Traveling Today

 

I am off to Vancouver, where I will be speaking at the Agora Financial Conference.  Ironically, I was originally scheduled to travel yesterday, but that got changed a few weeks ago. Perhaps there was still some residual disturbance in the force form that scheduling. I will be back in NYC at the end of the week.

Niall Ferguson, Mark Faber, Michael Covel, Doug Casey, Bill Bonner, Rick Rule, Byron King and quite a few others.

Vancouver is a lovely city, with delightful people, great natural beauty and excellent restaurants (including what may be the best Indian restaurant on the North American continent).

I always enjoy this conference a great deal — if you are in attending, please say hello — you can tag me over the week at BarryisinVancouver@tradermail.info.

We interrupt our usual programming for this brief rant about some of the political hacks of the world: The intertubes are abuzz about this high moderate speed run of 30 hot cars down the New Jersey Turnpike to Atlantic City.
