About the Guest

Paul van Eeden is President of Cranberry Capital Inc., a private Canadian holding company. He began his career in the financial and resource sectors as a stockbroker with Rick Rule’s Global Resource Investments Ltd. in 1996. He has been active in financing mineral exploration companies and analyzing markets ever since.

Paul is well known for his work on the relationship between the gold price, inflation and currency markets. His model for determining the fair value for gold was able to predict both the run up in the gold price to over $1,000 an ounce between 2001 to 2008, and its subsequent decline to around $750. He also created a measure called the Actual Money Supply (AMS) to monitor the real rate of inflation. AMS is crucial to analyze real (inflation adjusted) changes in prices and to calculate the real return on investments.
Paul stopped writing a subscription newsletter in October, 2008, and his past commentaries can be found in the Archive on this site. Any future articles will be posted there publicly as well.
