Michael Krieger is the creator and editor of Liberty Blitzkrieg. I'm originally from New York City. He attended college at Duke University where he earned a double major in Economics and Spanish. After completing his studies in 2000, he took a job at Lehman Brothers where he worked with the Oil analyst in the Equity Research Department.  In 2005, he joined Sanford C. Bernstein where he served as the Commodities Analyst on the trading floor. About halfway through his time there, he started to branch out and write opinions on bigger picture "macro" topics that no one else at the firm was covering. In the years that followed, he gradually recognized that his true passion centered upon writing on issues of significant societal importance given the extremely challenging times we live in. This realization culminated with his losing interest in financial markets and eventually launching the website libertyblitzkrieg in early 2012.
