Journal of Finance, the Financial Analysts Journal, Staff Economic Studies of the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve and the Journal of Portfolio Management. I am particularly proud of a paper delivered at a three-day economics
symposium in 1981 in which I was the only presenter who supported the economic policies of President Ronald Reagan
(Reaganomics in the Stagflation Economy, Sidney Weintraub and Marvin Goodstein, Editors, 1983, Univ. of Pennsylvania
I have been quoted by virtually every major financial publication in the world and have appeared on most of the major
financial news programs on television, cable and radio. I testified before various committees of Congress, including House
Ways and Means, Senate Finance and Senate Banking.
Through my work in economics and finance, I have known many of the world’s leading economists (such as Niall Ferguson,
John H. Cochrane, Burton Malkiel, Henry Kaufman, Charles P. Kindleberger, Hyman Minsky, Gary Schilling and Nobel
Laureates Milton Friedman, Harry Markowitz and Lawrence Klein). I did projects for David Rockefeller (son of John D. and
brother of Nelson A.) and Sir William Purvis, who were CEOs of two of the banks I served. I had associations with numerous
central bankers (such as Paul Volcker, Arthur Burns and Otmar Emminger of the Bundesbank) and cabinet officers (such
as the late Jack Kemp, who referenced my work in his book American Renaissance, the late Treasury Secretary William
Simon and former Attorney General Richard Thornburg). I met many media personalities (including Neil Cavuto, Tom
Brokaw, Jane Pauley, Stuart Varney, Lou Dobbs, Mark Haines and Louis Rukeyser).
For 23 years, I was a member of the Board of Trustees of Temple University. I received the Abramson Award of the
National Association for Business Economics for “outstanding contributions in the field of business economics.” I have held
memberships and various posts in numerous professional organizations.
Having tree farmed southern pine in East Texas for five decades years, I am very proud of what I have accomplished in
conservation while making the operation commercially viable.
I am the father of two sons and a daughter. My sons are both happily married and live a rich full life in Southeastern
Pennsylvania. For my older son who had a life-threatening stroke when he was 35, this peaks volumes about his positive
outlook on life. My daughter, who is fluent in both Spanish and French, is in her final year In the Plan II Honors program at
the University of Texas where she has made the Dean’s List every semester.
I very happily married to a wonderful woman - my bride of three years. She often travels with me when I speak at economic
and investment conferences. We love to take road trips and especially to locations that allow us to spend time fishing. My
wife, JK (short for Janet Kay) is in the oil and gas business and a graduate of the University of Texas. Ray Benson and
Asleep at the Wheel played at our wedding reception at the Austin Country Club. With three grown daughters and two
grandsons, JK was born and grew up in Nacogdoches, Texas, where my family settled in the 1840s. Our families have
known each other for more than a century and thanks to her I have been able to reconnect to my family’s roots in East
I am a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants, Sons of the American Revolution, the Sons of the Republic of
Texas and the Saint Andrew’s Society of New York. I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Texas Historical
Foundation, an association that allows me to spend some time on the subject of history, which has been a life long interest.
My wife and I are members of West Lake Hills Presbyterian Church and we are exercise enthusiasts. We enjoy The Austin
Symphony Orchestra and attending performances at Austin’s new Zach Theater. Thanks to the wide variety of live
performances in Austin we have been able to see Willie Nelson, George Strait, Liza Minnelli, Merle Haggard, Don McLean,
Tommy Tune (who was starting to make a name at Lamar High School in the 1950s), Diana Ross and others.
