Bill Bonner

Bill Bonner is the co-author of The New York Times bestselling books Financial Reckoning Day: Surviving the Soft Depression of the 21st Century, Empire of Debt: The Rise of an Epic Financial Crisis, and Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets: Surviving the Public Spectacle in Finance and Politics.

And in his latest book, A Modest Theory of Civilization: Win-Win or Lose, he explores the progress of society through all its peaks and valleys. Along the way, he reveals the one rule society must follow if it hopes to progress… and shows what happens to those who ignore it.

In 1978, Bill founded The Agora – now the largest independent research network on the planet. He has started businesses all over the world… employs thousands of employees… has made investments on five continents… sees a dozen different business deals cross his desk every single week… has acquired more than two dozen businesses… owns hundreds of thousands of acres of land… travels about 100,000 air miles every year… and has launched over 1,000 products.

His daily e-letter, Bill Bonner’s Diary, is published to over 500,000 readers.

And in his monthly newsletter, The Bonner-Denning Letter, Bill shares his insights about how the business and financial worlds REALLY work. Along with his co-author, Dan Denning, Bill identifies big opportunities. And he shows you where average investors are making big mistakes.

In short, Bill opens a window to the world of money and wealth that you won’t find anywhere else.
