About the author
Ted Hunter has been a successful businessman and entrepreneur for over 60 years, including several decades as an insider in both the real estate industry and on Wall Street. Thirty years ago, he built a successful real estate brokerage with over 100 agents, which went bust in the real estate crash of the late ’80s. Learning from this experience, he entered the world of Wall Street at the end of 1990. He helped his clients to consistently outperform the market, and then advised them to get out of the stock market in early 2000 before the market started to dive. In the fall of 2005 he did it again by warning all who would listen of the coming crash of the real estate market. He is passionate about exposing the problems with the current money management system and sharing a better approach.
