During his time at Staples, the company quadrupled in revenues and store count nationwide. 2001 Private consulting 2003 focused exclusively on the US and world economies, financial markets, currencies, and the commodity fields. Gold and energy have been a prime focus. Mr Willie’s website, “The Golden Jackass” is designed to inform and instruct in the complex ways of gold, currencies, bonds, interest rates, stocks, commodities, futures, derivatives and the world economy, with no respect shown for inept bankers and economists, whose policies and practices contribute toward the slow motion degradation, if not destruction, of the financial world. The website provides an ongoing source of excellent articles written by other authors, who make significant contributions to the above mentioned topics, in addition to a collection of news briefs filled with critical data. A minimum of tools are also made available for monitoring charts of important series, such as the USDollar, gold, the CRB index, and the US$ money supply.
