The editor is a retired securities trader who is fascinated with history. He writes most of the posts for this site. Another passion is human liberty and the "American experiment." Because of that, he writes commentary concerning freedom issues for several well known blog sites. His name is Grant Davies.
Among those sites are:
Mr. Arthur Cashin, who is the Director of Floor Operations for UBS Corp. on the New York Stock Exchange. Mr. Cashin also makes daily appearances on CNBC TV to explain what the markets are doing to those of us who still can't figure it out after decades of trying.
The stories found here which were authored by Art were originally penned for his "Cashin's Comments" daily market letter. Mr. Cashin and UBS have graciously given us permission to republish some of his fine historical musings on this site.
