Damon Vickers

Author of "The Day After the Dollar Crashes: A Survival Guide for the Rise of the New World Order," money manager and media personality Damon Vickers has a 25-year track record of articulating investment themes with striking clarity. He called top of the bull market in March 2000, predicted the dotcom collapse and warned investors about Enron. He liquidated all of his real estate in 2005 and advised others to do the same. Sensing a thinning market, he went on to call the second market top in 2008 and launched a hedge fund that gained some 63%, profiting from shorting GM, Lehman, AIG, Countrywide and others. Mr. Vickers has been a popular guest on many shows including CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business, The Wall Street Journal, the BBC and The Today Show. Damon is the third generation in a financial family. His father was a floor trader for Goldman Sachs on the NYSE and his grandfather worked at Kidder Peabody & Co. He currently lives near Seattle, WA with his wife and 3 young daughters.
