 Street Strategist Home Page

 

 In this volume the Street Strategist, the most famous unknown, the pavement philosopher of maximum imagination and minimum talent, of infinite comprehension and zero knowledge, of total opinion and minimal truth, 

  • resurrects the Thinking Word; 
  • declares that his invention of the world’s fastest, the most effective, and the most accurate way to learn debit and credit is his legacy as the Accounting Wizard; 
  • shares the feedback of his readers whom he calls losers; 
  • proposes initiatives for government agencies; invents the one-meter rule for wet markets; 
  • shares the involute genius of the winners of his mathematical problem; 
  • reminisces his moments with a former bank president who took his own life; 
  • develops a strategy for the local software industry; 
  • predicts the exact ending of one of the best fights of Manny Pacquaio, the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world; 
  • comes up with a strategy for Linux; 
  • advises a large financial services firm to shut down its most profitable division; 
  • exposes the fact that even PhD economists misinterpret opportunity cost; 
  • emphasizes the importance of the separation theorem in finance; 
  • gets cited by a legally recognized National Artist, by an officer of the US Army Air War College, a professor in California State University and by a South Korean think tank; explains why poor citizens are not rich; 
  • describes how an appeal strategy he discovered and published a few years ago has been recently used by a former Justice of the Supreme Court; 
  • recalls what he didn’t learn at the Asian Institute of Management; and among other things, reveals one of his most valued assets – his thinking time. 

Thinking Time: The Misadventures of the Street Strategist Volume 12 is the latest compilation of the continuing chronicles of the Most Famous Unknown’s convoluted ruminations on the irrelevant, the immaterial, the insignificant, the negligible, and the obscure, as published in the longest column space in the country.
