Gary A. Scott is an economist and the author of 65th Octave, an economic thriller with a spiritual twist.
Ted Nicholas, one of America's best selling self-publishers and foremost entrepreneurs, wrote of Gary Scott, “Gary enjoys a worldwide reputation. He is an entrepreneur, author and investment advisor extraordinaire. While today it's commonplace, Gary was the first advisor 25 years ago who recommended international diversification for the small investor. At first, many thought he was crazy. Today, the establishment advisors are on the bandwagon. Gary's investment tips have probably helped more investors get rich than any advisor in the world!”
Gary was one of the first advisors to suggest global investing thirty years ago. He appeared on numerous TV and radio shows and was heard weekly for years on the syndicated radio program, Market Rap, which was broadcast by WEVD in New York City. He was a monthly columnist for, “On Wall Street”, one of the largest circulation magazines for US stock brokers under the bi line “The Global Guru”. He wrote a column for “The Global Guide”, a newsletter published by one of Canada's top portfolio managers, appeared in federal court as an expert witness regarding international economics and managed a multi million dollar portfolio for one of Austria's leading international investment banks.
Now he has changed his entire financial message again. The change came because in Scott's first decades of global research and teaching he unearthed five golden investments that were among the century's best. Some readers(and Gary) made millions. Yet a haunting question gnawed at Scott. Information he gave investors was the same, yet some investors earned fortunes, others made only a little and some lost!
“What was the difference between those who won and those who lost?” This question gnawed at Gary like a cancer. Finding the answer became an obsession! He reviewed thousands of economic experiences gained with readers and talked to portfolio managers all over the world. He trekked through jungles, deserts and climbed mountains to ask economic questions of wise men, Christian ministers, Incan Yatchaks, African missionaries, Hindu pundits in India, Sufi masters of Baghdad and llamas from Brazil. What he learned has been encapsulated into a system of making, keeping and enjoying wealth called “Inspired Investing” and that is based on the fact that the just making and keeping wealth are not enough. The process of economics must be pleasurable and be good for the world.
All these events in his life led to the writing of 65th Octave, his first novel which Scott wrote as an entertaining way to learn the deepest aspects of wealth.
