Tell us a bit about your family. I was born in a family of 4, in Hong Kong, China but currently live in San Francisco Bay Area, USA. My family owns trading businesses in Hong Kong but immigrated to USA in late 1990s in seek of better education opportunities.
I am newly and happily married and expecting a new member of the family by late 2013. My wife is a graduate student at Pepperdine University and she is working on a start-up project. She was a former private financial adviser at Morgan Stanley San Francisco headquarter.
What is your favorite quality about yourself? I am a Go-Getter. When I know what I want, I am always determined to achieve it despite what other may say. I am also very analytical at the same time, which allows me to accomplish what I want accurately.
What is your least favorite quality about yourself? I could say that my least favorite quality is that I like Scotch and I’m a “Type A” individual.
What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why? My favorite quote is: “I’ve commended you to be strong and brave. Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged! I am your Lord your God, and I will be there to help you wherever you go” – Joshua 1:9.
I believe that faith and trust is important in life and as a matter of fact, in anything we do. There are too much fear and worry in the world that just get in the way of productivity.
What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life? I am quite proud of what I’ve achieved until now. Despite being young, I have made plenty of business mistakes but the key point and in the same time my UKP (unique key preposition) is that I’ve learnt from my business and investment mistakes and I had the opportunity of turning that experience to success.
What is your favorite color? I can’t really say I have a favorite color. I wear clothes that I feel comfortable wearing and I am not choosing those depending on a certain color.
What is your favorite food? I am not picky; I eat anything, depending on my mood! If I were to choose something, I would go with the food my wife cooks for me. J
In his 2008 Congressional testimony, Dr. Alan Greenspan, Former Federal Reserve Chairman, noted a flaw in the economic model he previously thought defined how the world works. Greenspan was referring to the ability of banks and markets to regulate themselves—an ideology he admitted went wrong with the 2008 economic meltdown.
The author has a unique perspective from the inside. He covers topics like inflation, quantitative easing, the “fiscal cliff,” and the global debt crisis with clarity and purpose. Dr. Alan P. Chan is presenting his research as evidence of money’s shaky foundation as an economic driver that Dr. Greenspan’s “critical flaw” presents an excellent investment opportunity.
