 countries worldwide have licensed Victor's firm AFT's indexes. As of June 2010, there is approximately $3 billion invested globally in products utilizing AFT's indexes.

 

Mr. Sperandeo has received two patents in the U.S., two in the Bahamas, and one in Australia on financial products using long/short algorithmic indicators or indices in conjunction with leverage, which add alpha while simultaneously reducing risk.

 

Mr. Sperandeo is also recognized for his futures market trading expertise and has for some time implemented a number of successful strategies that are designed to profit from futures price trends. He created the Diversified Trends Indicator™, which is an evolution of these strategies. It is a rules-based, investable trading methodology incorporating a diversified group of highly liquid, exchange-traded commodity and financial futures contracts, reflecting market expectations of near-term and future price movements.

 

He has been featured twice in Barron’s — “Man of all Markets” and “Trader Vic the Ultimate Wall Street Pro” where he gained the nickname Trader Vic and correctly called the 1987 crash three weeks before it happened — and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal and Stocks & Commodities.

 

Among other career highlights, Victor is the author of three acclaimed books: Trader Vic — Methods of a Wall Street Master, Trader Vic II — Principles of Professional Speculation, and Trader Vic on Commodities: What’s Unknown, Misunderstood, and Too Good To Be True and is featured in the books Super Traders, and New Market Wizard. In 2008, he was inducted into the Trader Hall of Fame. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
