Richard J. Maybury
Who is he: Richard J. Maybury is widely regarded as one of the top free-market writers in America. Maybury's articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and other major publications. President of Henry Madison Research, Inc., Maybury is a world-renowned author, lecturer and analyst who consults with business firms and individuals in the U.S. and Europe.
Richard Maybury is often compared to General Billy Mitchell. You may remember that Mitchell foretold the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; Maybury was one of those rare individuals with the amazing knack for seeing through the "conventional wisdom" and political smoke screens, to spot crucial new trends – the kind that catch most other experts by surprise.
Throughout the 1990s, Maybury warned about a coming world war between Washington and Muslims, but few listened, just as few listened to Mitchell. Ever since 9-11, thousands have been hanging on Maybury's every word. Subscribers who have been taking his advice — to invest in things that do well in wartime — have been reaping astounding profits. Maybury calls his viewpoint "Juris Naturalism," which means the belief in a natural law that is higher than any government's law. This, incidentally, was also the philosophy of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and the other American founders.
Background: Married since 1967, Richard Maybury has lived abroad, traveled around the world, and visited 47 states and 45 countries.

His current interest is "The Fall of the U.S. Empire." Top business leaders have endorsed Maybury's writings. Richard is a consultant to numerous investment firms in the U.S. and Europe.

In the realm of geopolitics, Richard Maybury's insights come not only from a great deal of education, both formal and self-taught, but also from hard experience. During the Vietnam War, Maybury was in the Air Force's 605th Air Commando Squadron, a special operations unit involved in covert warfare in Central and South America. Maybury was a crewmember on AC-47 gunships, and C-46, C-47 and C-141 transport planes, and helped train scores of the CIA's foreign troops from the notorious School of the Americas. Richard Maybury learned firsthand the truth of Senator Hiram Johnson's remark that the first casualty when war comes is truth.
