He’s a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer and reporter, lauded by the Columbia Journalism Review for his aggressive style. His book “Overdrawn: The Bailout of American Savings” was a prescient look at the anatomy of the nation’s S&L crisis, long before the word “bailout” became part of our daily lexicon. It’s no wonder that Silicon Valley defense publications vie for Michael’s analysis. He’s worked for Defense Media Network and Signal Magazine, as well as The New York Times, American Enterprise, and The Wall Street Journal.
Michael’s research is world-class, too. The Oakland Tribune, Detroit News, The San Francisco Examiner, The Kansas City Times, Wealth Magazine, and American Banker all publish his reporting. He has appeared on Larry King’s syndicated radio show.
His 30-year track record as a leading tech analyst has garnered him rave reviews, too.
As editor of the financial newsletter American Wealth Underground, he amassed an amazing track record. The first analyst to uncover the rare earth mineral crisis, he amassed cumulative gains of 990% for his readers in just 16 months. Today he is the editor of Radical Technology Profits. He also edits an e-letter called Era of Radical Change that explores “what’s next” in the tech investing world.
Michael has an honors economics degree from the University of Missouri at Columbia. He’s also a registered NRA Triple Distinguished Expert in shotgun, pistol, and rifle and one heck of a blues guitarist. He lives in Oakland, Calif., with his wife Tracy and their two daughters.
