What the Hell Is an Economy?

Eric Johnson

Eric Johnson is the founder/CEO of a software engineering firm and a successful entrepreneur. After selling his firm, he focused on “angel investing” and has invested in more than 50 start-up firms in a variety of industries. He has served on several boards of both profit and non-profit organizations. Eric holds a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Harvey Mudd College and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from San Diego State University.

In 2007, a surprise call from his broker expressing concerns about the economy enabled Eric to make financial decisions that allowed his family to weather the Great Recession. Never wanting to feel financially vulnerable again, he set out on a 15-year journey of empowerment, namely self-education in finance and economics.

In “What the Hell is an Economy,” Eric shares his accumulated knowledge and practical experience so you too will become similarly empowered to make better financial decisions.
