Chris Martenson has an MBA in Finance from Cornell, a Ph.D. from Duke, has been a research scientist in the field of nuerotoxicology, a former VP of Pfizer, and started his own investing website. He and his family lived in a 5 bedroom house on the water in Mystic, CT. Life was good.In 2003, he gave it all up.Chris had a foreshadowing of some of the economic events that ultimately caused the recession, became disillusioned with where our future was heading overall, quit his job, sold his big house, and moved his family into a small rental house in the woods. Chris took his money out of the hands of his investors and began making his own investments, with returns that exceed that of his former investorrs"s. He grows a garden, brews his own beer, and raises chickens for food. Chrisrs"s passion is now education. Chris feels strongly that if people had enough of a working knowledge of the fundamentals of the economy before the recession, they could have easily seen the recession coming and could have made different choices, financially and otherwise, to prepare themselves. Maybe some people would have put more money in an emergency fund, or sold their house before they owed more on it than it was worth. Chris is now dedicating his life to educating people, or giving them a "Crash Course" on the three E's: the Economy, Energy, and the Environment, so they can make better choices in the future. He wants people to understand: How completely dependent the 3ers"s are on each other The unsustainable current trajectory they are on The changes that could have on our future (not just another housing crisis or recession, but also things like food supply shortage due to contamination, like the one we recently experienced with eggs, but on a larger scale, or the likelihood of more big natural disasters or disease outbreaks because of environmental shifts caused by global warming, etc.)
