In search of the ultimate 'guru' of kitco's audience you can add 3 names here as the most popular 5 names will later on be subject of a poll to determine Kitco'ers most respected economist, analist, etc...

Whether it is Murray Rothbard, Ben Bernanke, Warren Buffet or Martin Armstrong...

Whoever has helped you most to understand economics and the markets can receive a nomination.

I hope plenty of people will respond. :D

(Please no discussion in the first round, just give 3 names


And if you want you can explain your picks bellow the names.)

Thanks in advance.

Topic will now close in oktober.

To many variables for one guru to cover these days.

Bob Chapman - his background on Wall St. & being involved with military intelligence when he was younger lends a lot of credibility to his views

Robby Noel - (Flipside - 6PM CST - Repub. broadcasting) Very astute observer of precious metals & the fedgov/zionist cabal.

John Stadtmiller (Nat'l Intel Report - 4-6PM CST / Repuib. broadcasting ) Very knowledgable on several issues and does an excellent job of bringing outstanding guests to his audience on a daily basis. On Mon. he has Ron Mcdonald ('They own it all, including you'), Tues - Chapman, Wed- Joyce Rosenwald who's very informed on how the fedgov was flipped after the civil war, the destructive effects of the 14th Amend., Reconstruction & how it still impacts us today.

I especially like these guys because they have integrity and guts; also they know their stuff and they tell it like it is, and they are independent thinkers and excellent communicators... not to mention prolific.

Just three eh,....can't be really fair but I'll pick these;

Marc Faber
Jim Sinclair (actually jsminest which contains input from Armstrong and others but I guess I have to pick a person)
Jim Willie (I would liked to have put GATA here but that is an organisation and not a person so...)

Don't follow Schiff much nowadays but it is mainly as it feels I already know what he is going to say. But if he still has the old video's still avaialble on his europac site, they are a hoot.
Same thing with Jim Rogers. He picks the general trends right but doesn't contribute in medium or shorter term analysis.

Quite a few new members recently so I am kicking the thread for new responses and will prepare the next topic where Kitco's favourite guru can be elected out of 3 nominees.

Thank you for responding or having responded.
