I am pleased to announce an economic conference in Sonoma, California on April 5, 2013 featuring some of the best economic thinkers and speakers in the world including…
- John Hussman
- Michael Pettis
- Jim Chanos
- John Mauldin
- Chris Martenson
- Special Guests
Sonoma is in “Wine Country”, west of the Napa Valley and slightly north of San Francisco. If you like the idea of enjoying great weather, excellent food and wine, plus inside access to many of today’s best economic minds – all together in one of the most beautiful places in the world – this conference will likely interest you.
Reservations and Details
For reservations and details please click on Wine Country Conference.
The list of speakers includes select economic forecasters that I respect most. The group includes experts on China, monetary policy, and investment opportunities in a shrinking-yield world.
These minds have never all been in the same place at the same time before, so I cannot tell you how excited I am for us all to be together.
Net Proceeds to Charity
Net proceeds from this event go to an extremely worthy cause: funding research for ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Matching $100,000 Grant From Hussman Foundation
From now until the start of the conference on April 5, 2013, the John P. Hussman Foundation will generously match $1,000 of each conference registration fee as well as match any donations made to the Les Turner ALS Foundation, up to a total of $100,000.
Book Your Conference Reservations Now
There will be presentations and panels throughout the conference, as well as ample time to meet the speakers during breaks and mixers.
Please book your reservations now. There is a nice discount for those who book early. The total number of reservations is limited to 200.
Donations and Raffle Tickets
Matching donations continue up to April 5th but raffle tickets are not included in that match.
For those not familiar with the raffle, it is something I organized in honor of my wife Joanne, who passed away on May 16, 2012 from ALS.

Some people emailed they did not like entering the information fields required. However, the purpose is only to ensure the foundation knows how to get in touch with raffle winners!
People move, phone numbers change, and email addresses change. It’s as simple as that.
Thanks in advance to all who attend the conference, make a donation, or purchase a raffle ticket. Money will be used for ALS research, a very worthwhile cause.
