III. Viewpoint Notes
Dr. Tiemann ‘s unique viewpoint expresses itself in a series of engaging essays — what we call “notes” — written on a variety of topics. With more than fifty published notes tracing back to even earlier than 2002 (when TIA was founded), Dr. Tiemann has covered many of the essential issues pertaining to investment theory, the financial industry, portfolio management, fiscal and monetary policies, trends like bitcoin and much more. Notes are longer-form essays which delve into great depth on a specific topic that happens to be of interest to Dr. Tiemann, such as asking “What is Money?” These are posted as PDF documents in reverse chronological order and can be accessed from the Viewpoint Notes page, using the animated slider or the archive (which takes you to the note’s “landing page,” from where the PDF can be accessed.) Currently, Dr. Tiemann has been conducting historical research into how banking developed during the Gold Rush era and recently published a note entitled “Banking Without Banks.” He’s been finding a lot of interesting historical information, so we are looking forward to seeing more notes published in this area.
