The article focuses on the Financial Analysts Seminar (FAS), sponsored by the Association for Investment Management and Research that was held on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in 1996. FAS consisted of 25 educational sessions, each lasting an hour and 15 minutes, presented over five days and five nights, and a "mock trading" session held at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Strangely enough the two sessions focusing on financial accounting issues provided some of the most interesting and timely information. There were four speakers touching on subjects related to economics and politics, but one of them had same especially noteworthy observations. The ubiquitous and enlightening Richard Hokenson, chief economist for Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Inc. gave an excellent presentation on economic demographics. Noted author, private investor, and media gadfly Jimmy Rogers gave attendees the benefit of his investment experience. Rogers is definitely a big-picture guy with a contrarian bent, focusing on basic fundamental secular change of supply and demand for financial instruments or commodities.
