Chris Marcus has been a sound money advocate for over a decade. Once a Wall Street trader himself, Chris got a first-hand look at the underbelly of our banking and trading system. Since he left that job, he has been sounding the alarm about impending problems we are now seeing come to fruition. He also authored a book with many titans of precious metals investing and analysis. It’s called The Big Silver Short and can be purchased here.

Turd Furguson, who sometimes goes by Craig Hemke spent nearly 20 years as a licensed securities “professional” (emphasis his). Similar to others on this list, Craig became disenchanted with financial services, which he calls a “fraud.” He retired in 2008 to pursue what he calls being a “serial entrepreneur”. Over the years, Craig has developed almost a sixth sense about the precious metals markets and factors at play and spends his time fighting for the “end of the Great Keynesian Experiment“.

  1. I think I missed the Poll on this but all are superb and worthy candidates, who I admire for their intellect and devotion to cause of enlightening us all, and who have inspired me personally to take up the challenge of promoting silver as God’s sound money, and to devote my formative years to spreading the word in which ever ways I can.
