Roy Sebag Public Writings

Since 2004, I have at times published private or public essays. The majority are investment related and for the most part related to a specific investment thesis on a single-name idea. Over time, my writing expanded into global-macroeconomic analysis and natural resources. In the future, I will begin to share some of my writings on philosophy and economic theory in collaboration with others.  I have also started publishing on Medium where you can read my latest thoughts and musings.

My Library - Roy Sebag

When it comes to books, I have a simple system. I order any book that piques my interest either from Amazon or when perusing a local book store. I then keep a "book hopper" around me with the candidates I will likely read at some point in time. Once I complete a book and have sufficiently digested its contents, I add the book to my library. 

My library currently totals 558 books which seems crazy in hindsight. My hopper totals an additional 200~ or so. Since adopting the Kindle for reading, I still make sure I purchase a physical copy for my library. 

At Goldmoney Insights, our proprietary research portal, I came up with the idea to publish book reports as I felt it was a great way to share with our clients the body of knowledge I and other founders at the company have acquired over the years which led us to similar world views. While I have yet to upload all the books, we currently have around 200 book reports which I have recommended.

 

Insatiable Thirst for Wisdom - Roy Sebag

What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom? Do you know? That difference has been my chief concern for over 20 years since I first accessed the internet on my dial-up modem. With unparalleled access to information, I was armed with the ability to finally resolve my unrelenting curiosities on virtually every topic from science to history to economics.

To me, wisdom is the experienced and lucid truth within any epistemology. When information enlightens consciousness to the point where sufficient reflection of the subject matter leaves one empowered forever. 

While I have no formal training or education in any specific discipline, I have found reading and writing to be on par with investing as the primary sources of happiness in my life. I didn't always recognize this. At first, it was merely a requisite as part of my investment process. However, as I began to delve into multiple industries and sectors, I needed to learn more about the world around me and it was through these diverse arrows of inquiry that I began to notice how deep and unquenchable my curiosity was for more information and more wisdom. More importantly, I recognized it was not only investing I was interested in but other disciplines and branches of human thought. 

Though I value my privacy, I have decided in this section to share all my writings and interviews which have been at one point or another made public. These include investor letters, investment idea write-ups, blog posts, interviews, talks, and lectures. It is my hope that I can inspire others to embrace their inner curiosities and continue to satisfy their own virtuous quest for wisdom.
