From 2006 to 2010, Tom produced a popular weekly economic commentary for Laffer Associates, an economic research firm founded by Dr. Arthur Laffer. Tom began by “channeling” Arthur Laffer in his commentaries. Learning to apply the supply-side framework to analyzing economic policies and their effect on asset prices and other behavior led Tom to publish a number of papers on emerging markets, commodities and other topics.
Prior to his years at Laffer Associates, Tom was Managing Director and Head of Institutional Equity Sales for Avondale Partners, an institutional equity research and investment banking firm. In 2005, The Wall Street Journal recognized Avondale as the top stock-picking firm on Wall Street.Tom spent 8 years in institutional equity sales for the Robinson-Humphrey Co. where he was the top salesman. Tom covered west coast money managers for RH.
Maybe most importantly, Tom was a stand-up comic at Catch a Rising Star and other leading New York comedy clubs early in his career. To some, there’s little to laugh at in today’s economy but Tom manages to shed a humorous light on the predictable circumstances that led to our current economic challenges.
