His informative and entertaining presentations combine a broad range of disciplines: economics, future studies, finance, history, politics, science and philosophy to provide stimulating, thought-provoking economic and financial insight, accurate forecasts and profitable strategies customized to meet the needs of diverse audiences.

Economics has been described as “applied common sense” – never more so than in Dr Smith’s presentations. “Telling it like it is”, without jargon and using colorful slides, he enables his audiences to understand how complex economic and financial issues affect their professional and personal lives. His areas of expertise include the U.S. and global economy, U.S. monetary and fiscal policy, international trade, global energy markets, investment markets and Wall Street views of individual industries and companies.

As author of a internationally distributed newsletter, Cyclical Investing, for the past 17 years, Mr. Smith has been described as a “contrarian” because so many of his written economic and financial predictions have run counter to the prevailing views at the time. His uncanny forecasts and profitable strategies have enabled his audiences to reap handsome rewards and avoid substantial losses from numerous major events including: – The 1986 oil price crash and subsequent booming economy and financial markets; – The 1987 stock market crash and ensuing rebounding economy and stock market; – The 1990-91 Gulf War, oil price spike, stock market slump and recession; – The 1994, 1998 and 2000 stock market declines.

Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mr. Smith colors his presentations with a broad, international perspective. He can also address Spanish-speaking audiences in native Spanish. Graduating from Dartmouth College, he earned his bachelor’s degree with honors in economics. After serving as a U.S. Naval officer in the Cuban blockade and doing tours in Vietnam attached to the U.S. Marine Corps, he attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business where he was awarded his master’s degree with distinction in finance. His broad perspective on the world economy and financial markets was gained through a 30-year career in the investment arena, including securities analysis with a major bank and NYSE-member firm, mergers and acquisitions with an international Fortune 500 conglomerate, and national securities underwriting as president and CEO of an NASD-member firm. Since 1980 he has written and lectured extensively about the economy, financial markets and the interrelationships between their respective cycles and those of energy and technology. He is frequently quoted in the print and broadcast press, including national magazines, newspapers, CNBC, PBS and numerous local television and radio stations.
