Guest speaker: Rick Rule
Ludwig von Mises was born 29 Sept. 1881, in the
eastern part of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire, but grew up and lived
in Vienna, Austria. Predicting the Nazi takeover (Anschluss) of
Austria, he moved to Geneva, Switzerland in 1934. But after the
war started, even in neutral Switzerland he was not safe, having just
missed kidnapping by the Nazi's at least once and possibly twice.
He escaped war-torn Europe in 1940, in a harrowing bus trip via occupied
France, fascist Spain and then a boat from Lisbon, Portugal to the US.
He settled in New York City and was highly productive in his adopted
America until his death on 10 Oct. 1973.
Our speaker: Rick Rule began his career in the
securities business in 1974, and has been principally involved in

British Columbia. In November, 2010, Rule sold Global Resource
Investments, Ltd. and its affiliated companies, to Sprott, Inc., a
leading independent public natural resources investment manager,
considered Canada's premier global resource oriented money manager.
As for his philosophy, Rule states, "I am not an economist, but
rather a credit analyst and businessman. My economic philosophies
are aligned with the Austrian school, as a consequence of a life-long
process of observing markets in action. My political beliefs stem
from a base that voluntary exchange is best, and that the initiation of
force, fraud or coercion is immoral."
Rick Rule will be speaking on the influence Ludwig von Mises had on
him and on his very successful career.
