Ben Hunt

Featuring Ben Hunt

Beginning with the words ‘History doesn’t repeat, but it sure does rhyme’, Salient Partners CRO and author of Epsilon Theory, Ben Hunt applies the dual lenses of game theory and history to geopolitical economics, and the power of narratives on the markets of China, Russia, and Europe. A thought-provoking and engaging perspective to expand your mind.

    I have been a reader of Ben's Epsilon Theory since he began writing it and he has opened my eyes to considerations to make in my trading that escaped me before. An outstanding thinker.
