Bill Foote

I've worked in commodities businesses globally for many a business cycle. As a banker, trader, consultant, and investor I have advised companies and public sector organizations on ways to improve their physical and financial value chains. As a finance professor I learned how to research and communicate complex ideas in easier to understand ways. My goal is to provide you with the story behind the story of how commodities based companies in mining, agriculture, and energy make and lose money.
