Few have made more money predicting the end of the world than Casey (except of course the various religions). I think his first book was in 1980 or so and he and his followers are still here. It may take 100 years for him to be right.

2) capable of good speech making
3) interesting and charismatic company
Well there's a shocker!

Yup. So much for hyperinflation, Doug....You can apparently buy his prophetic book _Investing in Crisis_ (1979/1980) for $0.01 used on Amazon. Pretty ironic.
