About me

I am an economic strategist, interested in a variety of subjects from economics, investments, politics, history and culture. I blog in my personal capacity and do not represent the views of my employer.

I started my career in the economics profession as a sovereign risk analyst, before moving into economic and investment strategy consulting. I was a specialist on the macro-economy and markets of South Africa and the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, advising and consulting mostly to fund and asset management professionals. I am now applying my skills to the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain, as the lead of Investec Bank’s Blockchain programme.

I co-founded the Ludwig von Mises Institute South Africa with friends in 2011, an economic think tank that promotes the market economy, sound money, private property, and peaceful international relations.

I hope you enjoy my blog.
