The Silicon Valley Capital Club

50 W. San Fernando St.- 17th Floor,   San Jose (Validated /free parking available in same building)


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.


RuleOur speaker: Rick Rule began his career in the securities business in 1974, and has been principally involved in natural resource security investments ever since. He is a leading investor specializing in mining, energy, water, forest products and agriculture. Rick founded California-based Global Resource Investments, Ltd. 

A popular public speaker, Mr. Rule is a featured presenter throughout the world, such as being a perennial favorite at FreedomFest in Las Vegas and the Agora Financial Investment Symposium held in Vancouver each July.

Interviews with Rick Rule and his articles and commentary are frequently included in such sources as: TheDailyReckoning.com, TheDailyBell.com, King World News, The Gold Report, BNN, The Energy Report, metalsNews.com and SilverSeek, etc.

His research and brokerage capabilities are frequently recommended by distinguished financial newsletter writers such as Bob Bishop, Doug Casey, Adrian Day, Richard Maybury, Paul Van Eeden, Mark Skousen, Jack Pugsley and others.  You can find many videos of him on YouTube.com. 

Rick Rule was born in San Jose, and attended the University of 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.
