"Steve doesn't pull any punches. I was convinced our process was buttoned up, but when he started asking questions with a purpose, it quickly became clear we could be doing things much better."

CURRENT TOPIC TALKS
We’ve Been Here Before…Hundreds of Times
In response to claims that the current environment is unlike anything the world has ever experienced, Stephen Duneier’s research uncovered moments in time that were incredibly similar from a social, behavioral, market and economic perspective. By gaining new perspective, investors can better understand how to capitalize on the environment, and identify key triggers that will signal its end.
Declawing of the Federal Reserve
No matter how you look at the landscape of wealth and income in the United States, the disparity has been growing at an astounding pace. What started it, whether it’s sustainable or even justified, is not the concern here. What is of great importance, however, is the impact this shift in the composition of the Federal Reserve’s target audience has had on the economy and the consequences for the effectiveness of the Fed itself.
The Real Reason Commodities Spiked, and Collapsed
1996 marked the beginning of one of the most ambitious projects ever attempted. It affected interest rates, immigration, currencies, agriculture, the environment and so much more. It lifted millions out of poverty and pushed wealth to all corners of the globe (even if only to a select few). It dramatically altered the landscape of the global economy, and yet very little has been written about it, or its impact. In this talk, Stephen explains what happened back then, and why its impact began to reverse in 2010.
Better Decisions, Better Results:
Using Cognitive Science to Gain a Competitive Edge
Decades of research has taught us much about how the brain works, how we approach problems and how we make decisions. Rather than simply make audiences aware that we are all vulnerable to bias, Stephen shows specific ways investors can turn these naturally occurring flaws into a competitive advantage.
Living Life Deliberately
More than 25 years ago, Stephen began applying what cognitive science has taught us, to his personal life. His long list of achievements and the reputation he has earned as “one of the most interesting people”, are directly attributable to an approach he developed called, Bija. While many marvel at the results, he readily admits there is nothing inherently amazing about him, or his accomplishments. In this talk, Stephen describes what Bija means, and how it can be used to live life to its fullest potential.
