Late Thursday, I had a conversation with Jim Quinn of http://www.theburningplatform.com/ As you may know, I've become a big fan of Jim's work and it was a real treat to get to visit with him.
I think what I like best about Jim is that he's just a regular guy. He's not a "former Wall St analyst" or an "independent trader". He's just a guy that was so alarmed at what he saw happening in the U.S. that he feared for his kids' future. He started writing articles in 2008 and they were soon picked up by several, independent websites. Not long after that, it was off to the races. He now manages his own site called The Burning Platform and he is frequently a "guest poster" at Zero Hedge.
I heartily encourage you to become a regular visitor to his site.
p.s. I was having some extraordinarily strange, technical difficulties while recording this podcast. Unfortunately, the recording was interrupted and I lost the last 15 minutes or so. I promise to try to circle back around to Jim soon so that we can elaborate on this initial discussion.
James (Jim) Quinn is a senior director of strategic planning for a major university. Jim has held financial positions with a retailer, a homebuilder and a university in his 25-year career.
