TDV: Hello, Tom, thanks for sitting down with us. Before we ask you about the markets, we heard you went to the FreedomFest conference in Las Vegas recently. I normally go but have decided to stay out of the US for now. But, tell us about that.
Tom Conrad: I just got back and it was quite an experience. So many interesting people were there – Doug Casey, Peter Schiff, George Gilder, Steve Forbes – and people in the news like Donald Trump. I would say about 2,200 people attended and filled the hotel. Many were, of course, libertarians and Tea Party types.
