That would be me.  At least according to the Google translate version of this profile of me in Neue Zürcher ZeitungIt’s a nice piece, and a fair one (in contrast to some other articles I won’t mention).  Except I am really a mild mannered guy.  Really!

  2. I wonder, Craig – have people already contacted you for tips on how to manipulate the commodities market? The capture below the picture says “Craig Pirrong knows how to manipulate commodities markets” 🙂
    Otherwise an indeed nice article – neither well-meant nor ill-devised – but rather very matter-of-fact… *like*
    Best, Tom

  3. @DrD. Yes, I do! And some think that I am repeatedly grinding it 😛

    @Tom. I do know how to manipulate commodity markets, but I put my knowledge to work for the forces of good not evil 😉 The article is matter-of-fact. Too bad that expression doesn’t fit journalism generally.

  6. You are my hero for your brain and your courage, both of which I find very sexy.
